Women of Grace

Opportunities for Women

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 studies, serving groups, special events, and retreats. 

Women's Studies

Women’s Edition: The Parables of Jesus

We invite women of all ages and walks of life to grow in their relationship with God. Each week, you’ll hear a lesson, spend time with your small group talking about life and faith, and have the opportunity to engage with God through study materials. This winter, we will dive into The Parables of Jesus. Everyone loves a good story. Jesus was a skilled storyteller who used the familiar to communicate God’s heart and mind and open His listeners’ eyes to the possibility of a life following Him. Together we will consider what these powerful, timeless parables may be calling us to today. The course is $20 and includes all materials. Contact Julie Meiners with questions!
Morning Children's Programming & Evening Childcare: This is only available at our 146th Street campus (see registration for details and applicable fees).

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.
