Tyler Campuses

Grace Women’s Ministry exists to help women transform into fully devoted Christ-followers.  As we shape our ministry around the values of worship, mission and community, we hope women will find joy in making Christ ultimate, in joining the work of expanding His kingdom and in developing authentic relationships that reflect His love.

Women’s Fall 2021 Bible Study

Need encouragement and accountability when it comes to studying God’s Word? Join us this fall for a 10-week study of the book of Exodus using Jen Wilkin’s study guide, God of Deliverance (A Study of Exodus 1-18).

In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, journey alongside God’s people from Egypt to Mt. Sinai to unpack the deeper meaning behind stories that may already be familiar to you and discover how God fights for His children and prioritizes their worship of Him above all else.

Flourish

As a mom of preschool-aged children, you can easily feel isolated and lonely.  Flourish (formerly MOPS/Mothers of Preschoolers) is a place that fosters connection with other moms in a similar season of life, while learning from mentors who have thrived through this stage of motherhood.

Flourish meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month (September – May) from 9:15- 11:30am. Childcare is provided for children 6 months to 5 years old. Registration for the year is $70, and scholarships are available upon request. Throughout the year, we will hear from speakers on a variety of topics relevant to moms of littles, like marriage, parenting, mental health, and many others. We also start each meeting with breakfast and piping hot coffee! We have crafts and games and good conversation – all while your little ones enjoy some fun time with their friends!

Our group is designed to cultivate relationships. Not only do you get to be a part of a large group of moms who are all in your season of motherhood, but we also facilitate even deeper friendships by breaking into tables of smaller groups. You will get the opportunity to do life with the same small group of moms throughout the year. Each table is additionally loved by a mentor mom, who has been in the trenches before and wants to help you flourish!

We welcome all moms into our community! You do not have to be a member of Grace to join us.

Registration is now open! We can’t wait to meet you!

Women Connect

A casual evening giving women of all ages and in all stages of life the opportunity to connect with each other over an issue with which all women wrestle. Join us to hear a thought-provoking speaker address the issue from a Biblical viewpoint, then stay for dessert and mingle with other women to continue conversations about it.  No matter what the topic of the night may be, our hope is that women walk away with a stronger desire to be rightly connected to God, His word and others.
