The objective of the Women of Excellence Ministry is to encourage women to grow more deeply in their walk with Jesus Christ, to help them connect with other women, and to empower them to seek and fulfill their God-given purposes in life.  We offer various ministries and events to inspire them towards spiritual maturity.  There are several Bible study classes throughout the year (except during the summer months) for women of all ages, including Mom2Mom groups. In addition to the Bible study classes, the Women of Excellence has three special events yearly: a Mother’s Day Brunch, a Women of Excellence Fall Conference, and our women’s Christmas banquet “One Glorious Night.”

WINTER WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY CLASSES

MONDAYS (STARTING JANUARY 26TH 6:30PM - 8:30PM)

BREATHE: MAKING ROOM FOR THE SABBATH - PRISCILLA SHIER

Facilitator:  Gail Sullivan              
Room:  220    
Cost:  $15                 
Childcare: Yes

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites' mindset. He didn't just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it.  5 WEEKS DVD


THE POWER OF KNOWING GOD - KAY ARTHUR

Room:  202

REALLY BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE - LIZ CURTIS HIGGS

Facilitator:  Renee' Basel                 
Room:  250    
Cost:  $12     
Childcare: Yes

In Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Higgs reveals the power of God's sovereignty in the lives of other shady ladies known by reputation but rarely studied in depth: Bathsheba, the bathing beauty; Jael, the tent-peg-toting warrior princess; Herodias, the horrible beheader; Tamar, the widow and not-so-timid temptress; Athaliah, the deadly daughter of Jezebel. Along with these are three ancient women whose names we don't know: the ashamed Adulteress, the bewitching Medium of En Dor, and the desperate Bleeding Woman. The eye-opening stories of these eight "Really Bad" women demonstrate one truly life-changing concept---the sovereign power of God to rule our hearts and lives with grace, compassion, and hope.  8 WEEKS NO DVD
