gsWomen

The desire of the Women’s Ministry Team at gracespring is to create the backdrop for women to grow in relationship with Christ and one another. We love seeing lives changed through the intervening power of the Holy Spirit. We love seeing women in authentic grace-filled relationships that disciple and encourage across generations. We have a spot for you amongst this imperfect but growing Christ-centered community. Please review all the opportunities we have available and plan to join us and get connected! Check out and join/follow gsWomen on Facebook where we post words of encouragement, last minute changes, prayer requests and updates!  We look forward to getting to know you!

Women’s Studies

Just Open the Door: A Study of Biblical Hospitality by Jen Schmidt

In these challenging times, God does not call us to a life of solitude, but to an abundant life as we pour out the love and grace we have in Christ to those around us. This study will offer us a simple yet radical life–giving vehicle to welcome others wherever you are and point them to the fullness of life in Christ.  The world is looking for hope and a future.

Come join us “in person” or via ZOOM as we encourage one another to BE the church in times like these, showing what true biblical hospitality looks like. Through our obedience in Christ, we can have a mighty impact on our community!   You will be blessed as you B.L.E.S.S. others.

We meet the 2nd & 4th Thursdays between September and May from 6:30pm-8:30pm at gracespring Bible Church. Join us as Moms enjoy relaxation, learning, discussions and creative activities. We would love to have you come check us out.  Your first meeting is free.  If you decide to register there is a $31.95 MOPS International registration fee that goes directly to MOPS international.  In addition to the MOPS International fee our local chapter collects dues in September to cover our local expenses of food supplies, speaker fees, and crafts supplies.  Our local dues are determined at the beginning of each semester.  We also have scholarships available as we don’t want money to keep anyone from being able to enjoy the MOPS experience. Please contact our Finance Coordinator, Amanda Ulman, for information regarding scholarships at mopsgracespring@gmail.com.

Registration for our 2020-2021 season is now CLOSED. You can reach our MOPS Coordinators at mopsgracespring@gmail.com with any questions.

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.

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”)

“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.
