Women’s Enrichment Ministry

It is the vision of WEM to stimulate women’s hunger and thirst for God, deepening their relationship and their commitment to Jesus Christ, our Savior. Through Bible Study, Prayer, Service, and Special Events, women become equipped to use their God-given gifts and talents to make an impact on their world.

Bible Studies

 Choose from 3-5 Studies each 7 week Winter Session, 7 week Spring Session, and 12 week Fall Session held on Tuesday mornings, Tuesday evenings, and Wednesday evenings.  Choose from a variety of relevant, life applicable studies for today’s modern woman seeking God’s will for every area of her life including child rearing, marriage, and handling stress, to discovering how to deepen your walk with Christ.  Encouragement through fellowship is fostered during these weekly large and small group gatherings within our Bible Study Sessions.  You will be blessed by the life experiences of other women in class and surprised to learn that many other women are facing the same challenges, hurts, and issues that you may be facing.

First Thursday of Prayer

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12

Prayer, the greatest privilege of life and the greatest source of power here on earth.  Prayer, the language of the soul, the cry of our frail human hearts to the Almighty God of the universe Who is also our loving Heavenly Father.  What an awesome truth to grasp…that He would desire to have continual fellowship with us!  Join WEM the first Thursday of the month during Bible Study Sessions as we intercede for one another, our church, nation, and world.  This is a powerful hour of adoration, silent confession, thanksgiving, and supplication unto the One and Only Who is worthy of our focus.  You will leave encouraged, uplifted and in awe of the ways of God.

Special Events

WEM hosts a variety of special events open to our community:  Conferences, Retreats, Ladies’ Night Out, etc.  All feature locally to nationally known guest speakers who inspire, teach and encourage women in their walk with Christ.  Women come together for food, fun, and fellowship where they feel free to laugh and/or cry in a safe, loving, environment.

Whatever your season in life, you are most welcome to join hearts and hands with us as we grow in knowledge and love of our Savior, Jesus Christ and proclaim Him to those in ‘our Jerusalem’. Dedicated to God’s glory, may this ministry be a true reflection of Colossians 1:10 –

And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way:  bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.
