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.

It all looks different. We all feel different. Yet, we can still gather—one way or another—to spur each other on, to grow as the body of Christ and to pursue Jesus. Join us this summer as we pray, study and connect with each other and with God. We can’t wait to see your faces!

Women’s Summer Bible Study

July 9, 16, 23, 30

Thursday Nights via Zoom
7-8:30 p.m.


Has it been challenging to study God’s Word apart from your communities? Has the absence of larger gatherings shown your need for a community to pray and study with? Are you a person who feels shaky without the structure of a group Bible study?

During the month of July, we will gather virtually to open up the book of Lamentations with the goal of helping you develop new skills and methods for your personal study of the Scriptures. As we read through and discuss Lamentations, we will hear from some of our own women’s ministry teachers on methods that help you get the most out of reading the Bible. There will be no homework other than reading the book of Lamentations. Our topics will include identifying themes, word study, searching for context and praying through Scripture. We trust God will use this to equip you for study and for sharing what you are learning with others.

For zoom links and additional information, please register or contact

Small Groups for discussion will be offered, but are optional.

This year, we want to tell you two things that will change your life if you believe them. First, you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Second, because you are fearfully and wonderfully made, you have work to do; meaningful work that was built into your DNA before you were born. Work that you were made for. Sometimes, we believe that our motherhood is a constraint that limits what we can do in this life. We want to remind you that motherhood isn’t a constraint – it’s a catalyst.

This is the year we arise as mothers to awaken a weary and sleeping world. The year to accept and believe that God will fulfill his promises to you, and to embrace your motherhood as a catalyst to his plans and promises for you.

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!

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

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:

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.
