Women's Ministry

Women's Retreat

Joyful in Hope

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." (Romans 12:12)

Women’s ministry at National gathers women of all ages and life stages to help them grow more deeply in their relationship to Jesus Christ and commitment to serve one another, the church, and the larger community. Join us this year as we explore the theme of "Hope" through Bible studies, small groups, gatherings and events.

Women’s Bible Study: "God with Us"

Saturdays, 9:30–11 a.m.

Church Room 105  |  Leaders: Sandy Sharpe and Barbara Mitchell

This study will show how the hoped for Messiah (Jesus) is revealed in the wilderness Tabernacle. Designed by God, the Tabernacle, gives us a greater appreciation of God’s unending desire to dwell in our midst, help us understand God's plan of redemption, and allow us to better understand our call to live "holy unto Him."
