Women’s Ministry

The Women’s Ministry at Bear Creek Church seeks to provide many opportunities to encourage women to gather together to learn, grow, serve, encourage, have fun with, and pray for one another. Below you’ll find a wide variety of ways to get involved with the women of Bear Creek Church.
Prayer Groups – The Women’s Prayer Group meets every other Thursday at 1 p.m. to pray for the needs of the church as well as those we support around the world. The group meets at different homes each time, so be sure and check the bulletin at church or online or contact a member of the Women’s Council to be updated.
Conferences – Each year we plan a conference in the fall, and a mini conference in thespring. The Women’s Mini Conference will be taught by Pastors Jim, Brian, and Dale. Watch for upcoming conferences in the bulletin or on our events page.

Informal Get-Togethers – Throughout the year we have informal get togethers to build friendships.
Discipleship/Mentoring – Our discipleship training is on-going throughout the year. We use the book “Fundamentals of the Faith” by John MacArthur which takes about 14 weeks to complete with another woman who has previously gone through the same book. Marla Lance is our coordinator and she has a list of women ready to disciple and is gifted at placing women together with similar schedules and helping them to get started. Mentoring relationships also take place formally and informally with the guidance of spiritually mature women.

Mercy Ministries – Would you enjoy using your natural inclination to bless other women? We have a group of women who often encourage others with a visit, make a call, write an email or send a card at the request of the Women’s Council or one of the Pastors. If you are interested in serving with this caring bunch of women, please contact us.
 
Another way to show mercy towards other women is by preparing and delivering frozen or hot meals to those who have had a baby, surgery, or the death of a loved one. These volunteers will rotate the responsibility, as needed at the request of the Women’s Council or the Pastors. They could always use more helpers. If you are only able to prepare but not deliver they will work with you on that as well.
