Women of Christ Covenant Church
"Clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God." (1 Peter 3:4)
Women's Bible Study
Women's Bible Study is designed to help women grow in their walk with God. We believe our relationship with Christ begins with our personal study of the Bible and is enhanced and strengthened as we meet corporately to share what we have learned. We welcome women from all stages of life as we learn and grow together.
A typical study has daily homework that we will discuss when we meet weekly. In class we often have a short teaching and spend the bulk of the time in small group discussion and prayer. In the past we have done in-depth studies of books of the Bible as well as topical studies focusing on areas like prayer,spiritual disciplines, or women in the Bible.
Classes are generally a semester in length, and we are currently in the middle of the Spring class. If you would like more information regarding Bible study please contact Florence Rabon at 919-844-5426 or Vaneetha Demski at 919-850-2181.
Sisters in Christ
Sisters in Christ is a ministry that seeks to come along side of and encourage the women of Christ Covenant Church. Through regular times of learning and fellowship, women have the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and also in relationship with each other. Our goal is to create an environment that is loving and supportive as we seek to challenge women to honor Christ in whatever situation he has called them into. We recognize that God designed women to be highly relational beings and it is in a loving Christ centered community that women thrive and learn to become strong in the Lord and in their other relationships.
Sisters in Christ meets approximately every other month at varying times to best accomodate different schedules. Some meetings are primarily focused on teaching Biblical truth or hearing a personal testimony of God's grace in a woman's life. Other times the meetings may be more focused on offering practical instruction on a particular topic. Some of our topical meetings have sought to encourage women in their roles as homemakers, wives and mothers and have featured practical help in these areas. Sister's in Christ gatherings are planned well ahead and all women are invited and encouraged to attend. At each meeting, there is always a time for fellowship and refreshments and an intentional effort to reach out to visitors and new members.
This class runs for six weeks each fall and is a very intentional instructional time with older women in the church teaching a group of younger women in the spirit of Titus 2:3-5. The class includes a cooking demonstration, a meal and fellowship time as well as a teaching on topics such as loving your husband and loving your children.
The women's ministry hosts a weekend, overnight retreat each spring during which women have the opporutnity to hear solid Biblical teaching as well as the leisure to grow deeper in their relationships with each other. The next scheduled retreat will be March 23-25, 2012.
