LIFE Fellowship Bible Studies
(Ladies Instruction For Excellence): LIFE is an in-depth Bible study which meets two Tuesdays a month from September through April. Women work on lessons individually and then meet together for additional instruction, to build up and encourage one another. Morning and evening sessions are offered, with childcare available in the mornings.
The Women’s 2017-2018 LIFE bible study on 1 Peter, by Jen Wilkin has begun. The ladies meet on the second and forth Tuesday of the month. Child care is available for infants and pre schoolers, also including accommodations for home schooled children, during the morning study only. The cost of the study is $24.00 which includes the study book and administration fees. If you have any questions or you would like to join the study please call the church office.
Titus Two Fellowships
These fellowships provide women another opportunity for biblical instruction, practical discussion, and fellowship. Each quarter an evening program is offered on a selected topic. All women ages 13 and up are invited to attend.
“Becoming a Better Home Manager” was the theme of our 2017 Summer Titus Two Fellowship. As women arrived they were greeted with food and friendship. Wanda Robinson and Nancy Lawrence were the bookends of our evening. Wanda opened the evening by speaking on “Expectations and Preferences”. Eight prudent women shared their wisdom on several topics during workshops. We were given the opportunity to choose two workshops to attend. The topics of the workshops ranged from “Budget Decorating & Repurposing”, "How to Set Reasonable Goals to Make the Most of Your Time”, “Chores for Children”, “Financial Organization”, Using Technology to ‘Look Well to the Ways of Your Household’, “True Home Economics: Creating a Biblical Work Ethic in Your Home”, “Tips and Tools for Cleaning Like a Pro”, and “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff when Showing Hospitality”. A booklet was compiled with the information from each workshop. If you missed the event you may check with the church office for the availability of a booklet. The evening came to a close with Nancy graciously sharing her testimony. To God be the Glory! To listen to Wanda’s talk and Nancy’s testimony and other previous Titus Two’s please click below.
Single Woman’s Ministry
The Single Woman’s Ministry meets on a monthly basis for the purpose of encouragement, companionship and fellowship. We look for opportunities to serve one another and grow in our walk with the Lord. This ministry is geared towards single women who are out of their college years and not yet part of our Anna’s group (older widows). This includes women who are single moms, divorced, never-married, married to unbelieving husbands, or temporary single (example-husband is deployed). If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please do not hesitate in contacting Alyssa Stanley or the church office.
Once a year, usually in the Fall, the ladies of Believer’s Fellowship have a Women’s Luncheon. The luncheon is opened up to all women in the church as well as their guests.
On September 30th the women of Believer’s Fellowship and their guests were privileged to attended the Women’s Fall Luncheon. The sanctuary was arrayed in lovely Fall decor and our ladies were served a delicious lunch. We listened to beautiful music that set our hearts and minds to worship and receive the teaching. Roberta Blakey blessed us by speaking on the topic “Farewell to Fretting” from Psalm 37:1-8. We were encouraged to walk by faith, not by sight, and to trust and rest in the Lord. You may listen to Roberta’s teaching and also hear from several women who shared with us via a video during the luncheon by going to the link below.
Seminars, Conferences & Retreats
The Women’s seminar was held on February 25, 2017. We had the pleasure of having Dr. Lisa La George, from the Master’s University, speak to us on the topic “Following in the Footsteps of Faith”. Dr. La George had us considered the footsteps of Daniel, an example of someone living the life he didn’t expect. We also looked at following in the footsteps of Jesus, the true vine, and abiding in the vine. In the final session we were introduced to faithful ordinary women, past and present, who inspired us by the extraordinary footsteps they left behind as they lived their lives for Christ.

Save the date: The 2018 Ladies Retreat will be held on March 23-24. Our guest speaker Betsy Harris will teach on the topic “Growing in Godliness”.
