Women’s Ministry is a place where you are valued as a unique child of God, encouraged toward greater intimacy with Jesus, and challenged to explore your purpose in the body of Christ.
Our mission is to love, encourage and lead women in deepening their relationship with Jesus by connecting with each other and studying the Word of God together.
July 12 – August 2 || 4 weeks || 6:45-8:15pm
We invite you to join us this summer as we come together to worship and to walk through the book of James.
MOPS is a place to find community in the season of early motherhood – being a mom to children from Birth through Kindergarten makes you a MOPS mom! Come and hear you aren’t alone when another mom says, “Me too!” You will be encouraged and equipped as a woman and as a mom. Join us as we journey through motherhood together!
MOMSNext is also offered in conjunction with both of our MOPS groups. Between school activities, extra-curricular activities, and perhaps working too, there is little time left for mom friendships. Here you will find Mom Friends while being encouraged and equipped for a new and challenging stage of life – when the kids are in school! If you have children in 1st grade and up, MOMSNext is for you. There is no childcare for Morning MOMSNext. There is a fee to be a part of MOPS, contact the Group Coordinator to get more information and to join! Space may be limited.
Watch what MOPS is like HERE!

What does it mean to be a Christian in our culture today? For some people, it is a characteristic that defines the very core of who they are. Sadly for others, it is merely one of many adjectives used to describe them, and can easily be dropped depending upon the political climate or social circles they are in at the time. The first time the name “Christian” was used was in Acts 11:26. The Greeks in Antioch did not know what to call the Apostles and their followers, so they gave them the name “Christian” which meant “of the party of Christ”. Jesus, however, never referred to His followers by that name. Instead, Jesus called His Apostles and His followers by the title “disciple.” A disciple is simply one who is a student of a specific teacher and follows their teachings and doctrines. To be a true follower of Jesus, you must follow the teachings of Jesus, but you can’t follow them until you understand who Jesus is and what He stood for.
The book of Colossians was written by the apostle Paul many years ago, but still relevant today! The first century Colossians struggled with letting cultural norms creep into and distort foundational truths of Jesus’ identity and Christianity. Join us this summer as we dig into Paul’s letter to the Colossians. You will discover Christ’s sufficiency and His true glory, while learning basic foundational truths of the faith. You will be challenged to live a new life, one that is rooted in Christ alone.
We live in a culture that is skeptical of anything free, yet God tells us there are no strings attached, just come and delight in His abundance. We are invited to God’s banquet table at no cost. Let’s be women who respond to God’s gracious invitation, knowing it is only in Him that our desire for abundance can truly be satisfied!
