Learn. Fellowship. Serve.


Women’s Connection is a weekly event for women to connect with the Lord and each other. We are excited to dive into 2 Corinthians 1-7 together. We will spend time in a large group setting (on Zoom) and in small groups at various times throughout the week (in person and online). 


We will be meeting Thursdays at 9:30am for about 20 minutes on zoom so we can connect as a large group, and hear a short teaching. The teachings will be recorded and available to small groups that cannot attend Thursday Mornings. Contact [email protected] to get the link to the recordings. JOIN MEETING


As we kick off the year together we will be working to place everyone in groups and finalize details. Many groups have needed to prayerfully consider meeting in person or online. As always with Women’s Connection, expect that there will be some changes in small groups in the first few weeks. If you haven’t already, please register below to be sure you are placed in a group (including those returning from last year). Most groups will meet online, some a mix of online and in-person, and potentially one group that will meet exclusively in person (weather permitting). REGISTER HERE


For the fall, we will be diving into 2 Corinthians 1-7 together. As we approach the scriptures, my prayer is that we spend more time in the text itself, deepening our love for God’s word. Most groups won’t be using a curriculum but instead will have some questions written by various leaders week of, with the encouragement to spend time in small groups (and individually) diving into the text more inductively.

If you don’t have time to dive in to the full passage in this season of life, spend time reflecting on the weekly verse, praying and pondering God’s wordsIntro to 2 Corinthians
