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.

SPRING 2018 BIBLE STUDIES

This Spring, we will provide both Tuesday morning (with limited childcare) and Wednesday evening studies, kicking off on February 20th and 21st! Check out a detailed list of our studies below.

Registration opens January 14th!

 

TUESDAY MORNING STUDIES:

  • The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer; 7 weeks; Co-leaders: Ann Schwarz & Robin Coe.

“All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. But- when the enemy meets a woman dressed for the occasion, he fails miserably. Join Priscilla Shirer in a Bible study of Ephesians 6 that will challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life. “

  • Chosen: a Bible-Journaling Study; 7 weeks; Co-leaders: Colleen Davis and Brittany Carleton.

Join us this spring for a Bible-Journaling study that will help you both simply and creatively engage in God’s Word. No experience required! Cost: $20.00 which includes journal and supplies.

  • Hosea: Unfailing Love Changes Everything by Jennifer Rothschild; 7 weeks; Co-leaders: Sharon Bendy & Claudia Cole.
“We are all prone to wander from God and our identity in Him.  Through this study of Hosea, we get a correct Christian perspective on who we really are: a loved, accepted, and complete woman of God.”
  • Proven: Where Christ’s Abundance Meets Our Great Need by Jennie Allen; 8 weeks; Co-leaders: Jess Kemp & Cimber Cummings.

“Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don’t measure up… We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. In this study, Jennie Allen walks through the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything…”

 

 

WEDNESDAY EVENING STUDIES: 

  • The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer; 7 weeks; Co-leaders: Karla Foreman & Paula Evans.

“All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. But- when the enemy meets a woman dressed for the occasion, he fails miserably. Join Priscilla Shirer in a Bible study of Ephesians 6 that will challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life. ”

  • Children of the Day: 1 & 2 Thessalonians by Beth Moore; 9 weeks; Co-leaders: Kathy Welch & Debbie Morris.

“During this study, you’ll learn how to let go of past mistakes and discover your circumstances are not coincidental – God’s timing is impeccable! Whether you’re facing crises, troubles, doubts, or fears, you’ll come away encouraged that even though it may not feel that way, you are exactly where Christ wants you to be!”

  • Live a Praying Life by Jennifer Kennedy Dean; 13 weeks; Co-leaders: Laura Duncan & Mary Dirksen.

Join us as we take a look at the Biblical heart of prayer in Live a Praying Life. In this 13 week study, we will learn not just how to have a healthy prayer life, but how to actually live a life of prayer filled with the power of God!

  • Proven: Where Christ’s Abundance Meets Our Great Need by Jennie Allen; 8 weeks; Co-leaders: Beth Reed & Stori Nix.

“Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don’t measure up… We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. In this study, Jennie Allen walks through the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything…”

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. Spring 2018 classes start February 20th (We will take off the week of March 13th for Spring Break).

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.
