Ladies, you are invited to a night just to hang out with the women of The Rock, meet some new friends and talk about the needs of the women in our church body and in our community.
What a Women’s Spiritual Fitness gathering looks like
One way in which women feel loved is simply being known, and our God loves us by pursuing a knowledge of us. Because of this our Women’s gatherings are filled with stories, testimonies, sharing of truth, discussion, questions and a desire to listen and learn from one another.
We gather bi-weekly upstairs at The Ledge Cafe on Monday evenings at 7pm. Here there is a safe environment for women to be, learn, talk and pray together; sometimes even to hard words spoken in love.
How we are keeping spiritually fit
Just as God gives life through His breath and through His Word, women are designed to give life though their words and actions as well as through their bodies. Because God’s Word has the power to give life and transform life, our desire is to know His Word and be transformed by it that our words and actions may give life too. We have chosen to approach God’s Word through the inductive study method that we might be able to discover the truth in God’s Word for ourselves through the power of the Holy Spirit, as well as providing an opportunity for us women to participate in discussions in our gatherings as well as our everyday lives.
Precepts Ministries Canada has a proven method for getting people into the Bible themselves. This method usually consists of “homework” that you are able to fit in to the everyday rhythms of your life. Knowing that it’s the Holy Spirit that does all the work, it’s through walking together in the Word together that we see His Spirit transforming us through His Word.
