Women's Ministry

Our desire is to help equip and encourage women in their walk with God.   Our Bible studies are specific to Historic Reformed Theology (true Christian doctrine from the reformation) and the Doctrines of Grace.  

Upcoming Women's Events for 2024:

Our Ladies Spring Tea is April 20, 2024 at Priscilla's home.
Bring your favorite dish, sweet or savory (not required).
Dress is casual.
This is a special time for fellowship/catching up with old friends and meeting new while eating the most delicious food and of course coffee with many flavors of tea served in beautiful tea cups.  We are hoping and praying to see some new faces this year!

Invitations are in the church on the back table and in the Edu Bldg.  Please see Tammy for more information.


Our next study on the Word of God will be the book of Daniel from the Knowing the Bible series and will start in January 2024. 
Our Bible study meetings are held at the church in the education building on Saturday mornings at 10 am. Although we are currently half way through this study, it's not too late to come.

We just concluded another exciting new Bible Study called Christianity and Liberalism based on J. Gresham Machen's book written 100 years ago this year and as relevant (or more) today as it was then.  

We  concluded our study of the Word of God studying through the Book of "Jeremiah" from the "Knowing the Bible" series by J.I. Packer and before this we studied the Book of Isaiah.  

The Knowing the Bible series is a new resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. Each 12-week study leads participants through one book of the Bible and is made up of four basic components: (1) Reflection questions designed to help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlighting the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” showing how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identifying how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from a wide array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on each and every page of the Bible.


Our Women's Retreat - October 18 - 19, 2024 at Riverbend Retreat Center - Glen Rose, Tx
This is a wonderful opportunity to renew your mind by spending time with the Lord in beautiful setting.  Our Prayer Overnight Retreat is a time of learning more about prayer and Scriptural meditation as well as fellowship and worship through music.  There will be a group devotional followed by alone time for prayer in God's beautiful creation.  This is an opportunity to nurture old friendships and make new ones.  The retreat at the Riverbend Retreat Center is an incredible time of spending time in nature with God in prayer, and awesome fellowship (not just friendship but "fellowship" which is glorifying to God).  More information to be provided as we get closer to the date.  


We have a Ladies Christmas Tea every December usually the first or second Saturday.  Please check back for exact date and time as we get closer to December.                                                                                                ______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Women's Ministry Groups:

Women's Bible Study - Saturday mornings from 10-11:30 (See above for details on current study).

Women's Prayer Ministry - 1st Sunday of Every Month
The Prayer Ministry hosts the monthly time of women's prayer at the church and encourages prayer as a vital component in all areas of women's ministry.  We  pray over  our church, our families, our community, our schools and our country.  The prayer ministry meets the first Sunday of every month in the education building Sunday School classroom  immediately after the worship service.  We encourage all women to come and pray.  If all the women of WPC get together for  15 - 30 minutes one Sunday a month and pray,  God is listening!   If you would like to just come in and pray silently with others  that is encouraged as well.  This ministry is one of the most important of all our ministries.  Please see Paula Leeper for more details on this ministry. 

Mentoring Groups 
This ministry involves special interests and sharing those interests and talents with others.  God has blessed women with so many talents/gifts, such as scrapbooking, crafts, baking, cooking/culinary arts, sewing, table decorating, gift making,  quilting, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, needlepoint, extreme couponing, photography, painting (water color & oil), gardening, growing herbs/ veggies, etc.  If you are a woman who is willing to share your special interests/gifts with a group of women, please contact Tammy.   We are in need of someone to lead & organize this fun and exciting ministry.    

Meals Ministry
This ministry arranges and provides short-term meal needs, such as, new baby, illness, etc.  If a sister in Christ has to go to the hospital, this ministry can arrange to have meals delivered to her family while she's away from them.  If a death of a spouse occurs, this ministry can arrange to have meals delivered and use this time to minister.  This ministry ministers  to all our members in need of this ministry.   We are always in need of  volunteers willing to cook and deliver meals as the need arises.  Please contact  Pat Compton  for more details or if you have a need for meals.  

Visitation (Encourage)  Coordinator Ministry
This ministry will visit those in the hospital, keep track of all our women's birthdays, have other women sign the birthday cards and send out birthday cards to be delivered on or before their  birthday.  This ministry will reach out to visitors and new members, give them information about our WM and encourage them, as well as all women to become involved in the WPC Women's Ministry.  This ministry will work closely and assist the women's minister as needed and stay up to date on all the women's ministries' activities. There are great opportunities for this ministry to grow and develop.   We are currently in need of someone to lead this ministry.  For more information on this ministry please contact Tammy Heeren.


Ladies Tea
Our Ladies Tea is becoming increasingly popular!   We have our teas a few (3/4) times per year. We offer delicious food and of course delightful teas followed by wonderful fellowship and a special teaching/devotional from the Word of our Lord.   Join us for an incredible experience of Christian women fellowship.  It's so much fun and truly a blessing!  If you would like to host a Ladies Tea in your home, please contact Tammy Heeren.
