women's minstry

A mere glance at the checkout rack while waiting in line to buy groceries will show snapshots of society's view of women. Sadly, this also often comes with willing adherence by women. Add to these societal pressures of marriage or dating or kids or work and it becomes hard to discern among all the messages and busyness, what a woman is to be. 

Titus 2:3-5
gives one biblical vantage which is far different than that of the world: "Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored."

You're not going to find that on the supermarket rack and it may not be the stuff of award shows. But through our women's ministry we aim to bring honor to God, and in doing so, see love and purity and joy spill over into all aspects of life. 

Ladies' bible studies

Sunday mornings, women meet together in a Sunday School class for teaching and building relationships.

During the week, women are invited to a group Bible study on Thursday mornings (September through May).  They seek to provide relevant teaching for women in diverse stages of life.

We often have a small group for women that meets Wednesday evenings here at The Chapel.

Women's retreat

Annually we seek to provide women the chance to come together and rejuvenate their spiritual lives. Vibrant teaching, joyful fellowship, and emotional renewal are paramount during this refreshing fall weekend.

The 2021 Fall Retreat will be October 8-10.  More details to come.


The women's ministry hosts Her Story/His Story events a couple times a year.  This is an opportunity to hear personal testimonies from Chapel women about God's work in their lives.  We also have light refreshments providing for a time to catch up with one another.  Check the calendar for the next Her Story/His Story or Women's Gathering.

MOPS - Mothers of preschoolers

MOPS - Mothers of Preschoolers meets the second Friday of every month (September-May) from 9:30 - 11:30 am. Being a mom isn't easy.  But sometimes it helps to learn from others who have gone through or are going through the same challenges in raising children.  For those mothers with children from birth to kindergarten, MOPS is a respite away from, but dedicated to, mothering.  The time features practical lessons, along with relationship-building, all geared toward raising up little ones "in the way they should go." 

Adjacent to MOPS is MOPS Kids, a program which teaches and cares for the children of the moms in the MOPS program. 

For years MOPS has been strengthening and refreshing women, always seeking to renew the joy of being a mom . . . even when it isn't easy!

Learn more about MOPS on their website or contact Dani Brown (573-576-1924) for information about our local group.
