Women's Ministry at Valley Bible Church
The Mission of Women's ministries at Valley Bible Church is to "present every woman complete in Christ," for His glory and "for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, to the building up of the body of Christ." (Colossians 1:29, Ephesians 4:12)
Our desire is to bring honor and glory to God through:
To encourage women to a lifestyle of devotion and joyful obedience to Christ as Savior and Lord as they love Him, walk in the power of His Holy Spirit and are transformed by the power of His Word into His likeness.
To provide opportunities for women to develop new friendships and strengthen existing ones.
To provide opportunities to come alongside a woman to model, equip, and train through lifestyle, life experiences and scripture.
To present opportunities in leadership, Bible studies, mentoring, evangelism and the spiritual disciplines.
Women's ministry accomplishes these goals and objectives through weekly Bible studies, mentoring relationships, and special gatherings and events.
Bible Studies and Discipleship Groups
- Bible studies are designed to help women grow together in their intimacy with God through the study of His Word, praying, sharing and encouraging one another in community. Each study is composed of women from all ages and stages of life. All Women’s Discipleship Groups this Fall 2016 will be studying the books of Obadiah and Jonah. To find out when these women's groups meet and how to get involved, please contact the church office.
Modeled after Titus 2:3-5 "Older women train the younger women"; One on one relationships make for a special relationship for support, encouragement, accountability, prayer, and fun times. If you would be interested in a mentoring relationship please contact anyone on the Women’s ministry team or the church office for more information.
Special Gatherings and Events
Special events, such as social events, retreats, and service projects are offered throughout the year. These events provide fellowship, fun, service, and spiritual growth for our women. These gatherings are also ideal for inviting friends.
The Women's Fall Retreat this year will be held at Singing Hills, Plainfield, NH - Friday evening October 14 through Saturday evening October 15, 2016. The theme of the weekend is "Loving God, Loving People." For more information please contact a member of the Women's Ministry Team or the church office for more information.
