Seeking Connection: with Jesus • with our own hearts • with each other

The Women’s Ministry at Hope is about connection. We laugh a lot. We celebrate each other. We have lots of parties. We strive to point women to Jesus through a deep connection with their own hearts and with each other. We also help to facilitate mentoring, discipleship training, prayer triads, and social gatherings in order that women from different stages in life can better know and care for one another. We also have various and fun connecting opportunities throughout the year. Whether its the NCAA bracket challenge, dinner parties, or other fellowship opportunities, please make sure you are on Hope’s mailing list so you won’t miss out.

There are two part-time women’s ministry staff positions at Hope. Jen Guzi is involved in women’s leadership development, and Alex Whitaker is also part of the women’s ministry staff. Our Women’s Shepherding Team oversees the women’s ministry at Hope and is comprised of women who are appointed by the session.

Weekday Women’s Bible Study

Wednesday, September 26 | 10:30am – 12pm

If you are free on Wednesday mornings this fall, please join us for Bible Study! We are going to be reading None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different From Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing). This book by Jen Wilkin seeks to help us further understand the heart of our Father, and the implications of that for us as His beloved daughters. We will begin on Sept 26th, and will meet in the Fellowship Hall at OP from 10:30-12. Please register at the link below, and let us know if you need childcare. We will provide for kids 5 and under. Please contact Stephanie Ham with questions.

2018 Women’s Retreat

October 12-14

Join us on October 12-14 in Montreat, NC for our annual women’s retreat. Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to come as well. If you haven’t been on a Hope Women’s Retreat, this is the year. On our retreats, we strive for heart-provoking teaching, intentional time with Jesus, and free time to build community with other women. Our speaker this year will be Jess Connolly, author of Wild and Free, and Dance, Stand, Run. She loves the scriptures, and is going to speak to us around the topic of living out the gospel of grace, and also the holiness we are called to, and set free for.If you have questions, please contact Alex Whitaker.

While we offer two housing options, registration for our Assembly Inn housing is currently full. We still have a limited number of spots available in our Standard Lodge Housing for $135. Questions about housing and retreat waitlist can be directed to Alex Whitaker.

The cost of the retreat is $135 (standard housing).
