God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. The good news of Jesus remains unchanged by any circumstance. How we worship, learn and fellowship will look different in this season than it has ever looked before, but we are determined to keep our eyes on Jesus. As we invite the Spirit to grow us like flowers in the desert, we are eager to see the ways God will transform our lives and communities. It will be stretching and even uncomfortable at times, but we’re hoping you’ll join us—and invite a friend!—as we pursue relationship with God and one another this year.

Whether you pop in for a One Time Book Club or join a year-long Bible Study, our groups and events are open for newcomers and ‘veterans’ alike. If you have questions or would like help deciding what group is right for you, we are happy to help.

Women's Ministry Night of Worship

Wednesday, March 31 7:00 pm

Gather for worship and prayer with women of different ages and seasons. We come from different places, but we focus our love and attention on the same wonderful God.

Details coming soon. No registration necessary.

One Time Book Club

Join us in reading a book and meeting just one time to discuss the book and fellowship with other women. Register online and pick up your book at the church office or we can mail it to you. Just indicate your preference on the registration form.

All groups will meet outside on the church campus, but will also have a Zoom call live for anyone who would rather stay home for the discussion. More information will be released closer to the date of the event. Email with questions.

A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows through Loss

Saturday, February 27 9:00 am
By Jerry Sittser

With vulnerability and honesty, Jerry Sittser walks through his own grief and loss to show that new life is possible--one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know the grace that transforms it.


We Were the Lucky Ones

Saturday, April 17 9:00 am
By Georgia Hunter

Inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive—and to reunite—We Were the Lucky Ones is a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds.

An extraordinary, propulsive novel, We Were the Lucky Ones demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment, the human spirit can endure and even thrive.


Bible Studies

Women’s Ministry groups will be studying the book of Genesis together during 2020-2021. We will discover how God created the world and delve into stories about the ways God walks with men and women just like us. We will be united in purpose to be transformed by the study of God’s Word. Our studies will begin the year meeting virtually.*

Choose how you study by curriculum, time of day or day of the week. If you would like to join us in the study of Genesis, but would rather not join one of our groups, please feel free to follow along with the teaching (see Pursuit Audio Archive on our website) and purchase a book.

*Because our studies and groups are beginning virtually this semester, childcare will not be available.

Begins January 28

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!

This fall, we are unable to offer childcare. In order to give more moms a chance to attend, our meetings will be held on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm.

Here are the dates for MOPS/MOMSnext:

Spring 2021 Dates

2/11 & 2/25

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.
