We are women in love with Jesus and reflect that in our love for others, our sharing and service, our discipling, mentoring, comforting and cheerleading. We have lots of places to plug in, make new friends, deepen existing relationships and worship and serve the Lord. No matter what, we’re IN IT TOGETHER.

One Time Book Club

Join Women's Ministry for a One Time Book Club. We will read the same book and then gather just one time to discuss it with a small group of other women. We know these times are uncertain, but we will meet virtually if that is what's required. Let's continue to connect with people and meet new friends, even as we stay in our homes.

You can choose to order the book on your own or have us order it for you. If you order through us, we will make arrangements to have the book shipped to your house.

Take a look at our One Time Book Club Options:


Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds

by Jen Wilkin
7:00-8:30 pm in The Well
Discussion led by Allison White

We all know it’s important to study God’s Word.

But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture, this book will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.

Dream with Me

by Dr. John Perkins
7:00-8:30 pm in The Well
Discussion led by Katie Smylie

According to recent surveys and studies, race relations in the United States are the worst they've been since the 1990s, and many would argue that life for most minorities has not significantly improved since the civil rights era of the 1960s. For so many, the dream of true equality has dissolved into a reality of prejudice, fear, and violence as a way of life.

John M. Perkins has been there from the beginning. Raised by his sharecropping grandparents, Perkins fled Mississippi in 1947 after his brother was fatally shot by a police officer. He led voter registration efforts in 1964, worked for school desegregation in 1967, and was imprisoned and tortured in 1970. Through it all, he has remained determined to seek justice and reconciliation based in Christ's redemptive work.

Introverts in the Church: Finding our Place in an Extroverted Culture

by Adam McHugh
7:00-8:30 pm in The Well
Discussion led by Kristen Hartman and Kirsten Patterson

Introverts have gifts for the church and the world. But many churches tend to be extroverted places where introverts are marginalized. Some Christians end up feeling like it's not as faithful to be an introvert. Adam McHugh shows how introverts can live and minister in ways consistent with their personalities. He explains how introverts and extroverts process information and approach relationships differently and how introverts can practice Christian spirituality in ways that fit who they are. With practical illustrations from church and parachurch contexts, McHugh offers ways for introverts to serve, lead, worship, and even evangelize effectively. Introverts in the Church is essential reading for any introvert who has ever felt out of place, as well as for church leaders who want to make their churches more welcoming to introverts.

The Celebration of Discipline 

by Richard Foster
7:00-8:30 pm in The Well
Discussion led by Jenni Key

Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found.

Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration bring us nearer to one another and to God.

Abortion Recovery Class

You might think you will never get over your abortion. You may even think you should feel the regret, shame, and loneliness of this decision made recently or long ago.

That is just not true.

You deserve to find healing and forgiveness in a nonjudgmental and caring environment. We understand and want to help you become the woman or man you were meant to be, free and thriving.

Class fee is covered by Fullerton Free.

This 10-week class helps women and men (in separate classes) emotionally and spiritually process their struggles following an abortion. With a small class size and compassionate support, you will find the courage to face the pain of a previous abortion or abortions, no matter how many years it’s been.

Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life? Sometimes we need the reminder that life is meant to be lived to the full. That it is okay to enjoy ourselves, to let our hair down, to worry less and to really suck the marrow out of life. Because as far as we can tell, this is exactly how God intended for us to live – fully and abundantly. Moms, this is our chance for a fresh start. Here’s to a year of living the full life. Full of fun, joy, refreshment, trust and rejuvenation. May we, together, live life TO THE FULL.

MOPS & MOMSnext are available to a wide range of moms. If you're a pregnant mom still waiting to meet your little one or if you're a mom to kindergarteners or those in elementary school, you're welcome here! New this year is our MOMSnext program which provides for those mamas who have ‘aged out’ of MOPS but still want to be part of this amazing community. MOMSnext will meet the second Track of our fall calendar.

Please email Shannon McWatters with questions or contact the Fullerton Free Church office at 714.257.4317.
