WOMEN'S MINISTRIES

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.

The Bait of Satan:

Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense
by John Bevere

Wednesday, October 16

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

The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God—offense. This trap restrains countless Christians, severs relationship, and widens the gulfs between us. Jesus said, “It is impossible that no offenses should come” (Luke 17:1). Although you will encounter offense, you can choose how you will react.

Half the Church:

Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women
by Carolyn Custis James

Wednesday, October 23

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

Women make up at least half the population of the world and the church, but are they fully using their God-given gifts for His kingdom? Carolyn Custis James' Half the Church is a charge to broaden our view of women's vital participation and value in the global Body of Christ and embrace God's vision for kingdom work in which no woman—young or old, married or single, first world or third world—is left behind

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.

MOPS & MOMSnext

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.

If you have any additional questions or issues along the way, please email Kristen Jones [MOPS] or  Sarah Ferraro [MOMSnext] and we will work to find a solution as fast as we can.

Bite Size

Bite Size is intergenerational groups of 10-12 women who meet in homes for five weeks for friendship and connection. Not a Bible study or prayer group or accountability group—although all those things might happen—but rather a time to just relax together and make some new friends.

Watch the website or e-news for the 2020 start date.
