Mid-Sized Communities

Throughout the week, Christ Church creates space for mid-size communities to gather together to deepen their relationship with Christ and encourage one another in their faith. Enjoy a large-group teaching time and in-depth, small group discussions. We hope you’ll feel welcomed, inspired and excited to get to know others that are striving to grow closer to Christ!

    Women of Hope is a place of connection, belonging and growth as women set aside time to encourage one another and study God's word. Each week, we enjoy fellowship and conversation in a large-group setting, then break into small discussion groups. Whether you are new to your faith journey or have been studying the Bible for years, Women of Hope is a wonderful community in which to learn, grow and connect with other women.

    This fall we will be exploring Better: A Study of Hebrews by Jen Wilkin.

    Visit the Christ Church Women's Ministry page on YouTube to watch last spring's session on Ephesians.

    Childcare (birth to kindergarten) will be available on Tuesday mornings only.

    Christ Church MOPS believes in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. We rally women to help them become more brave, kind and honest by providing a safe and loving community to journey through motherhood. We know that mothering can be challenging at times, and so MOPS is here to create a space where moms can be themselves.

    Our specialty is serving moms. Whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here.

    We begin meetings with a delicious spread of food to choose from and a time to chat with new and old friends. We enjoy listening to a speaker and finish our meeting by discussing the topic around our tables. 

    Childcare is given to children from infants to kindergarten through our MOPS Kids program. Mothers can relax and enjoy our meetings knowing the MOPS Kids program is caring for their children in the best possible way. The quality care, fun lessons and biblical teaching that MOPS Kids offers helps moms get the most out of their time in the meeting.
