Women's Bible Studies

Fall 2019

Thursdays: Messianic Psalms

The Psalms contain nearly 70 references to Christ that are fulfilled in his life and recorded in the New Testament. We will spend eight weeks looking at some of these psalms and learning to see Jesus in the prayer and praise book of the Old Testament.

At the same we will also learn a method of Bible study described in Jen Wilkin’s book Women of the Word. Homework each week is designed to help you observe what the passage says. Teaching and small group discussion while we meet will lead you through the processes of interpretation (What does it mean?) and application (How should I respond?).

Dates: September 12 – November 14 (8-week study)
Cost: $5

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.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

9:30-11:00am · Two Fridays per month

Our MOPS group is currently full. In the meantime, please join our waitlist for the 2019-2020 session.

We believe that it’s just as important for moms to grow as it is to take care of our little ones. Therefore, MOPS exists to serve you and your kids. While your children play and learn in the care and safety of our on-site MOPS KIDS program, MOPS moms meet to socialize, hear from speakers, engage in creative activities and small group discussion, and share in a kid-uninterrupted breakfast and coffee break. Our hope is that you walk away refreshed, inspired, connected, and ready to brave the day.

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

While we do have room for all moms, our provided childcare is limited to specific numbers to be sure that each child receives the individual love and attention that they deserve. For more information, email MOPS or call 226-9973.

Mentoring

MATCH WITH
A MENTOR!

Sign up today!

Ladies, could you use some encouragement in your life from a woman who is just a little ways down the road in life? Someone who has “been there, done that” and can bring some hope and humor and Biblical wisdom to your situation? Could you use a listening ear and someone to share friendship with and pray with you? Then maybe Valley Church’s Mentoring Ministry is for you.

We are entering our third year of this ministry and currently have 30 pairs of women meeting on a regular basis. To read more about how it all began, read our blog post. All were mutually encouraged and blessed through these multi-generational friendships.

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.”

This ministry is specifically geared toward young moms, but all who are seeking a mentor are welcome. We would love to line YOU up with a mentor. She would meet with you every two to three weeks from this September through next April, to get to know you, bring encouragement from God’s Word and pray with you.

If you have any questions, email Amy Natzke or call Valley Church at 226-9973.

Surrendering the Secret

Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion Abortion can be one of the most traumatic experiences in a woman’s life. Surrendering the Secret is a powerful 8-week study that helps hurting women find the path to healing through honest, interactive Bible study. With compassion, you will be encouraged and supported as you allow God into rooms of your heart that might have been sealed for too long.

It’s time to let go of the shame, accept His forgiveness and heal. All you need is to be willing. God wants to set you free! For more information and to register for this study, email Stacy or call Sue at 515-480-1097. Please note that ALL contacts and registrations are confidential.

Prayer

MOMSnext

When we’re past the diaper years and sleeping through the night…
When we’re meeting more emotional needs than physical ones…
When we’re caught between our children needing us and not…
It’s time for MOMSnext.

MOMSnext will shape you, ground you, teach you and encourage you. MOMSnext moms are going to be leading PTAs, starting groups, serving in churches, praying for schools, connecting with the community. They are entering a time of life where God wants them to thrive. It’s time for them to look up and see their bright future. Our hope is that MOMSnext will help moms hear God’s voice and look ahead together.
