Welcome to Christ Church Women!

Christ Church believes in the power of women to uniquely influence their workplaces, homes, neighborhoods and beyond. We believe in the power of women to influence the church. Our Women’s Ministry mission is to cultivate an environment where women are equipped, inspired and empowered to know and experience the power of God. A place where women in any season of life gather for connection, community and an opportunity to explore faith together. We hope you'll join us for one or more of the groups, gatherings and events we offer.

    Women Of Hope: A Community Bible Study 

    (Formerly The Well)

    Women of Hope is a weekly women's community Bible study where we set aside time to worship, learn and encourage one another in the study of God's Word. Each week we meet together in a large-group setting for worship and teaching, then break into small groups for discussion and prayer. Whether you are new to your faith journey or have been studying the Bible for years, Women of Hope is a welcoming community and there's a place for you here.

    Our first study in January will be The Extraordinary Power of Praise, a 6-week study of Psalms for the Anxious Heart. We can all relate to feeling anxious, but how do we step into a posture of praise in the midst of it and how can that possibly help us?  Join us as we take a deeper look at the power of praise.

    Then we will begin Matchless, the Life and Love of Jesus, which will be a 7-week study through April 18.

    Child care (birth to kindergarten) is available on Tuesday mornings only. There will be a link to register for child care in your confirmation email.

    Our Butterfield campus group will resume on Monday, March 6 with the study Matchless, the Life and Love of Jesus.

    We need your help! Interested in serving? Contact Cathy Lapinski, Women's Ministry Director.

  • MOPS: Mothers of Preschoolers

    First & Third Wednesdays* | January 18May 17, 2023
    9:15
    11:15 a.m. | Oak Brook | Fellowship Halls

    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.

    * Visit the Fall 2022 Calendar for specific meeting dates & topics.

    Holy Yoga
    Thursdays | 9:15–10:15 a.m. 
    Oak Brook

    Holy Yoga 

    Thursdays | 9:15–10:15 a.m. 
    Cost | $12/single class or $40/four classes

    Winter Sessions will kick off on January 19

    What is Holy Yoga?
    Holy Yoga is the intentional practice of connecting our entire being, body, mind and spirit with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is experiential worship created to deepen people’s connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to facilitate a Christ-honoring experience that offers an opportunity to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship and wellness. 

    We practice with our minds set on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8), not with our minds emptied. We meditate on the wisdom of God’s Word (Psalm 119:9–16, 26–27), not on man’s wisdom. We seek the transcendence and glory of God, not our own.

    What should I wear and bring to class?
    Participants should wear comfortable clothes (layer up) and have a yoga mat or thin exercise mat. A yoga block or pillow/blanket may also be handy.   

    Who will be leading the class?
    Certified Holy Yoga Instructor, Kimberly Leigh. Kimberly is honored to lead, and excited to share how God uses yoga as a practice of integrating breath, motion and prayer to help us all grow deeper in our relationship with Christ while at the same time nurturing the vessel He's blessed us with.  

    What type of yoga is practiced during this 60-minute class?  Students can expect Hatha and Vinyasa-style yoga to be taught.  All levels are welcome! Modifications will be cued as necessary throughout this slow-flow experience.

    When should I arrive? 
    Class will BEGIN at 9:15 a.m.  Please arrive a few minutes early to settle your mind for a fruitful class.  

    How do I sign up?
    Please register below. If a first-time student, the Holy Yoga waiver can be filled out in person prior to class. 

    Class size is limited to the first 20 participants. 24-hour notice is preferred for drop-in participants. Child care is not available at this time.
