We desire to provide opportunities for women to encourage and support one another toward personal, spiritual and relational wholeness.

Opportunities to Connect 

Prayer Renewal Retreat

Our annual women's prayer renewal retreat is held at the DreamGiver’s Inn in Newberg each January. This is a weekend away in a place where Peace and Rest reside. Both guided and personal times of prayer and worship are included. We hope you can join us in 2018.


"To Retreat" means to leave our normally occupied positions and GO to a place of safety, quiet and seclusion. By going to a retreat, we physically remove ourselves from life's distractions, the demands of people in order to make space for God. Even Jesus recognized the value and need to get away. Mark 1:35 Very early in the morning Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place where He prayed. The Women's Ministry Team provides an annual "Retreat" in the fall where women come to be refreshed, inspired, spend time with God and to each other. Check back for details.

Ignite 2017

How do we find courage in a world that bombards us with countless reasons to be afraid? Let’s join together in attending the city-wide Ignite conference for women entitled “Courage – A Heart Released” on Saturday, March 4 to find out.

We will be encouraged as we experience together inspiring worship, a relevant keynote speaker, and many workshops on how to have courage in many life situations like: parenting in a frightening world; finding courage to forgive; courage to live by your convictions; courage in messy relationships; and many more. Sign up today in the lobby or online. Cost is $25 if we have more than 10 attend in our group registered before February 26. Let’s carpool and go as a group! Register in the lobby today! Questions? Contact .

Small Groups

Come and connect with other women as we begin a six-week book study by Beth Moore called Living Free: Learning to Pray God’s Word. We will learn the practice of “breathing Scripture” by praying God’s Word and letting Him transform our hearts and minds. Following this study, we will move in to a six-week study in the book of Ruth on how to engage in relationships that are life giving.

The morning group began Tuesday, January 10, and meets from 9:30 to 11:30am. The evening group began Tuesday, January 24, and meets from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Childcare is available in the morning group only. Cost is $40 for the morning group and $25 for the evening group. 

Find out more by contacting Judy Pinkerton for the morning group or Crystal Livingston for the evening group.
