Women’s Retreat

April 28-30, 2023

Camp Tejas
Giddings, TX

Enjoy a weekend away with your sisters in Christ at Camp Tejas in Giddings, Texas! We’ll spend time connecting with one another, worshipping together, and learning together. We’ll balance our structured time with plenty of free time for you to spend doing whatever is fun and refreshing for your soul. This will be a great chance for you to get away from the distractions of daily life, grow in your walk with the Lord, and enjoy friendships that build you up and help you become more like Christ in all of life!

 

This year’s retreat theme is “Family: to Live as the Church.” In Christ, God has made us one family. We’ll be studying what it really means to live as one family with our sisters in Christ.

Cost

Camp Tejas offers two styles of lodging for women to select the experience and cost they prefer.

  • Bunkhouse housing – $175 per person for the weekend
  • Semi-private housing – $275 per person for the weekend

Both ticket options include all lodging and four meals. Semi-private rooms also come with linens. Plus, you get access to all of the free-time activities and some Women’s Retreat gear to help you make the most out of the weekend.

Schedule

Friday, we will enjoy an opening session and time for fellowship. Make sure you have dinner before you arrive! Saturday will include two guided sessions, group meals and free time. Sunday, we will conclude the retreat with breakfast and a morning session before heading home.

 

You can spend your free time doing whatever refreshes you. You can truly retreat and spend time alone with the Lord or you can hang out with friends (new and old). We’ll have various activities available to choose from including crafts and games, or you can be adventurous and participate in camp activities (at no additional cost) such as the zip line, climbing wall, giant swing, and hiking.

MOPS Event

Girlfriends at Grace

Tuesday, March 7 | 7-9 p.m.
Live Oak Bldg, The Loft

Every day we are faced with new information and a world begging us to form opinions and share our thoughts. How can we evaluate this information and think critically in a way that is true to the Gospel? Critical thinking is an important skill that is developed over time and through practice. Join the women of Grace as we learn together how to ask good questions and think critically through the big and small issues of everyday life. Join us and bring a friend!

Square One

Tuesdays, Jan. 24 – Feb. 28, 2023, 10 a.m. – noon

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 six months old and younger 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. Join us as we get to know each other and seek God’s guidance for this new phase of life. To find out more about Square One, please Email Claire.

Are you expecting? Let us know and we’ll keep you up to date for expected dates in the future.

MOPS Event

MOPS

MOPs is a ministry at Grace just for Moms of Preschoolers (0-5 years old). We meet at Grace twice per month on Friday mornings at 9 a.m.

 

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. 

 

For any questions about the program, please email mopsatgcc@gmail.com. 

 

Women’s Bible Studies

Women’s Bible Studies at Grace are intended to bring women together to grow in their knowledge of and love for God through His Word and to develop and deepen relationships with others. We are women who are learning to think biblically, but we also understand that knowledge alone is insufficient for maturity. Healthy relationships are crucial for transformation. Whether you’re currently in a WBS group or looking to find one, we welcome you!

This Spring, we will be studying the prophetic books of Joel and Amos. Join us beginning January 25, as we see how Joel seeks to rouse Israel from spiritual complacency and can help us open our eyes to the necessity of faithfully following God every moment of our lives. Amos teaches us that both prayer and service are essential to our faith because we are called not only to be in relationship with God but also to be in relationships with others.

New this spring: all AM and PM Studies will include complimentary childcare. PM Studies also include a light dinner.

Description

The Old Testament prophetic books are sometimes perceived as “flyover” books because they don’t get much attention. They reference the unfamiliar history and geography of that time, and repetitive oracles and lack of chronological order can be confusing. The prophets’ job was to speak of coming judgment, exile, and future restoration. The predictions were meant to be incentives to Israel and Judah – and the surrounding nations – to repent of their sins.

We too struggle with the same kinds of sins the Israelites did: idolatry, disregard for God’s law, empty religiosity, being in love with the world, greed and lack of concern for the poor. We too are subject to the same judgment: we can’t claim to be people of God and live in ongoing, unrepentant rebellion against God’s commands and expect to inherit all He has promised. The good news is, we also share in the same hope for restoration, renewal and rest. As the prophets placed their hope in the Savior to come, we look back, having placed our hope on the Christ who has come.

Join us beginning Jan. 25 as we look at the prophetic books of Joel and Amos. Joel seeks to rouse Israel from spiritual complacency and can help us open our eyes to the necessity of faithfully following God every moment of our lives. Amos teaches us that both prayer and service are essential to our faith because we are called not only to be in relationship with God but also to be in relationships with others.
