Esther by Beth Moore
The Old Testament story of Esther is a profile in courage and contains many modern parallels for today’s overloaded and stressed woman.

Esther, while a queen, lived as an outsider in a hostile environment. Women will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to equip them to live courageously “for such a time as this.”

Format:  Homework and Group Discussion

Women's Ministry Mentoring

October 2023 – April 2024

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.

If you have any questions call Amy Natzke at 226-9973 or email to

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.

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 snacks, curriculum, fellowship, prayer and devotions, crafts, playdates, and outside events.

Yearly dues are $60 for Valley MOPS, $30 for childcare, and $35 for MOPS International membership. For your convenience, you may pay for the entire year or one semester at a time.
