    Rooted Women
    June 21–July 26, 2023

    Wednesday Evening Bible Study
    June 21–July 26, 2023
    6:30–8:30 p.m.

    Something wonderful happened on Wednesday evenings last summer when women gathered in homes around the greater Peoria area to study God’s Word. Flip-flops, lemonade, and camp chairs added up to a summer of casual community, new friendships, and closer relationships with God.

    The women loved this format so much that we are hosting a similar study this summer on Wednesdays from June 21 to July 26. Every woman has a need to be seen and cared about. As we study several New Testament passages, we will learn how Jesus saw and cared for women and gave them a place in His ministry. By studying these passages, we will see that, even today, we are seen and known by a loving and merciful God.

    Monday Morning Prayer
    We meet weekly to pray together.

    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.
