Women of Faith

The Women of Faith are a fellowship group that meet on a quarterly basis throughout the year. This group focus on a time to share in Christian conversation and fellowship with our women neighbors and friends.  Stay tuned for the fall schedule!

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

The Wednesday morning bible study group meets in the Fireside Room at Grace on Wednesdays from 9:30-11:00am.
Starting on September 11th, Wednesday Woman’s Bible Study will begin a study of “Slaying the Giants of your Life” by David Jeremiah.
In this book, you will look at the giants that continue to intimidate us: Fear. Discouragement. Loneliness. Worry. Guilt. Temptation. Anger. Resentment. Doubt. Procrastination. Failure. Jealousy.  Whichever giant may be bullying you, the message of this series is that God has the strength to bring you victory! Further check out this study by clicking here.
Study guides will be available in the church office.  We hope you will join us in our journey to better understand how we can stand against these giants through the use our faith.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study

The Wednesday evening bible study group meets in Room # 205 at Grace on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 6:30pm-7:30pm.
New Evening Women’s Bible Study begins Wednesday, September 18th.
Looking for a closer community of faith? Join us at 6:30pm in Room # 205 for the start of a study “40 Verses to Ignite Your Faith” as we examine what is means to live life in community.  Check out the trailer on Right Now Media!

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Knitters/Crocheters meet in the Fireside Room on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 3:00pm.
Knitters and crocheters come together and use their talents to make prayer shawls.  All knit shawls are prayed over before being distributed. These prayer shawls are used to console those who are grieving, comfort those who are ill, and bring hope to those in despair. They may also be knit/crocheted to celebrate life and its milestones.

Faith Partners

From now through the end of the year, we’ll pray together using a women’s devotional by Sarah Young, serve together by assisting with Grace’s new baby ministry, and hold each other accountable over coffee dates, email check-ins, and more! Groups and themes to rotate seasonally. To join a group, please email Colette Cocco at coccohome@comcast.net or Meagan Cassel at meagancassel@gmail.com.
