building a community to reach a community

Grace Women Groups

Welcome to Grace Women Groups!

These gathering places will help you discover the richness and meaning of true community with other women. We strive to develop group environments where you can learn to replace the lies of the world with His truth and expect Him to change you and use you, alongside other women. We encourage you to take the challenge presented in each of these groups of diving deeper into the truth of God.

We look forward to spending time in God’s Word and in life-giving conversation with one another! We hope that you will find a group where you can connect and grow.

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around us. The enemy wants everything that matters to us—our emotions, our mind, our family, our future… Through our position in Christ we can experience the tangible, long-term effects of victory in practical, every day living. This Bible Study is an action plan for putting on our armor and developing a personalized strategy to secure the victory against the enemy.

Join Wendy McAuley on a seven-week journey of unpacking the full armor of God from Ephesians 6. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood…” This study gives you the tools to stand firm and have victory through the day-to-day struggles of life.

Living Freely in a Culture of Comparison

Facilitator: Cara Chute
When: Tuesdays, beginning September 5
Time: 8:00-9:30pm
Location: leader's home
Materials Needed: Seated With Christ by Heather Holleman (may be purchased at first meeting)
Cost: $12 (for the book)
Childcare: Not available

Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit. As Christians find themselves trapped in the rhetoric of influence, retweets, platform and fame, they need a ladder out of the fray. Scripture says that God’s beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 2:6), treasured by Him, and given a place at His table. This means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves to others. We leap free from cycles of shame. Seated With Christ gets to the root of this behavior and charts a path to freedom.

Join Cara for this eight-week study in her home after the soccer game, dinner, kids baths or late work meeting… join other women for a brief interlude in your week to focus on you! Space is limited. 

God is in the Abstract

Facilitator: Renee Pitts
When: Tuesdays, beginning September 19
Time: 6:30-8:00pm
Location: Room 402
Materials Needed: Journal & favorite pen
Cost: $20 (for art materials)
Childcare: available with registration (suggested $5 donation per family per meeting)

“Difficult to understand, insufficiently factual, without visual reference,” all terms to describe abstract painting, according to Miriam Webster’s online dictionary.

Those same terms could be used to describe life at times. And as we live our lives, it is important to remember that God is in the abstract. Like an abstract painting our faith is “confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1). Come learn a process of Bible Study and art journaling that allows you to find reality in God’s word and your personal journey. As we “look through a glass darkly now” (1 Corinthians 13:12), we can know and have confidence in God’s love and plan for our lives. 

This personal Bible Study is a unique process developed to enhance the study of God’s Word and art journaling which includes abstract painting methods, drawing and planning compositions. The activities and personalized study will allow the Creator’s message to “paint” our lives in a way that enlightens and strengthens us for living in this “abstract” world. You do not have to be an artist to participate. Instruction and encouragement will be given for each Bible study and art technique included in the class. Space is limited.
