Winter Bible Study


“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,
but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45

Join us for a nine-week Bible Study on the Gospel of Mark and be immersed in the life and ministry of Jesus. In this Gospel, Jesus serves the world with wisdom, power, compassion, and sacrifice. From the very first verse it is clear, Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, who will save the world. Come learn more about who Jesus is, what He has done for you, and be encouraged to fully embrace the Savior who dearly loves you.

The homework for this study will be based on the Digging Deeper study method where women answer four questions. What does it say about God? What does it say about me? What does it mean? And, how should I respond? The great thing about practicing this study method is you can use it on your own or in community at any time.

Each week you will also build relationships through engaging conversations in small group time and learn from six Valley Church women who came together to prepare a nine-week video teaching series.

Women's Ministry Mentoring

Applications accepted during the month of July

Are you a woman who desires to grow in faith? Are you teachable and eager to learn from a more experienced follower of Christ? Then take a look at Valley Mentoring!

A mentor is someone with a little more experience who comes alongside another and points her to Jesus. We would love to line YOU up with a Valley Church mentor. Mentors and mentees meet every two to three weeks from October through April. Your mentor is here to love, listen, encourage, and pray with you.

Here is what one of the mentees shared about her experience.
“I feel I have a new friend in my mentor. I know I could come to her with any question, concern or prayer request, and she would be there for me. She has also been very open as she has walked through preparing to send a son to college this fall, and transitioning family members from living at home to assisted living. It has been beneficial to watch her navigate the processes as I believe both will be in my future.”
Click here to apply!

PLEASE NOTE: We do ask that mentors and mentees be attenders of Valley Church.

MOPS has given me a great opportunity to build relationships with other moms in the same season of life. Together we’re able to navigate young motherhood, marriage, and following Jesus in a fun setting.

Lindsay Morris

Valley Women’s Ministry has provided me great opportunities to connect, grow and lead. My second week at Valley, I was invited to a Bible Study and out of that study came many of my best friends!

Val Bantz

When we do Bible study together, the layering of shared life experiences and practical application that my sisters in Christ bring to the table enriches my perspective and understanding. It strengthens and encourages my faith.

Our hope is that you walk away refreshed, inspired, connected, and ready to brave the day.

You can expect a fun variety of snacks, curriculum, fellowship, prayer and devotions, crafts, playdates, and outside events.
