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.

EVENTS

Women Connect

A casual evening giving women in all ages and stages of life the opportunity to connect with each other over a meal, hear a thought-provoking speaker address an issue all women face, and share their own thoughts with each other via round table discussion. 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.

M.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) from 9:15 am until 11:30 am. Childcare is provided for children 5 and under. Cost is $60 (with childcare)/ $45 (without childcare). 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.
