Women’s Ministries

Presbyterian Women offer Highland women and their guests a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth and Christian fellowship. Bible studies, retreats, local and international service ministries, and other activities bring Jesus to life in a variety of powerful ways. The coordinating team meets the second Thursday of each month at 10:00. We invite you to check out these fellowship activities: 

Women’s Hebrews Bible Study

This group will meet in the Highland choir room from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm every Monday from now until May 17. We invite you to join this seven-week study of Hebrews using video with Bible teacher Lisa Harper. “The Book of Hebrews is a rich, dense section of Scripture that can intimidate the most scholarly biblical student. But Lisa Harper makes digging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth. Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end.”   A limited quantity of workbooks will be available at the church or you can purchase them online. Please either contact study coordinator Barb Droz or call the office and ask Donna Stettler to sign up. 

 

Women’s Book Discussion Group

As Christian women living in and not apart from our world, we, in Presbyterian Women, hope to offer a safe environment for women to meet to discuss the challenges and opportunities of life as presented in the selected books.

  • Meets the fourth Wednesday, September and October, and January through May from 12:30-2 in Room 208. In November and December we meet the third Wednesday due to the holidays in the fourth week.
  • Bringing a snack or bag lunch is optional.
  • Book lists are available in the church office on the table by the reception desk and at the Welcome Center. Members of the group lead the book discussions although sometimes it is just done as a group. It is hoped that each person will be familiar with the book selected for that month and participants are encouraged to offer insights and opinions from their personal experiences. Books for the following year are chosen from suggestions by the group and are voted on and announced in May. Books contain a broad range of subject matter including non-fiction and one classic.
  • For more information, please contact Judy Eyster or Marge Carpenter or check the monthly announcements in the Heartbeat.
  • Currently meeting via zoom
