Growth and Connection
Women of Grace
Welcome to Women's Ministry at Grace Presbyterian Church! We are thrilled you stopped by our page!
Our goal is to create a space where each woman feels welcomed and cared for. Whether you need a soft place to land, or you're ready for an in-depth Bible study, or something in-between, we hope you'll find what you need for the season of life you're in.
We offer weekly Bible studies, support groups, and special events. Please feel free to reach out to me, Brenda Garrison, with any questions or comments.
Tuesday Bible Studies
Tuesday mornings at Grace Pres are a fun time of studying God’s Word while growing in relationship with other women—fancy wording for making friends!
Studies will run Tuesdays 9:30–11:30 a.m.
A children’s program is available during our studies:
- Nursery care
- Preschool program which includes: Bible lesson, craft, snack, and activities
Groups offered Spring 2023
Tuesday Morning Bible Study | Normi Howard
In a world that boasts more connection, many people feel less connected and less known than ever. This is not true in our relationship with God. “God’s heart is moved by your cries for help, your shouts for joy, your unspoken worries...Mark’s account of Jesus paints Him as a deeply personal and intimate God too,” shares Lisa Harper. Join Normi and the group in the study of The Gospel of Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For by Lisa Harper.
Rooted Women Bible-Only Bible Study | Jorie Dahlin | Esther and Ruth
Do people in the Bible ever seem distant to you? Would you like to know Esther and Ruth as if they were close personal friends, while deepening friendships with women at Grace? If so, please join us for this Bible-Only Bible Study. Each week, we will read a chapter of the Bible together and discuss it using a series of thought-provoking questions. We will gain a fresh perspective on how God worked in both their lives, and how He works in our lives today.
Quilters & More | Pat Ivaska
A sweet group of women who share the passion of quilting. Each meeting time consists of a devotional, time to give prayer requests, show and tell, and either a demonstration or workday. All women are welcome. If you have ever wanted to learn to quilt and spend time with precious, godly women, check out this group.
Side-by-Side is a Christian international group for the wives of doctors and dentists. This group offers support and encouragement in a biblically based study. This semester the women will be studying, Prescription for the Doctor's Wife by Debby Reed.

This group of moms with littles will be studying the book of Ephesians and the book Fit to Burst by Rachel Jankovic..

Monday Morning Prayer
We meet weekly to pray together
All women are invited to attend a weekly time of prayer for our church, our nation, our missionaries, and our own personal requests. We begin each week with a devotional or a sharing time by a missionary. Then we divide into groups and spend time in prayer.
For more information contact Mary Jane Crowell at (309) 674-5313.
Moms in Prayer
Praying for our children
Moms In Prayer is an international group whose vision is that “every school in the world would be covered with prayer.” MIP helps moms (and grandmothers) in their local schools to pray for the children, teachers, staff, administration, and school board. They meet for one hour a week.

Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship
And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
