The women's ministries at Grace are intended to nurture our faith and connect us as ladies who are increasingly growing in grace and truth through the study of God's Word, prayer, small groups, and mentoring.
Summer Study on Prayer
Elise Froistad will be leading a women's series from Tim Keller's book "Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God" on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 pm (the first 30 minutes will be fellowship time). The series begins July 11 and will run through August 8. Simply buy your own copy of the book and come ready to discuss the first chapter.
June Drop-In Study Series
"God's Perspective in Our Pain"
During the month of June is a women's 4-week study exploring God's perspective in our pain; we'll discuss God's redemptive purposes, feelings of God's absence, hope, and more. During our time together we'll engage Scripture, watch stories of people who have navigated significant pain, and participate in thoughtful discussion. The same series will be on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm and on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am.
Summer is a wonderful time to gather for dinner with other Ladies of Grace. This is an opportunity to get to know more women in our church in an intimate home-setting. We'll enjoy rich conversation, an intentional time of hearing from one another, and have some fun too. It's a mystery as to who you'll be dining with, but it promises to be a great evening! Please only sign up for one soiree. If the soirees are full, please join our waitlist and mention your date of interest. Spots often become available.
Women's Night of Worship
On Tuesday, August 29th, at 7 pm we'll have a Women's Night of Worship led by CJ Gubitz at the home of Teri Gundlach in Corona Del Mar. This will be a time for the Ladies of Grace to lift our voices in praise, proclaiming God's goodness and love together. More details to come.
Mom's Morning Out
During the summer, each Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:15am to 12:15pm, we offer childcare for our busy moms. Infants and preschool-aged children are welcome. It's a little personal time for you while your kids have fun and enjoy the care of our children's staff!
Abide is our largest Ladies' Bible Study and is open to women of all ages and stages. We meet on Wednesdays from 9-11:30 am. Our mornings include a time of fellowship, teaching, along with small group discussion & connection. Abide will begin again September 13, 2017. Childcare is available for children aged 0-5.
Blessing is a ministry for moms of young children designed to support and strengthen marriages and families. Blessing meets each Tuesday during the school year from 9-11:15 am. Our mornings include a time of fellowship, a speaker, and small group discussion. Blessing will begin again on September 19th. Childcare is available for children ages 0-5.
ABIDE at Night

Every spring we have our annual Connect Ladies' Brunch. It is a special time for the women of Grace to Connect with one another and hear how God is at work in some of the lives of the ladies in our church.
Grace will be hosting its next women's retreat October 19-21, 2018 at Shadow Mountain Resort in Palm Dessert. Our women's retreat is intended to be a life-giving experience to help us encounter God and facilitate deeper and more meaningful connection with other ladies in our community.
