We exist to serve all women of The Moody Church, encouraging and equipping them to know, love, and serve Jesus and others. We take seriously Paul’s admonitions in Titus 2:3-5, which instructs women to teach other women, encouraging one another, and training up young women to be strong in the faith. Our ministry programs and events seek to provide relevant help, based on biblical principles and doctrines, in all areas of their lives, including our lifestyles and behaviors, our relationships and marriages, parenting, sexual issues and personal priorities. There’s a place in our ministry for all women in our church—all ages and cultures and backgrounds—and we invite your participation, your suggestions, and your partnership with us.

Upcoming Events

Women’s Book Study: An Extra Mile

Sundays beginning June 16, 11:30am in Room 304

 

All women are invited to join us as we study this final installment of the Sensible Shoes series by Sharon Garlough Brown. The women of Sensible Shoes are navigating both deep joy and devastating loss. Can they find equilibrium in the midst of all that has changed?

 

  • Mara: While faced with the turmoil of divorce and chaos at home, she is also listening for a call to serve others with courage and creativity.

 

  • Hannah: As she grieves the twin losses of her dear friend and her Chicago ministry position, she also begins to embrace the joys and challenges of a new marriage.

 

  • Charissa: Overwhelmed by her pregnancy and the demands of her teaching schedule, she is in need of even more grace for herself and others.

 

  • Becca: Bereft and filled with regrets, can she find hope for the future and a way home?

 

Travel with these beloved friends as they endure trials that test their trust and their willingness to walk an extra mile. Books are $10 each and are available in class or at the Women’s Ministry Kiosk on Sunday mornings.

 

Women’s Prayer Meetings

Fridays August 16 and November 13, 6:30 – 8:00pm

 

It’s been said that prayerlessness is the Christian’s Declaration of Independence. In light of the truth—that we are actually totally dependent upon God—and our need for more corporate prayer, I am calling the women of our church to gather quarterly on Friday evenings to pray for our homes, our church, our city, and our country. This is our Declaration of Dependence—knowing how desperately we need God’s guidance and strength as we see our culture becoming more and more godless.

 

I urge you to make these dates a priority in your schedule. We’ll meet for 90 minutes of concentrated prayer as we seek to obey James 5:16—Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
