women OF GRACE ministry

The Women of Grace offers women of all ages an opportunity to develop meaningful friendships,
receive support and encouragement, and grow in the knowledge of our Lord.  

We meet for times of fellowship, and gather for Bible studies throughout the year. 

We cap our year with a Women's Retreat in the Fall and a Christmas Tea in December.

to forgive

Thursdays at 10 am - Room 103.

Led by Laura Rarity lrarity48@gmail.com.
We are going to explore different aspects of our Christian walk, many times we don’t understand why we don’t grow, and like the Apostle Paul said: "You are still drinking milk, while you should eating solid food." In this analogy, he is telling us: "Don’t continue to be like babies, but grow in the Lord, for only God makes things grow." (1Cor 3). 

He is giving us a model, grace given to us when forgiven, grace given to others who trespassed again us. This act of forgiveness will free us from any “root of bitterness”
as we are told in (Heb 12:15); harvesting anger and hostility that eat away the joy
of the soul. 

As believers we are all pressing on, if we are still here, that means no one has arrived yet. As we get together, we learn from each other, we grow and change to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Register HERE. Childcare available.


Ladies, mark your calendars now. We want to see you at these events, and we encourage you
to invite a friend to join you!
