Women’s Bible Studies
It’s not too late to join us for Women’s Bible studies, going on Now thru December 1st! In-person and online options available. Choose from one of the following studies:
Everyday Theology: What You Believe Matters. (Morning or evening study options.) Your beliefs determine the lens through which you see the world and how you respond to both blessing and disaster. Your theology shapes your life. Join us as we look at how our theology helps us rightly order our lives to honor and worship God. Click on the buttons below to find out more and register!
In Person Option
After the Boxes are Unpacked. (Evening only.) This is a great study for women who have recently moved or still feeling unsettled from a move that took place during the pandemic. We’ll walk through biblical principles and practical ways to guide you through your move as you learn to let go, start over, and move forward, in addition to sharing our best “Austin” insider recommendations!

Forgiven and Set Free, Post-Abortion Bible Study. (Evening only.) As many as 40% of church-going women have had an abortion. No matter what drives someone to end a pregnancy, there can be physical, psychological, and spiritual side effects most don’t anticipate. Even if you chose it for what you considered to be all the right reasons, you are not exempt from mourning the loss of your child. Feelings of guilt, shame, and grief can become a heavy burden, and you may feel that you will never be free, that no one understands, and that God will never forgive you. But these are lies. You can experience the peace of God’s forgiveness. Join us for this 8-week study as we delve into Scripture and learn how to process denial, anger, depression, and grief as we let go of the past and accept God’s gift of grace. Confidentiality will be respected.
Being a first-time mom brings so many changes physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. At Grace, we want to provide a place where you can bring your baby and connect with other moms and mentors to find friendship, acceptance, and encouragement. We will discuss topics such as parenting, baby care, family/in-laws, taking care of you, and keeping your marriage healthy.
Our next session of Square One starts Tuesday, October 5, at 10am and meets weekly over a period of six weeks. Register and get details at the button below or email Claire with your questions.
Girlfriends at Grace
October 5, 2021:
Navigating Mental Health Challenges: Your Own or Others
In the last year and a half, mental health issues have sharply increased, and statistics show that you or someone you know is likely suffering with some sort of mental health challenge. How do you help others carry the burden of mental health struggles? What is helpful and what is not? How do you maintain healthy boundaries while still loving well? Join us at the next Girlfriends at Grace as we hear from a licensed professional counselor who will discuss ways to navigate mental health issues with those we care about. God has gifted us the body of Christ to carry each other’s burdens, and yet we are to each carry our own load (Galatians 6:2-5). How do we tell the difference? How can we love others well so that no believer suffers alone? Come be equipped so that our words, prayers, and support would be wrapped in humility, gentleness, and wisdom as we care for one another like Jesus cares for us – wholeheartedly. Bring a friend! The cost is $10 and includes snacks and refreshments.
Learn at Lunch
October 20, 2021 • 12:15pm -1:30pm
What is Your Working Genius?
Far too many people suffer needlessly because they don’t understand their personal areas of working genius. Using your strengths in the workplace and in your relationships can bring you much joy and energy. However, when you don’t understand your areas of working genius, you can feel easily drained and discouraged. Join us at the next Learn at Lunch to discover the unique gifts you bring to your tasks at work. When you register, you’ll be sent a link to take the assessment and at this workshop, you’ll learn about which of the 6 types of WorkingGenius you are so that you can tap into the way you’re created and thrive at work. The cost is $20 and includes a link to the Working Genius test at a discounted price. Bring your lunch and some co-workers; we’ll provide drinks and dessert.
MOPs is a ministry at Grace just for Moms of Preschoolers (0-5 years-old). We meet at Grace twice a month on Friday mornings at 9am.
At MOPs, we create a space for you to connect with other moms in your life stage with speakers, fun activities, and small group discussion, all while your children are cared for in the MOPPETS childcare program. Invited speakers teach from a biblical perspective on topics like marriage, parenting, and family, and smaller group discussions help you form and deepen friendships.
If you are interested in attending MOPs, or simply have questions about the program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cultivate is a discipleship ministry designed to glorify God by guiding women to become like Christ in all of life. Cultivate provides a structure and for intentional relationships with other women in order to:
- EMPOWER women to become like Christ in all of life
- ENCOURAGE women toward maturity in Christ
- EQUIP women to invest in the lives of others
- EMBOLDEN women to persevere in multiplying
It takes time to build and grow relationships. That’s why, as a disciple, you will be paired with a discipler and small group (2-5) of other disciples for the period of one year. Cultivate disciples will commit to a prayer, care and share model that will include:
- Attending gatherings with your discipleship group once a month
- Connecting one-on-one with your discipler once a month
- Committing to the discipleship group and to spending time daily with the Lord for one year
If you’d like to participate either as a disciple or a discipler, fill out a questionnaire below. You’ll be contacted by a member of our team soon!
