Special Events

Throughout the year, Women’s Ministry provides various special events and weekend retreats.

"Stronger" WOMEN'S CONFERENCE

So many of us feel under attack, beaten down, and overwhelmed.  Even in our day to day life we can struggle with feeling discouraged, exhausted, or “less than”.  And yet, time after time, the Bible gives us hope and promises strength to face whatever comes our way. 

Join us for a dynamic, two day conference with nationally renowned speaker and songwriter Tammy Trent.  She will inspire you with her powerful testimony and encouraging message. 

Abhineeta Matney from CICM and Skipping Stone will also be speaking and sharing her testimony, as well as shedding light on the plight of women in India. 

The worship will be powerful, the message will be encouraging, and you will leave with a renewed strength in the Lord!  Come and learn how to be a woman clothed in strength and dignity!

Hosted at Mount Pleasant Christian Church

Bible Studies

Mount Pleasant Women’s Ministry puts a huge emphasis on the importance of daily bible study.  Various bible studies are offered throughout the year, and provide great ways to get into the Word, meet new people, and have insightful, meaningful small group conversation.  

Winter/Spring Bible Studies 2017

Sunday 

Experiencing God
Lori Braun
Start Date:  January 15, 10am
Room 202

Do you feel like there has to be more to the relationship with God than you are experiencing but just don't know how to get there? Do you want to know God in a more personal, intimate way? Knowing God does not come through a program, a study, or a method. Knowing God comes through a relationship with a Person. This is an intimate love relationship with God. Through this relationship, God reveals Himself, His purposes, and His ways; and He invites you to join Him where He is already at work.

Join us as we strive to know God more and experience Him in every aspect of our lives.

Tuesday

Becoming a Woman of Prayer
Christy Brink
Start Date: January 17, 9:30-11:30am
Room 301/302
Childcare Provided 

Time and time again in the bible we are called to pray, and we see wonderful examples of prayer in the lives of the faithful.  And yet, many of us struggle with prayer.  We’re not sure where to start…we don’t really know how to pray…or we want to take our prayer lives to a deeper level and we’re just not sure how to get there.  This semester we will be studying the Word of God and what it says about prayer.   We will talk about what it means to be a woman of prayer, how prayer can transform our hearts and relationship with God, and how we can make prayer a greater priority in our lives.   The format will be slightly different from a “usual” bible study.  There will be guest speakers, a weekly, focused passage of scripture on prayer, teaching, and homework that will consist of scripture, a handful of questions, and much prayer!   Join us as we learn what it means to be a woman of prayer!

Room 103

All Things New – Kelly Minter
Pam Eckart
Start Date: January 17, 7-9pm
Room 301/302 

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.
 
Over 8 sessions, we will study the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Thursday

Gideon – Priscilla Shirer
Nicole Fisher
Start Date: January 12, 9:30-11:30am
Meeting dates: January 12, 26; February 9, 23; March 9; April 13, 27; May 11
Chapel and break-out rooms
Childcare provided 

Do you feel overwhelmed?  Inexperienced?  Intimidated?  Insufficient?  Too old?  Too young?  Too invisible?  Too afraid?

Gideon’s story involves far more than a wet fleece and a battle won with 300 soldiers.  His epic victory actually tells of one man’s struggle with his own weakness – and the One True God who transformed it into triumph.

So if you’ve ever struggled with insecurity or had trouble accepting your limitations, this study will help you see how God can use your weakness to unlock his strength.  Yes, Gideon can attest – weakness is a gift.  Join us for a study that will open your eyes to a brand new perspective on yourself, your God, and Gideon.

Sacred Secrets – Beth Moore
Amber Hassett
Start Date: January 12, 7-9pm every other week
Room301/302

The word “secrets” might evoke feelings of shame, guilt, or even fear. But not all secrets are bad. Study the theology of secrets with Beth Moore in this 6-session study. Some secrets need forgiveness, and some should be kept between you and God. Sacred Secrets is for busy women who do not have time for an in-depth study; however it does not lack richness or quality. Discussion potential abounds without any expectation of revealing private information. Join this study to find out what happens when we let God teach us "wisdom in the secret heart" (Psalm 51:6, ESV).
