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

We’d love to connect with you at WOW.   Join us during the school year on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and be encouraged, grow in faith and build relationships with other women! We begin with a large group program and conversation. We then move into smaller classes which provide an opportunity for women to connect in small groups each week throughout the semester and grow together. We wrap up each week at 11:30 a.m. Childcare provided.

“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)

WOW (F2022): Galatians Wednesday Morning Church
WOW (F2022): Galatians  
Leader: Helen Kennedy

Register: WOW Fall 2022 Registration

(In-Person) Join us for a study of Galatians. N.T. Wright, a beloved New Testament scholar, will guide us in the apostle Paul's writings to the early Christian church of the radical good news of the one true God who raised Jesus from the dead. In a world of widespread ethnic rivalry and divisiveness, Paul's corrective but encouraging message of the love of Jesus Christ was as relevant to the early church as it is to us today!

WOW (F2022): Kingdom Stewardship Wednesday Morning Church
WOW (F2022): Kingdom Stewardship  
Leader: Linda Hansell

Register: WOW Fall 2022 Registration

(In-Person) Kingdom stewardship affects every decision you make, not just deciding what you put in the offering plates. When we understand Biblically that we are managers and not owners of all we have been given, it affects how we act, how we think, decisions we make, and our response to using our time, talents and treasures for His glory. We will explore what this looks like in our everyday lives.

WOW (F2022): Living Life Backward Wednesday Morning Church
WOW (F2022): Living Life Backward  
Leader: Julie Morgan

Register: WOW Fall 2022 Registration

(In-Person) "Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher. . .all is vanity and a striving after wind." Ecclesiastes has a reputation as a hopeless, despairing book, and one would think so from the way the book we will be reading begins: "I am going to die. By the time you read these lines, I may even be dead." In Living Life Backward, David Gibson makes the case that "living in the light of your death will help you to live wisely and freely and generously." His book looks at how Ecclesiastes teaches us to do just that. Please join us for this challenging study.

WOW (F2022): The Work of the Holy Spirit Wednesday Evening Church
WOW (F2022): The Work of the Holy Spirit  
Leader: Nancy Nasrallah

Register: WOW Fall 2022 Registration

(Hybrid, 7:30pm - 9:00pm) While the purpose of the Holy Spirit is to transform us (and our communities) into what God originally envisioned when He created us, it is our responsibility to listen to the Spirit, to follow, and to allow ourselves to be transformed, even seek transformation! We will learn about the Holy Spirit through Scripture, John Stott's teaching, and practice of a few spiritual disciplines to prepare ourselves to better hear the Spirit speaking and leading us. *Hybrid: meet once or twice a month at church with online option. In person for opening & closing WOW dates.
