Women's Studies

How we view God affects how we live on a daily basis.

Our distorted view of God is at the root of all of our problems.  The way back, the path of hope, starts with knowing God for who He really is.  Join us for an 8 week study as Chip Ingram leads us in an in-depth look at seven attributes of God, and learn to see Him in a whole new light.  Learning to see God as He longs to be seen will change the way you think about God, yourself and others.

Come join us in our small womens’ groups, as we encourage one another through God’s Word, prayer, relationships and daily living. The weekly assignments are light this semester!

*This study may require access to Right Now Media, so please check the box in registration if you do not currently have access and we will email you the link. Look forward to seeing you!

If you could tell your younger self anything that would encourage, teach, or counsel, what would it be? What loving words of wisdom would you impart? What story of God’s goodness would you share? In 2021 we will be providing many opportunities for you to learn, to share and to give God glory for all he has done, and in doing so both be encouraged and be an encouragement to a sister in Christ!

Friends, Sisters, 2020 was hard. I wish as we launch this New Year I could sit across a table and have cup of tea with each of you to share stories, to grieve and to celebrate. I wish I could look you each in the eye and encourage you – pray with you – help you hold onto hope – direct you to scripture that would soothe your soul and lighten your load. Because that’s just not practical in today’s world, we have created an opportunity for the next best thing:
our FIRST EVER, 100% virtual, Women’s Ministry, Kickoff Celebration!

THIS SUNDAY is your LAST DAY to pick up your FREE gsWOMEN’s event celebration To-Go Kit! So be sure to stop by the Women’s kiosk in the concourse to grab one.

On Friday, January 22nd, from 6:30pm – 8:00pm we invite you to join us as we encourage, laugh, pray, dream, worship and celebrate together! We are excited to offer this event online so that EVERYONE can participate, and we believe we have plans that will make this one of our best events yet! We have created free “Celebration-to-go-Kits” complete with some goodies and all the print materials you will need to participate. We’ll have virtual small group discussions, round table stories and thought-provoking tools to help you process, dream and plan. We’ll be unveiling the 2021 THEME for Women’s Ministry and helping you look forward with anticipation and HOPE for the coming year! Please, hear our heartfelt desire to encourage and bless you. Please join us for our 2021 Women’s Ministry Kickoff Celebration! REGISTER today and be part of something great in 2021!

Sincerely,

Sherry Crossley, Women’s Ministry Coordinator, and the entire Women’s Ministry Team

Seasoned Sisters

Women 50 years & older

No one should ever come to church and have the heaviness of loneliness or a sense of not belonging. Sister, if you are 50+ years old, we have a place at the table for you. We meet the second Saturday of every month at 9:00 am at Michelle’s Restaurant, 4010 Gull Road, Kalamazoo. (next to “Frosty Boy”) *Location may change pending COVID-19 Dining restrictions. Please contact us for the most recent information.

“Seasoned Sisters” isn’t just about eating breakfast. We are a community group… we are the church… we are the hands and feet of Jesus… we are the hope and encouragement… whatever your need, trial, or journey. With the combined years of experience and wisdom, you will find a fellow traveler. You do not have to walk your road alone.  We are here to welcome you and fold you into the body of sisters.  Over the years we, as a group of seasoned ladies, have provided and served in several ways, including a mission project that has provided clean water for life for hundreds of people in five different countries.  Come and be a part of this dynamic group of “Seasoned Sisters!”  You can contact Sandy Skartsiaris at 269-720-9916 for information.

Women’s Worship & Prayer Night

The 4th Friday of the month

If you’ve joined us for one of our recent retreats, you KNOW the powerful times of praise and worship we have enjoyed together as women.  The convergence of many voices lifted in praise is a beautiful sound and a “sweet aroma” to the Lord. Join us the 4th Friday of each month at gracespring (in the gsKidz Theater) as we lift high the name of Jesus and spend time in prayer together.
