Women of Grace

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.

Current Studies

Women’s Edition

Wednesdays beginning in September from 9:15–11:15 a.m. or 7:00–9:00 p.m. (146th Street)

This semester we dove into, Abundant Simplicity, by Jan Johnson. In our hurried lives, where ‘more is better’ and ‘new is necessary’, we often add more with the hope of finding fulfillment. Unfortunately, overextending ourselves drains our relationship with God and others. Moving toward a simpler, less-cluttered life helps us shed some of the very things that drain us, freeing us to find the fulfillment we’ve been looking for all along. This course is practical and purposeful, filled with ways to simplify our lives as we align our hearts to God.

Real Moms

Wednesdays or Thursdays beginning in September from 9:00–11:30 a.m. (146th Street)

Being a mom brings both incredible joy and responsibility. Real Moms is a place where moms of little ones are free to be themselves and ask questions about life and faith while in community with other moms. Each week, moms are invited to discover fresh insight and be encouraged while building lasting friendships. If you’re a mother of elementary-aged children or younger, join us for breakfast, some fun, a real life topic and small group discussion.

Children's Program

The Children's Program is offered to moms participating in Women's Edition and Real Moms. This program encourages children to grow in their relationship with Jesus through Scripture-based curriculum, story-telling, crafts, snacks, worship and fun-filled playtime. Please register early (when you complete your class registration) as spots fill up quickly. Registrations are processed in the order received and individual classrooms will close when they are full. Per Semester Fees:

  • Wednesday/Thursdays Mornings: 1 Child=$90; 2+ Children=$180 

  • Wednesday Evenings: 1 Child=$50; 2+ Children=$100

  • *Discount provided after second sibling

GO Groups

GO Groups are designed to launch small groups of women into the kingdom mission with a small group of women around a common cause or serving opportunity. These groups provid 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.
