Women of Grace

Welcome to Women's Ministry at Grace Presbyterian Church! We are thrilled you stopped by our page!

Our goal is to create a space where each woman feels welcomed and cared for. Whether you need a soft place to land, or you're ready for an in-depth Bible study, or something in-between, we hope you'll find what you need for the season of life you're in.

We offer weekly Bible studies, support groups, and special events. Please feel free to reach out to me, Brenda Garrison, with any questions or comments.

I look forward to meeting you!

    A place to refresh and renew
    with other moms just like you!

    MOPS is on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving.

    This year moms need MOPS more than ever!

    MOPS will start September 17, 2021. Stay tuned for more details here and on the MOPS Facebook page. Contact Brenda Garrison with any questions."

    Women's Summer Bible Study
    Summer 2021

    I want to say "Welcome back!" to everyone who is interested in our women's ministries!

    It's been a long year and a half. We all need refreshment and opportunities to reconnect. I want our women's summer Bible study to be that place of relaxing, connecting as we open the Word of God together. We will gather in the Front Porch room just as women used to gather on their own front porches on summer evenings watching their kids play until the fireflies appeared.

    I want to start the welcome with our summer Bible study on Wednesday evenings, June 30 through August 11. Women of all ages, from high school and up, are welcome to join us. Please feel free to attend as much or as little as fits your schedule! The format of this study is meant to stand alone each week.

    Over the course of eight weeks, we'll be studying the Word through Ruth Chou Simons' newest book, "Truthfilled."

    I love the "Truthfilled" study because Ruth meets us right we are – in our own minds. She experiences the same struggles we do: doubt, insecurity (everyone is!), fear, worry, loneliness, and self-identity issues. Ruth helps us grow in our relationship with God, whether that is hearing from or talking with Him. She gives us practical applications so we can use what we study, thereby growing in our relationship with God and becoming more like Christ.

    We will meet Wednesday evenings in the Front Porch Room from 6:30-8:00 p.m., June 30 - August 11, 2021.

    I can't wait to see you there!

    Woman 2 Woman
    Titus 2 Ministry

    Woman to woman. Day to Day. Life to life. A beautiful model of sharing life between older and younger women is displayed in Titus 2. Many of us feel unqualified to teach others, but we can use our strengths and our failures to point others to God’s amazing grace.

    The women’s ministry at Grace desires to help women of all ages join together in a mentoring relationship. We do this by intentionally planning events that facilitate intergenerational relationships and providing resources as needed.

    If you are interested in finding a mentor or being a mentor, please contact Woman 2 Woman Coordinator, Karen Cordes.

    Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship

    MATTHEW 28:18-20

    And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
