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.

Square 1

We know the questions and challenges of being a mom for the first time can be difficult to navigate alone! That’s why Square 1 is a unique ministry designed for first-time mothers and their newborns, 6 months and younger. In Square 1, you will not only meet other first-time moms and connect with mentors, but will be provided insight into issues prevalent to this unique time of life. This 7-week class for mother and baby meets Tuesday mornings, from 9:30-11:30 am, at the Old Jacksonville campus. Fall classes start September 12th!

Contact Starla Lawerence for more info at: boxo@AOL.com

Cost: $10.00

M.O.P.S.

As a mom of preschool-aged children, you can easily feel isolated and lonely.  MOPS is a place where you can be connected with other moms in a similar season of life, while learning from mentors who have thrived through motherhood. Many moms have found a great community in MOPS and are so thankful for the godly wisdom gained from our mentors and speakers.
MOPS meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month (September – May broken into 2 semesters) from 9:15- 11:30 am. Childcare is provided for children 6 months to 5 years old. Cost is $65 (with childcare) or $45 (without childcare) per semester (September-December & January-May), and scholarships are available, upon request. Throughout the year, we will hear from speakers on a variety of topics like marriage, parenting, money, and so forth! We also have crafts, door prizes, and games,  but we always set aside time 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 eight. Moms do not have to be a member of Grace Community Church to attend MOPS!

Women Connect

A casual evening giving women of all ages and in all stages of life the opportunity to connect with each other over an issue with which all women wrestle. Join us to hear a thought-provoking speaker address the issue from a Biblical viewpoint, then stay for dessert and mingle with other women to continue conversations about it.  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.
