NCC Women's Ministries welcomes women of our church and community to join us as we impact lives together for the Kingdom of God.
Tuesday, January 28, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. — NCC
Women are invited to explore The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows by James Bryan Smith. The path to spiritual transformation begins with what a person thinks about God. Turning to the Gospels, Smith invites us to put our ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus Himself reveals about God. Once we've discovered the truth in Scripture, Smith leads us through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in our body, soul, and mind. Through this transformative book, small group time, and live teaching by the Director of Women's Ministries, Mary Hoffmann, we will discover the narratives that Jesus lived by--to know the Lord He knew and the kingdom He proclaimed--and to practice spiritual exercises that will help us grow in the knowledge of our good and beautiful God. The book is available to purchase for $14 when you register. Sign up now!
Tuesday, February 4, from 9-11 a.m. — NCC
In this 8-session video group study, you will discover why Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis is one of the most read and beloved Christian books of all time.

Various Christian leaders will help us understand the timeless message of C.S. Lewis in fresh ways for a new generation. Discussing Mere Christianity Video Study: Exploring the History, Meaning, and Relevance of C.S. Lewis’ Greatest Book also explains in an engaging and non-threatening way the basic tenets of the Christian faith. This study guide is available to purchase for $8 and includes video notes and discussion questions, individual activities, and personal study for each session. Scholarships and childcare are available. Register online now.

Invite a friend or come on your own! Either way you will meet new friends at the two-night women’s retreat. Our speaker is Gina Bolton and the focus is “Arms Wide Open.”
Jesus showed His love for us by spreading His arms wide on the cross and giving all He had. Now He asks us to stand before Him, with our arms wide open to receive all He has to give us.
During this weekend, expect to:
- EXPERIENCE the Father’s unconditional love, even in the midst of brokenness.
- Be REMINDED of the faith that He has given you.
- Be ENCOURAGED and FILLED with hope.
- CONNECT with other women on this journey of faith as we throw our arms open wide to all God has for us!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
