Women played a vital role throughout the Bible and in Jesus’ life. Likewise, the 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.
146th Street: Tuesdays, September 8 – November 17 from 7:00–8:30 p.m.
146th Street: Wednesdays, September 9 – November 18 from 9:30–11:30 a.m.
Women’s Edition invites 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 semester, we will be diving into the book of Hebrews. This book is applicable to everyone — those beginning to consider the claims of Jesus and those who have been a Christ follower for years. It declares Old Testament religious practices to be no longer necessary in light of the new way provided in Jesus. This new way is focused on who Jesus is and what it looks like to be His follower. Facing persecution and finding themselves excluded from their communities, first-century Christians began questioning whether Jesus really was God’s final remedy. Some even considered going back to their old ways of doing things. Together, we’ll uncover more about Jesus and this new way of faith. For more information, contact Julie Meiners at firstname.lastname@example.org. Women's Edition is $20 per semester and you can sign up for the course, and childcare, using the button below.Women's Edition Registration

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, laughter and connection while hearing more about relevant topics. You’ll also have lots of time to hang out and discuss life and faith with your small group. Real Moms is $15 per semester and you can sign up for the course, and childcare, using the button below.Real Moms Registration

GO Groups are designed to launch small groups of women into the kingdom mission. These groups provide the privilege to come alongside those struggling to meet basic needs, lend hands-on practical help to like-minded organizations and increase the awareness of the realities of injustice in our world while tangibly expressing the heart of God through service. There are no registration fees to participate in a GO Group. However, group members may incur some incidental costs. Space is limited and each group requires registration.
