Women's Ministries

Our goal is to support GracePoint’s mission of “Reaching Out While Transforming Within for the Glory of God” by providing opportunities to mature and build women’s faith.

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
~ Hebrews 10:24-25

A variety of activities are offered to  develop servant leaders through teaching, companionship and mentorship, encouragement, prayer, service and outreach with the goal for all women to become complete in Christ.  Please sign up at the Events Desk, choose the appropriate online registration link, or send an email or call the appropriate contact listed below.

When we hear the name Gideon, we imagine his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. Gideon's story is so much bigger than that. In our new study – by Priscilla Shirer – we see a God who loves his people and works in and through them in spite of their weakness. He can do the same with you!
