Welcome to Women’s Ministries at Christ Community. The heart of our Women’s Ministries is to welcome, encourage, connect, and serve women as we journey together. We offer a variety of ways to connect for women of all ages and stages of life, including Bible studies, MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), serving opportunities, and fellowship events.
Studies are offered during the week, both daytime and evening. Most morning studies offer childcare. We offer regular opportunities for the women of our church to come together and serve our local body, our community, and our world. We kick off each ministry year with a fellowship event in late August, highlighting ways to join in for the upcoming year. A variety of other fellowship events occur throughout the year.

Winter 2017 Bible Studies
Women’s winter Bible studies will be starting soon! We hope you’ll plan to join us. The following classes will begin in January. Registration is now open. Childcare for our daytime studies is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so we suggest registering soon.
Monday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm (begins January 9, 2017)
1 Peter by Jen Wilkin
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.
For more information on this study, please contact Judy Gray.
Tuesday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm (begins January 10, 2017)
Hosea by Jennifer Rothschild
Hosea, an Old-Testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. This seven-session study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You’ll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply, the message of the prophet of love.
For more information on this study, please contact Deb Tosh.
Thursday mornings, 9:15-11:15am (begins January 12, 2017)
The Amazing Collection: The Bible, Book by Book
This is a collection of studies, working through the Bible from beginning to end. It is designed to help you know and understand the big picture of God’s Word through learning the purpose, theme, history, and spiritual application of each book of the Bible. During the winter session, Hebrews through Revelation will be covered.
For more information, contact Amy Hill.
Thursday mornings, 9:15-11:15 am (begins January 12, 2017)
Breathe by Priscilla Shirer
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
