Women’s Ministry
 

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, having the courage to BE who God has called them to be and to DO what He's called them to do. 

GROUPS & GATHERINGS FOR WOMEN
We encourage all women to get connected in community by participating in our Gather Events and vibrant small groups.

For the richest experience of community and growth, we encourage everyone to join a small group. We offer group options for every age and season.  Each group begins with Rooteda 10-week experience designed to deepen your faith and help you discover God’s purpose for your life. Learn more about leading or joining a group here or email us at groups@ChristChurch.us.

    Deeper Still
    Women’s Ministry Podcast
     

    Deeper Still | Women’s Ministry Podcast

    Season Three | Ephesians
    Seasons One & Two are available for download. 

    Listen here or on your favorite podcast platform!

    Hosted by Suanne Camfield, Deeper Still is a conversational-style podcast that alternates between taking deep dives into some books of the Bible and enjoying guests on a variety of spiritual topics along the way. 

    Deeper Still stems from the belief that God relentlessly and passionately pursues His people, inviting them into an ever-deepening relationship with Himself, with one another and with the world. Our hope at Deeper Still is that you'd experience more of God's presence in the midst of your everyday life. Your everyday chaotic, mundane, joyful, broken, messy, beautiful life. Because just when you think God might be done with you, He calls you to go deeper. And then He calls you to go Deeper Still.

    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.

    Free 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.

    Holy Yoga
    Mondays |May 2–23 | 9:30–10:30 a.m.
    Oak Brook

    Holy Yoga 

    Mondays | 9:30–10:30 a.m. | Room 161 
    Session Three | May 2, 9, 16 & 23
    Cost | $12/single class or $10/class for entire session


    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 (Phil 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 welcome!  Modifications will be cued as necessary throughout this slow-flow experience.

    When should I arrive? 
    Class will BEGIN at 9:30.  Please arrive a few minutes early to settle your mind for a fruitful class.  

    How do I sign up?
    Registration coming soon! 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.
