Women of Grace play an integral part in whom Grace is as a church and in each other’s lives. Women from all walks of life come together to learn, study the Bible and engage in authentic community. We do this through Women’s Edition, Real Moms, GO Groups, special events and retreats.

This is for women of all ages and from all walks of life to grow as they study the Bible and engage in authentic community. Each week you’ll hear from our teaching team, discuss the lesson with your small group and engage with God while utilizing the course materials at home. This past semester, we used John Ortberg’s book, If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat, to examine the Matthew 14 story and other Scripture to challenge us to move beyond our fear and fix our eyes on Jesus. Watch messages from this series. Check back soon for details on our upcoming offering. For more information, contact Julie Meiners at juliem@gracechurch.us.

Real Moms 

146th Street: Wednesdays or Thursdays, January 20/21 – May 11/12 from 9:30–11:30 a.m. 

Real Moms is a place where moms of little ones (elementary-aged children and younger) are free to be themselves and ask questions about life and faith. Since being a mother brings incredible joy while adding lots of responsibilities, moms are invited to take a break and find fresh insight and encouragement while building lasting friendships with other moms. Each week you’ll have time to enjoy breakfast, chat with your small group and hear more about relevant topics. Real Moms is $15 per semester and you can sign up for the course using the button below.
