We connect, encourage, support, and equip women.

Our goal is to equip women to: live according to God’s Word, rejoice in the gospel, and invest in meaningful relationships. We seek to glorify God through serving Him at home, church, and throughout the world. We invite women to pursue a deeper relationship with God so that they will be better equipped for life and service in a way that strengthens and extends the Kingdom as expressed in the mission of Alexandria Presbyterian Church.

Women’s Ministry Fellowship Opportunities

Social

REFRESH

Community for Moms.  REFRESH is a monthly opportunity for any mom to gather and catch a breath together in the midst of our journeys in motherhood. Expect a short “conversation topic” (different each month), light refreshments, encouragement from other moms of all ages, and perhaps some laughter/tears as we journey this road in community together.  Regular REFRESH opportunities will take place on the second Sunday of the month. If you’re a mom of very young children and will need the nursery for childcare, or if you have any questions, please contact Jackie McCauley .

Bible Studies

Thursday Women’s Bible Studies | 1-2:15am or 8-9:15pm
New Study begins April 8th at 1pm and 8pm via Zoom. The women of the church are invited to join us as we practice a form of Scriptural engagement called Hand Copying Scripture.  Hand Copying Scripture has been called the Meditation of Kings by some. Deuteronomy 17:18-20 records how God instructed the kings of Israel to handwrite the books of the Law for themselves, and to keep it with them, reading it all the days of their lives so that they were familiar with the ways of the Lord.  We invite you to join us in the practice of hand writing the Scriptures to help us slow down and really savor what we are reading. We will spend 8 weeks hand copying the books of Habakkuk, Malachi and Hebrews. We will write 50 verses a week (10 verses a day, 5 days a week), then gather weekly to discuss what we are learning as we encounter God through His Word in this new way. We ask that you have hand written the book of Habakkuk for the first meeting. Please contact Lynn Streett to register or if you have any questions:  [email protected]gmail.com.
Friday Women’s Bible Study | 10am
The Friday women’s Bible study will begin meeting again on the 8th of January. Ladies, join us for an 8-week study: God Does His Best Work with Empty, written by Nancy Guthrie. Have you felt a empty through the loss of a loved one, a job, a sense of purpose?  Or is there something missing that you can’t quite pinpoint?  God does His best work with empty, as His Spirit fills our emptiness with Himself.  We meet by Zoom every other Friday morning at 10am beginning January 8. Contact Ruth Fisher for more information and to receive the study guide at r[email protected].

A Love Letter for the New Year

In summers past, we have offered ideas for books to read in community.  This summer, we offer something a bit different.  Twice monthly we will be sending you meditations on the theme Come and Feast.  We had hoped to explore this invitation during our time together at the retreat.  Though our retreat was overcome by events, the theme of feasting on Christ and all He has done, remains immanently relevant.  We hope you will take some time, perhaps with a group of friends, to revel in what it means to feast on being God’s daughter.

Come and Feast
