Women of Grace

The women’s ministry at Grace seeks to bring women of all ages together to encourage one another, to grow in faith, and to share Christ with those in our community. Women of Grace offers a variety of Bible studies and fellowship groups as well as outreach opportunities and special events.

No matter what your age or your stage in life, you’ll find a place to connect and grow in your spiritual journey.

In addition to the offerings below, we also have a class available during Midweek Grace.

    A place to refresh and renew
    with other moms just like you!

    MOPS is on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving.

    This year moms need MOPS more than ever!

    Join us for a virtual mom meet-up on the first Tuesday of each month. We’ll have extraordinary speakers, crafts, and interactive fun. In addition, our small groups will be meeting for safe, socially distanced options to gather.

    Start here by signing up today!

    • “Raised Together: A Study of Colossians” by Gloria Furman
      Paul’s letter to the church at Colossae encourages believers to live out the reality of the doctrine of Christ—He is God, He is supreme, and He is sufficient. We have been buried with Him and raised to life with Him as new creations, knit together in love. Explore themes of fundamental Christian doctrine through verse-by-verse study of Colossians. Learn who Christ is, who you are in Him, and how to grow and mature in your faith. A DVD based study paired with large group and small group discussion. Led by Brenda Garrison and Sarah Alkire.
    • Quilting & More
      A close “knit” group of women of all ages who meet for fellowship, encouragement, and prayer. Each morning we have a devotion and time of sharing show-and-tell projects followed by a project demonstration or work day. While quilting is the focus, there are women who knit, crochet, and craft too. We find joy in doing community projects, taking field trips, and a yearly retreat to Shipshewana, Indiana. All women are welcome!
    • Side By Side
      A ministry to women who are married to medical and dental students, residents, fellows, as well as staff physicians and dentists. We are a non-denominational, Bible-based ministry that is evangelical in nature. We seek to encourage, support, and minister to women in medical marriages through fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
    • Spanish Bible Study
      This class, taught mainly in Spanish, is open to Spanish speakers of all levels who desire a small group atmosphere to study God’s Word and grow in faith. Spring semester we will study “Gracia” by Max Lucado.
    • “God of Covenant: A Study of Genesis 12-50” by Jen Wilkin
      Beginning with Genesis 12, walk alongside the fathers of our faith—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph—to discern Jesus in the stories of His people. Discover how God orchestrates everything for His glory and the good of His people, and see how the God of creation and covenant is the same yesterday, today, and forever. A DVD based study led by Normi Howard and Val Bergia.

    Woman 2 Woman
    Titus 2 Ministry

    Woman to woman. Day to Day. Life to life. A beautiful model of sharing life between older and younger women is displayed in Titus 2. Many of us feel unqualified to teach others, but we can use our strengths and our failures to point others to God’s amazing grace.

    The women’s ministry at Grace desires to help women of all ages join together in a mentoring relationship. We do this by intentionally planning events that facilitate intergenerational relationships and providing resources as needed.

    If you are interested in finding a mentor or being a mentor, please contact Woman 2 Woman Coordinator, Karen Cordes.

    And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
