Ministry to Women

Creating a nurturing community of transparent women rooted in Christ, growing in faith, and sharing their stories for the glory of God

We have the opportunity to do life together. In all our fears, failings, struggles, and dreams, we can walk as women seeking to know Christ, while encouraging, supporting, and caring for each other. The cause and call of Christ are too compelling to hide behind a mask of perfection, and there is great power in a community that allows us to be honest and vulnerable. In so doing, we find that God is enough and that in Him and in His Word there is hope and healing for absolutely everything that distresses and tries to defeat us. Our faith is rooted in the truth and reliability of God’s Word. When faced with situations that are beyond our ability to analyze or understand, we seek not only to learn more about God and His truth but also to put our trust in Him Who is worthy of our confidence. And then, because God is worthy to receive honor and glory through lives that He has redeemed and continues to nurture, we will share our stories and make Him known through the victories, healing, and everyday faithfulness He has given.
