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
The Thursday women’s Bible studies will begin meeting again on the 14th of January. We will be using Nancy Guthrie’s study, Even Better Than Eden:  Nine Ways the Bible’s Story Changes Everything About Your Story. Tracing nine themes that run from Genesis to Revelation, we will delight not only in the beautiful cohesiveness of God’s love and redemptive plan as it flows through the Bible from cover to cover, but also in how that impacts our lives here and now. This study will be offered via Zoom on Thursdays at 1pm and 8pm.  Please email Lynn Streett at [email protected].com to sign up and receive the weekly Zoom links. You can purchase the book through Christian Book Distributors or Amazon.

We will study closely Jesus’ arrest, trial, death, and resurrection from September to November using John 18-21.  Then we will transition to a new 8-week study, God Does His Best Work with Empty, written by Nancy Guthrie. Please email Ruth Fisher or text 703-772-2733 to let her know that you plan to “come”!  She will need to send you a Zoom invite.

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.
