Women of Grace

The women’s ministry at Grace seeks to bring women of all ages together to encourage one another, to grow in faith, and to share Christ with those in our community. Women of Grace offers a variety of Bible studies and fellowship groups as well as outreach opportunities and special events.

No matter what your age or your stage in life, you’ll find a place to connect and grow in your spiritual journey.

In addition to the offerings below, we also have a class available during Midweek Grace. See the Midweek Grace page for more details by clicking here.

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

    Here at MOPS, we are 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.

    What does a typical MOPS morning look like?

    Peoria MOPS meets at Grace Presbyterian Church every other Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. We enjoy speakers, crafts, and breakfast together. There’s plenty of time each morning for kid-free conversations at your tables. While the moms are together, infant through pre-K children are cared for in our MOPS Kids program.

    • God of Creation
      A video based study of Genesis by Jen Wilkin. Where did everything come from? Why are we here? Why is the world so broken? How can that brokenness be made right? In its first eleven chapters, the Book of Genesis addresses our deepest questions, declaring to us a transcendent God and shaping our understanding of the Bible as a whole. Join Jen Wilkin for this video based study of Genesis 1-11 and search these passage for their larger meaning in the story of Scripture and in the life of every believer.
    • Quilting & More
      A close “knit” group of women of all ages who meet for fellowship, encouragement, and prayer. Each morning we have a devotion and time of sharing show-and-tell projects followed by a project demonstration or work day. While quilting is the focus, there are women who knit, crochet, and craft too. We find joy in doing community projects, taking field trips, and a yearly retreat to Shipshewana, Indiana. All women are welcome!
    • Side By Side
      A ministry to women who are married to medical and dental students, residents, fellows, as well as staff physicians and dentists. We are a non-denominational, Bible-based ministry that is evangelical in nature. We seek to encourage, support, and minister to women in medical marriages through fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.
    • Spanish Bible Study
      “Prioridades en la Vida” is the study of “life priorities” as seen in the Bible. This class, taught mainly in Spanish, is open to Spanish speakers of all levels who desire a small group atmosphere to study God’s Word and grow in faith.
    • What Matters Most: A Study of Philippians
      A video based study by Karen Ehman. The world has always been full of trials, disappointments, temptations, fractured friendships, and financial hardships. Yet Paul’s letter to the Phillipians shows we can discover contentment and joy in the midst of it all by prioritizing what matters most – Christ.

    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.
