Women’s Ministry

We women need encouragement and support as never before. We often find ourselves in places we never expected to be as the result of changes we weren’t always prepared to embrace. We are pulled in several directions at the same time and feel guilty when we can’t do it all perfectly. We have the means of instant communication at our fingertips but may feel more isolated and alone than ever before.

At the heart of every woman lies a deep longing for relationships that go beyond the surface. And these treasured friendships are gifts from the Father. We were never meant to go it alone!

The heart of God has a deep longing for relationships that go beyond the surface, too. Even our best relationships with other women are only a shadow of the fulfillment found in a relationship with our loving maker!

With all this in mind, we seek to provide opportunities for you to connect with other women who, like you, long to strengthen their relationships, both with God and those around them. We believe that when we come together –whether it’s to study, to share our stories, to serve those in need, or to simply chat over a cup of coffee – something important happens. Our hearts are stirred in love for one another and for God!

There are many ways to plug in to the Women’s Ministry, so please feel free to browse our programs and simply show up as you wish. But we would also love the opportunity to connect you with a host for your first visit with us to help ease any newcomer nerves. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch!




Join us January 19 as we study the book of Psalms. WOW meets on Thursday mornings, 9:30-11:30 AM, with coffee and refreshments starting at 9 AM. WOW offers large group teaching and discussion time in small groups. This is a great place to connect with other women and grow deeper in our knowledge of God’s word. We look forward to having you join us!

We love seeing new faces and welcome all newcomers to Signal Pres and the community at large!

Childcare is provided of children birth through Pre-K.

GATHER & GROW – Evenings

This is a once-a-month evening gathering for women. Set apart from the busy schedule of the work week, Gather and Grow is a place to connect with women in our community, share a meal together, and learn from God’s word and his people. This year we will be looking at the lives of Women of Faith. We can learn so much from the stories of God’s daughters who have gone before us. Studying their faith journeys can impact our own lives in profound and timely ways. Gather and Grow will meet in October-December and February-April, on the first Monday of the month in Woodward Hall at 6:30 PM. $5 donation requested for dinner. We look forward to being with you!

For more info contact Lorie Dewey.

Beatitude Living is a fellowship of women committed to working through life-controlling problems and dependencies with Biblical principles and Christ-centered solutions. The group time is structured by the 12-Steps developed by AA and is patterned after the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5). The group offers a safe and confidential place for women working towards recovery from codependency, relational conflict, substance abuse, parenting challenges, the addictions of significant others, or any life-controlling situation. The goal is freedom from dependencies which we find ourselves powerless to change or control.

Newcomers are welcome.

For more info contact Hannah.

MEETINGS // Mondays, 9:30-10:30 AM, Greeting Room | Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 PM, Covenant House
