"There is not one way to be a woman;
there is not one way to do women's ministry.
There is only loving and serving God,
doing life together in the full expression of our unique selves."

We welcome all women in every season of life!
We have more to offer than craft nights. Our church is full of women of leadership,
wisdom, counsel, and teaching. Their whole lives are an offering and
sometimes, the
best way to properly celebrate that offering is with watercolor paints and dark
chocolate...and that's ok too!

Women in the Bible aren't shy or retiring; they're fierce and funny and
demanding and relevant to 21st-century people.

Women in the Bible-some of their names we know, others we've only heard, and
other are tragically unnamed.

Join us as we introduce these women and invite us to see them not as players
in a man's story-as victims or tempters-nor as morality archetypes, but as
fierce foremothers of the faith.

These women's stories are messy, challenging, and beautiful. When we read
their stories, we can see not only their particular, fearsome lives but also our
own.

Our study is based on the book FIERCE Women of the Bible and their stories of Violence, Mercy, Bravery, Wisdom,
Compassion, Sex and Salvation by Alice O'Connor.
