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.

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'll be using John Ortberg’s book, If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat, which uses the Matthew 14 story and other Scripture to challenge us to move beyond our fear and fix our eyes on Jesus. Together we’ll learn about how to discern God’s voice and discover the places He is calling us. For more information, contact Julie Meiners at email@example.com. Women's Edition is $20 per semester and you can sign up for the course using the button below. Childcare is currently full, but you can be put on the waitlist when you signup for the class.

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, time 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. Childcare is currently full, but you can be put on the waitlist when you signup for the class.Register

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.
