Grace Women’s Ministry exists to help women transform into fully devoted Christ-followers.  As we shape our ministry around the values of worship, mission and community, we hope women will find joy in making Christ ultimate, in joining the work of expanding His kingdom and in developing authentic relationships that reflect His love.


Women Connect | ANXIOUS: Choosing Faith in a World of Worry | REGISTRATION NOW!

Invite your friends to hear award-winning author Amy Simpson challenge our popular approaches to worry.  Beyond relying on shear willpower to overcome worry, Amy will offer us hope that is rooted in what we believe about God.
When: Tuesday, Nov. 15, 7:00 p.m.
Where: Old Jacksonville Campus
Cost: $10
Limited childcare is available for single moms of children ages 6 months to 4 years.
Women Connect is a casual evening, giving women in all ages and stages of life the opportunity to hear a thought-provoking speaker address an issue all women face, to hear God’s perspective on the topic, and to share their own thoughts with each other afterwards in a casual atmosphere over dessert and coffee.

No matter what the topic of the night may be, our hope is that women walk away with a stronger desire to be rightly connected to God, His word and others.

Need encouragement and accountability when it comes to studying God’s word?

Join us this fall as we study Kathleen Nielson‘s book, REBUILD, a Study in Nehemiah. This Bible study focuses on God’s redemptive love, as He directs Nehemiah to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. It’s a compelling story that has lessons for us today.

Limited child care is available for the Tuesday morning sessions only.

WM - MOPS - Web BannerM.O.P.S.

As a mom of preschool aged children, it is easy to feel isolated and lonely.  MOPS is a place where you can be connected with other moms in a similar season of life and learn from the mentors who have thrived through motherhood.
Our MOPS group meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month (September – May broken into 2 semesters) from 9:15 am until 11:30 am. Childcare is provided for children 6 months to 5 years old. Cost is $65 (with childcare)/ $45 (without childcare) per semester (September-December & January-May). Scholarships are available, upon request. Throughout the year, we will hear from speakers on a variety of topics like marriage, parenting, money, etc. We will also do crafts, play games, door prizes, but we always have time set aside for visiting with each other – all while your little ones enjoy some fun time with their playmates. Our MOPS group has about 50 moms who are divided into smaller groups of about eight. Moms do not have to be a member of Grace Community Church to attend MOPS.
Many moms have found a great community in MOPS and are so thankful for the godly wisdom from the mentors and speakers.
