"That every woman knows Christ personally and be committed to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community and throughout the world."
The women's leadership team coordinates women’s ministry at Heartland with this purpose in mind. This ministry includes:
Spiritual Growth: Women’s Bible studies, prayer groups, mentoring and discipleship--areas which help us as women grow in our faith--are overseen. At least two different women’s Bible studies are offered each fall and spring. Both provide childcare.
We would love to answer any questions you may have and help get you connected with other women at Heartland.
Women's Bible Studies - Winter/Spring 2020
Starting January 15th
Revelation—Let the One Who Is Thirsty Come - by Sarah Ivill.
The book of Revelation paints a breathtaking, majestic picture of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ's coming again to complete God's plan of judgment and salvation. This annotated, expository Bible study provides Old Testament backgrounds, commentary, and personal exhortations-distinguishing it from other Bible study guides. We are looking forward to studying this book both during the fall and winter/spring sessions. It is a yearlong study. Janet Malcom will once again be teaching and bringing us further understanding of our study. We will also have time for group discussion and small group prayer.
WHEN: Wednesday mornings, starting January 15th - 9:00 a.m. -11:15 a.m.
WHERE: Heartland Community Gathering Area.
Childcare provided at a minimal cost. Please make a reservation for your child(ren) with Alicia Kratz. Books for this study are available for $10. To get your book or for any further questions, please contact Vicki Granberry. We hope you will plan to join us in this great study.
Better - Jen Wilkin's study on Hebrews-. In this 10-session, verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God "provided something better for us" in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40).Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.
There is some homework and child care can be made available but please let Kathy know ASAP. The cost of the book is $15 and needs to be ordered by January 8th.
WHEN: Wednesday mornings, starting January 15 from 9:15 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: Kathy Morris' home
Evening Women's Bible Study
Contentment - by Melissa Kruger
We will be continuing through our study on contintment.
It can be hard to be content. Our culture encourages us to covet and consume in ways that are contrary to biblical teaching. In Contentment, Melissa Kruger defines what biblical contentment is and what it means for the Christian life. She helps Christians recognize how the cultivation of contentment is fundamentally rooted in understanding and resting in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In Him, we find ultimate contentment.
WHEN: Every other Thursday from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: We meet in the home of Whitney Goodrich
Communications: ministry related news relevant to the church body is communicated through the website, bulletin, monthly newsletter, weekly enews, bulletin boards, Facebook, and announcements, to keep our members better connected and informed.
Conference & Retreat: Two special weekends of excellent Biblical teaching, meaningful worship, and sweet fellowship with our sisters and our God are planned each year. In the fall, the retreat is focused on restful reflection, testimonies, and fellowship. For the conference in the spring, a speaker is usually brought in for more focused teaching time.
For more information contact Kristin Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fellowship: At least twice each year, ladies’ gatherings are planned to encourage fellowship, fun, and inspiration. These are for Heartland women and their friends outside the church. Past fellowships have included book reviews, tea time, testimonies, music presentations, Bible study previews, biography night, etc.
Hostess: The use of the church kitchen is coordinated for events such as showers, funeral dinners, receptions, Presbytery, and Pot Providence, as well as providing access to the Events Storage Room by request. Many volunteer opportunities are available.
Outreach: Outreach opportunities are organized for Heartland to serve the community and our neighborhood school, Clark Elementary. Tutoring, classroom assistants, faculty lunches, game days, backpack filling, coat donations, Thanksgiving baskets, etc. are all great service opportunities.
Service & Care: Short-term needs in the church are met by organizing meals and childcare. Bridal and baby showers are overseen as well.
Young Mom's Events: Throughout the year our women also plan various events to promote friendship and fellowship among our new and young moms as well. We have had zoo days, Valentine's day parties, and various other events as well.
