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 Prayer Call

Mondays beginning September 9, 7:00 – 7:20am

Call 1.563.999.2090, Participant Code 556821#

 

This fall, start off each week with a prayerful heart. Join us Monday mornings beginning September 9 for a prayer conference call with the women of The Moody Church.

 

From 7:00–7:20 each Monday, simply dial into our new prayer line to join in prayer with other women. Mary Lowman, Director of Women’s Ministry, will host the call as we come together to pray for our church, our families, and ourselves. You’ll be able to listen to and pray with your sisters in Christ.

 

Call 1.563.999.2090 and use participant code 556821#. Put it on your calendar and make it part of your weekly routine.

 

God honors united prayer, and we trust He will bless our efforts as we use this conference call to come together in unity and supplication.

Women’s Prayer Meetings

Friday November 13, 6:30 – 8:00pm, Room 307

 

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.

Women’s Book Study: It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way

Sundays beginning September 29, 11:30am in Room 304

 

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful? Some of life’s events simply catch us off guard for a moment; others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she’s also discovered that our disappointments can be divine appointments to radically encounter God.

 

Join us beginning September 29 as we study It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered. You’ll find a biblical perspective that will help you trust in God’s goodness through the pain and uncertainty. Books will be available in class.

Precept Bible studies establish people in the Word of God by discovering Truth for themselves using the Inductive Bible Study Method, and resulting in a changed life for Christ.

 

Our classes for women meet Tuesday mornings, Thursday evenings, and Saturday mornings. Join us and experience spiritual growth and fellowship as we study the Bible together.
