Women make up at least half of the church. Discipleship by and for women in our congregation is vital for the flourishing of the whole body. But women’s discipleship does not stop there. A gospel-centered women’s discipleship ministry not only trains and equips women to serve within the church, but also provides opportunities for women to discover and develop their God-given gifts for the purpose of making Christ known in their homes, in their communities, and beyond, through both sound biblical training and practical experience.
LEARNING AND SERVING TOGETHER
These goals are accomplished in part through active learning environments provided by our regular inductive Bible studies, our annual Women’s Workshop, and the invitation to join us in community outreach. In these inter-generational settings, women are given tools that are needed for more effective personal Bible study, a deeper understanding of the gospel, and the experience of discipling other women in group settings and one-on-one mentoring relationships.
WOMEN CARING FOR WOMEN
We have also begun networking with organizations and experts in our community which will provide myriad opportunities for our women to shine the light of Christ into the lives of women in need. These ongoing efforts will help us connect with, and offer gospel hope and healing to women who have experienced the trauma of abuse, who are facing an unplanned pregnancy, who are living with the devastating grief and loss of a past abortion, or are suffering in other ways.
We are continuing to look into ways of providing safe spaces in a healthy and thriving relational community where every woman can grow in understanding and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and then share what she’s learning with those He brings into her life.
Winter Bible Study 2023: A Living Hope in Christ – A Study of 1 Peter (Click HERE for Registration)
Tuesday 6:30-8:30 PM or Thursday 9-11 AM
February 21/23 – April 18/20 | Rockport Baptist Church
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.
