At Grace we offer many ways to connect, hear teaching, and participate in small group discussion for women in all seasons of life. We want to be women who change the world, so this time together helps equip us as leaders and influencers!
Women's Bible Studies
Our desire is for women to learn to walk with Jesus, live in freedom, and make disciples (people who follow Jesus). We do this through Bible study, prayer, and building community.
DVD studies are held at Grace on Mondays, 6:30-8:30pm or Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30am.
Several studies are offered throughout the year, and you can join anytime! Bring a friend. Meet new friends. Women's Bible Study meets in the Student Center in the Family Center (South Building). The group is open to women aged 16 and above. Women’s Book Club meets Mondays at 5:30pm in the same location as Women’s Bible Study, during the weeks Women’s Bible Study is in session.
No Other Gods
by Kelly Minter
Mondays, Jan 28 - Mar 25, Nov 26 • 6:30pm OR Wednesdays, Jan 30 - Mar 27 • 9:30am (No meeting Feb 18 & 20)
Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone.
In this 8-session study, learn to identify the functional gods you are serving daily and the lies they tell. Only when you learn to dethrone modern-day idols can you pursue a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.
Study guide available for $18 at Women’s Bible Study.
Get Out of That Pit, by Beth Moore

Love to read good books that will help you grow in your Christian walk? Join us for a weekly 30-minute informal discussion of Guarded by Christ, by Heather Holleman.
Ever been in a pit? Are you in one now? Is somebody you love living there? Don’t think for one second that God has forgotten, says Beth Moore. No matter how you got stuck, no matter how long you’ve been down, whether you think you deserve it or not, your Redeemer is waiting. And He has promised that you can begin this very day to Get Out of That Pit once and for all. Are you ready to be delivered?
Books are available from Kelly Jenkins at Women’s Bible Study for $10 while supplies last, or from your favorite online bookseller. (Please read chapters 1and 2 before our first meeting on Jan 28.)

TO THE FULL
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." – John 10:10 (NIV)
Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life? Sometimes we need the reminder that life is meant to be lived to the full. That it is OK to enjoy ourselves, to let our hair down, to worry less, and to really suck the marrow out of life (who even says that? I guess we do now.) Because as far as we can tell, this is exactly how God intended for us to live- fully and abundantly.
It’s easy to forget what that feels like, though. One day we’re wide-eyed and the possibilities are endless, and then slowly, without even realizing it, we find ourselves dulled by the routines and disappointments that are a part of being human. We slowly start to lose our optimism and zest for life.
All that is about to change, because this next year is about the full life. Which means living grateful, joyful, and hopeful. It means being led by the Good Shepherd and trusting that everything is working out exactly as it should.
We’ll say farewell to auto pilot and regain our vitality. We’ll have more fun, get to know new people, stop fearing what could go wrong or being so afraid of what others think. We will enjoy our kids like never before, and someday, when they wonder what life to the full looks like, they will look no farther than how mom does it.
But here’s one important thing to remember: this idea of life to the full isn’t about striving for more. It’s not about striving at all. It is about recognizing that life isn’t a bunch of goals to achieve, or people to please; but an invitation to savor, delight, and enjoy your life just a little more.
If you have ever felt like you aren’t enough, if you have forgotten to have fun, or feel like you have lost your spark, then this is the fresh start you have been waiting for.
MOPS is a gathering place for Mothers of Preschoolers, this includes women who are just beginning their pregnancy all the way through kindergarten graduation! We meet at Grace Church on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month to enjoy a warm breakfast and an opportunity to discuss topics that are important to us as moms, wives, and women seeking Jesus.
We also provide an experience for your children to learn and grow through our childcare program, MOPS Kids. In order to ensure accurate and safe child to teacher ratios, you must be officially registered in order to attend Grace MOPS. For the Fall 2019 semester we will meet, beginning September 10th, on the following Tuesdays: 9/10, 9/24, 10/22, 11/12, 11/26, and 12/10. We meet from 9:30am-11:30am in the Family Center at Grace. The cost for our fall semester is $50, this includes your dues for both MOPS International and Grace MOPS. We look forward to building friendships with you as we seek Jesus together!
