Tapestry: Women’s Ministry

Weaving our lives together in Christ

abide

I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath. – Psalm 116

Just as different threads are woven together to form a beautiful picture, Tapestry’s goal is to create something vibrant and colorful as we weave our lives together. Our first threads come in studying the Word and growing in the knowledge of God. The tapestry grows as we seek God’s heart through weekly Bible studies and special events.

Our threads are all different—praise God! We would love for you to join us, no matter where you are in your faith journey, as we weave our lives together in Him.

God of Justice

by International Justice Mission
The God of the Bible is a God of justice, and he wants those who love him to understand and apply this aspect of his goodness. This study will focus on the concept of biblical justice from Genesis to Revelation using a discussion-based curriculum. Join us as we explore scripture to see what God has to say about the topic of justice, restoration and reconciliation for the vulnerable.

Leaders: Margaret Blades and Jenny Chantz

Grief Share

Grief Share allows people to talk about the pain of losing a loved one. Through videos, discussion and brief homework, our goal is to promote healing as we provide a safe space to share the pain we have in common.

Leaders: Alana Gregg, Carol Gillespie, and Dorothy Keisling

James: Faith in Action

A very practical study showing us how to live out our faith in everyday life.

Philippians, Colossians, Philemon

A fresh presentation of Jesus Christ, Christian living and relationships.

Bible Journaling

Bible journaling is a creative way to respond to things you are learning through the scriptures.  Using different lettering techniques, art supplies and simple decorating ideas, you will be able to meditate on the truths of God’s Word in a deeper way.  To give focus and direction to the weekly Scripture reading we will use Francis Chan’s Read Scripture app and podcast series.

Leaders: Amy Ransom, Char Serang, Tamara Ashley, and Emily Peart

God Are You There, Do You Care, Do You Know About Me? 

Join us for a Precept inductive study on the book of John. Participants will journey step by step, verse by verse, with our marvelous Lord Jesus as we look through God’s eyes of love, personally applying God’s transforming truth to our own lives for today.

David: Seeking a Heart Like His

Leaders: Joyce Brown and Beth Cinberg

Breathe 

by Priscilla Shirer (Fall)
We are in bondage to busyness, constantly striving to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. If you are weary and worn, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

The Armor of God

by Priscilla Shirer (Spring)
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you; unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. The enemy seeks to wreak havoc on the things that matter to you.  Join us as we are challenged to suit up, stand firm and secure victory. DVD/workbook study.

Leaders: Bev Rutledge and Sue Remmey

Sermon on the Mount

by Jen Wilkin (Fall)
What does it mean to be a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven?  The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: how does a disciple think, speak and act?

Discerning the Voice of God

by Priscilla Shirer (Spring)
Experience a deeper relationship with God as you strengthen your daily walk with him and learn through practical application how to know and understand what you hear from God in his Word. DVD/workbook study.

Who Is Jesus?

by Stonecroft (Fall)

What Is God Like? 

by Stonecroft (Spring)

God wants you to know him and that he pursues a relationship with you. Each lesson includes helpful, open-ended questions.

Leader: Sharon Lauzus

Women of the Word

by Jen Wilkin (Fall)
Ever resolve to do more Bible study but weeks, or even a few days later you run out of time, your kids get sick, or you are bored? Your good intentions evaporate.  How do you overcome frustration and keep your focus and passion when reading the Bible?  This book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

Unglued

by Lisa TerKeurst (Spring)
What do you do with your raw emotions?  Do you stuff, explode or take it out on family, coworkers or friends?  Can you really get your emotions to work for you instead of against you?  In this study, Lisa TerKeurst helps us with honest personal experiences and biblical teaching so that we may be equipped to know with confidence how to resolve conflict, find peace in relationships and identify what type of reactors we are. DVD/workbook study.

Leaders: Judy Hendrickson and Neha Parekh

David: Seeking a Heart Like His

by Beth Moore 
Join us for a Beth Moore study on the life of David.  Through David’s trials, temptations and failures, we will learn how God’s grace enables us to cope with our own life issues.   God never gave up on David AND he doesn’t give up on us either! DVD/workbook study.
