Women on Wednesdays is intentionally designed as a connection point for women into Small Groups. We believe that life transformation for women happens best in the context of an ongoing Small Group experience. Our desire is to create opportunities for you to connect to a Small Group or to resource your current Small Group experience.

WOMEN ON WEDNESDAYS (Fall 2021)

WOW will still look a little different this fall, but we have a variety of small group offerings that include Bible studies as well as book study options as we do our best to continue to make this a place for you to connect with other women and with God in a meaningful and safe way for you. Most offerings are Wednesday morning (one Wednesday evening) and a variety of online, in-person or combinations to choose from.  We hope you will be able to find an option that suits your needs and interests and that you will plan to join us this semester!

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases:  His mercies never come to an end:  they are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.”     Lamentations 3:22-23 (RSV)

Note:  We are unfortunately not able to offer child care this semester.  If you have questions, feel free to email the WOW Team at wow@centralpc.org.

Leader: Julie Morgan

Register: WOW Fall 2021 Registration

(In-Person|Online) This fall, we will be studying 1 Timothy, which is one of the pastoral letters in which Paul exhorts Timothy to deal with false teachers in the church at Ephesus and gives advice on the issues of church life on which Timothy needs guidance and encouragement. The main theme of the letter is that the gospel leads to practical, visible change in the lives of those who believe it. Prepare to be challenged to live out in tangible ways the ethical implications of the gospel.

WOW (F2021): Going Deeper  
Leader: Dottie Shedwick

Register: WOW Fall 2021 Registration

(Online) Going Deeper is an opportunity to discuss and reflect on the scripture lesson from the previous Sunday. Not only do we discuss the text, but how it applies to our daily lives. The text and thought questions are provided to group members before worship so the ladies can listen to what God is teaching. This enables us to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit so we can grow closer to God and each other. (Bible)

WOW (F2021): Jesus: Tend My Sheep  (Full Group)
Leader: Nancy Nasrallah

Register: WOW Fall 2021 Registration

(EVENING, Online) We've been told to love and care for one another, our fellow sheep, but how do we do that? From listening to a human shepherd and a church pastor, and above all seeing our own Good Shepherd caring for us, we will be challenged to look at our fellow humans with humility, and learn how to speak words of grace to strengthen, encourage, and love them a little closer to resting in those lush and safe Green Pastures.

WOW (F2021): Jesus: The God Who Knows Wednesday Morning Church
WOW (F2021): Jesus: The God Who Knows  
Leader: Sue Hula

Register: WOW Fall 2021 Registration

(In-Person|Online) Using two of Max Lucado's video Bible studies beginning with Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name, we will get to know God by taking a closer look at Jesus' humanity. We'll learn more about the God who formed the universe and, at the same time, knows your personal struggles because he went through the same things. Because of Bethlehem, God knows what it's like to be human. By learning more about the person Jesus was and is, we will understand more clearly the people we were created to be.

Leader: Linda Hansell

(Online) Tish Warren expounds on the compline prayer by breaking down each phrase and amplifies what it has meant to her, especially after a season of doubt and loss in her own life. We will explore prayer in some new ways. Compline prayer: Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
