Women of Grace

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 Studies

Women’s Edition  

146th Street Campus
Tuesdays, 7:00–8:30 p.m. September 6 - November 15
Wednesdays, 9:30–11:30 a.m. September 7 - November 16


Fishers at Geist Christian Church
Tuesdays, 7:00–8:30 p.m. September 13 - November 22

Join women of all ages and from all walks of life as we grow in relationship with God. Each week, you’ll hear from our teaching team, spend time with your small group talking about life and faith, and have the opportunity to engage with God through at-home study materials. This fall, we'll dive into An Intimate Remembrance of Jesus, A Study of the Book of John. As you spend time in this gospel, you’ll quickly sense John’s eagerness for his readers to come to know the Jesus he knew. John remembers walking closely behind Jesus, listening attentively to every word spoken, standing beside Him and watching his every move. He notices Jesus’ interactions with all kinds of people, urging them to come closer and believe in Him. Whether this is your first or tenth time reading John, there is no doubt you’ll uncover new insights and fresh nudges toward Jesus. Registration is $20 (includes course materials). For more information, contact juliem@gracechurch.us.

Thursdays, 9:30–11:30 a.m. September 15 - December 8

Being a mother brings both incredible joy and countless responsibilities. Why not take a break and find fresh insight, encouragement and lasting friendships with other moms? 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. Each week, you’ll enjoy breakfast, listen as a speaker gives some insight on practical topics, and share laughter and connection with your small group. For more information, contact Amy Beckey at amyb@gracechurch.us. Registration is $15.

GO Groups

GO Groups are designed to launch small groups of women into the kingdom mission by coming alongside those struggling to meet basic needs, lending practical help to like-minded organizations and tangibly expressing the heart of God through service. There are no registration fees to participate in a GO Group and each group requires registration.
