Ladies, do you find yourself overwhelmed at times with the duties of life? Whether you are a young mom caring for children, a single woman dealing with the demands of a career, a retired lady who finds herself caring for grandchildren, or anywhere in between, our ladies ministry offers hope along your path of life. HOPE (Haven of Profitable Edification) is our women's ministry centered around encouragement and edification through Bible studies, activities, prayer meetings, craft nights, showers, and more. We want women to grow in the HOPE God intends for your life. Do you need HOPE? View our calendar to the left, and join us for times of profitable edification!
Ladies Bible Studies
Sundays: Designed to help women grow in our understanding of God’s love, His Word, and each other, our Ladies Bible study meets every Sunday with two options available. Our morning study meets at 9:15 during the Sunday School hour. Do you need an evening study? We offer the same study again at 5:00 p.m. in room 120. Come to these warm studies, often with healthy, tasty treats! Ladies of all ages and stages of life participate; we delight to share each other’s burdens. Will you come join us?
Would you like to pray for your school children? Your spouse? A job need? Health issues? Join us on the first Wednesday of each month for women’s prayer time. We meet in Room 201, and childcare is provided.
Take a break with a cup of tea or coffee at our quarterly HOPE Coffee Fellowships. Join in the lighthearted fellowships at the Panera Bread near Ikea in Bolingbrook. See calendar to the left for specific dates.
Activities & Retreats
Fondue night, Teddy Bear Breakfast, craft night, gym night and ministry to women’s shelters – these are just some of the activities that HOPE has offered women. We have collected food and personal items for women’s shelters and sung Christmas carols to these precious women. We also host women’s retreats; the HOPE leadership team plans these retreats held at local resorts to center around a theme in God’s Word and provide great food and fellowship. Will you come away with us to an activity or retreat to know God better? Learn more about our 2016 Ladies Retreat.
Brides-to-be and babies-to-see provide much time to shower a woman with gifts or provide for special needs. We celebrate these momentous occasions with delicious food and heartfelt fellowship. What a blessed HOPE we can be to those in any stage of life, but especially those with new beginnings.
