Women's Ministry

The Women’s Ministry of Christ Church seeks to encourage and equip women to know Christ, to think biblically, use their gifts, and embrace their identity as women in Christ as they live covenantally and extend God’s kingdom in their lives, homes, church, and throughout the world.

Our desire is to serve women with a ministry that is God centered, staying close to God’s word and plan. We also want to be Grace Centered, that is, to cherish the gospel as God’s answer for our brokenness and sin as we proclaim the truth. So as to cultivate grace and truth into our lives, we seek to live it out through a loving community, affirming and encouraging one another in our callings. Lastly, with renewed hearts and relationships, our hope is to join with Jesus Christ in extending love and compassion to the hurting and discouraged women.

Messy Grace: How a Pastor with Gay Parents Learned to Love Others Without Sacrificing Conviction- Author Caleb Kaltenbach “invites readers into what may be the most urgent and difficult conversation evangelical Christians face today: how can we hold true to what the Bible says about sexuality and be gracious at the same time? How can we wrestle i the tension of grace and truth? What does it look like to love and treat people well even if we disagree with them? This book will help you find answers to these questions and other issues that you might not have thought of yet” (Messygracebook.com). Cathy Wilson will facilitate this study and the ladies will meet on Monday nights at 7:00pm at Barb Loy's home. Contact Cathy for more details.

We host a variety of events in addition to bible studies to promote these beliefs. To find out more about Women’s Ministry or to find information about upcoming events, check the church calendar.
