Women's Ministry Director
To biblically equip women of all ages and stages of life to grow in their roles as as wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends to engage the culture winsomely with the truth of the Gospel in their differing spheres of influence.
We engage women in Bible study, provide opportunities for fellowship and community building, and ongoing mentoring specific to the call of womanhood. The beauty of this ministry is that women from every season of life have opportunity to share and glean together through the study of God's Word.
RefresHer Bible Study
This is the foundation of our Women’s Ministry and it meets twice weekly on Tuesdays at 9am and Wednesdays at 6:30pm to do in depth Bible studies by various authors that speak to the heart of women. This time includes: large group teaching, homework review and fellowship in small groups.
This Bible study series allows women to choose form a variety of courses both topical and practical to meet specific needs of women, such as marriage, parenting, prayer, or deeper Bible study. These studies meet in a smaller group format to allow for more discussion and prayer.
EnricHer meets in a rotation with RefresHer.
