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.

Leadership: Mary Lowman
#MeToo and The Moody Church
Sunday June 2, 1:00-3:30pm, Room 307
$5 registration includes a light lunch
Join our Women’s Ministry Director, Mary Lowman, and Lisa Bishop, Women’s Ministry Director for Park Community Church, for our upcoming Sunday Seminar.
The Moody Church strives to truly fulfill our promise statement to be “a trusted place where anyone can connect with God and others”; we also take seriously the responsibility to ensure that we’re a safe place. We invite you to join Mary Lowman for our upcoming Sunday Seminar for Women: #MeToo and The Moody Church.
The #MeToo movement has raised our cultural awareness of those who have been hurt due to inappropriate and unwelcome attention from the opposite sex—a change that has also been felt in the church. Join us as we address what is appropriate (and inappropriate!) for male/female friendships and relationships, and what to do when the line is crossed. We’ll discuss how to respond in problematic situations, and when and how church leadership should be informed. We’ll also talk about our responsibility as women to behave in Christlike ways toward our brothers.
Our Q&A session will give you the opportunity to ask questions and participate in honest, straight-talk conversation about a topic which is at best kept under the radar, or at worst a source of shame.
Space is limited, so sign up today, either using our online form or at the Women’s Ministry kiosk.
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.
Programs and Classes for Women
This ministry connects women who desire to be mentored with women qualified to disciple others. Women commit to meeting at least once a month, mutually encouraging each other to live an abundant life by following Christ.
Every other Thursday morning, September through April
Mom2Mom encourages and equips moms of infants through school-age children to grow in their faith through fellowship with other moms and the study of God’s Word. Child care is available, $5 per family per meeting.
Sundays 11:30am–12:30pm in Sankey 2
Join us for our latest book study, The Church in Babylon, by our Pastor Emeritus, Dr. Erwin Lutzer. How do we live faithfully in a culture that is becoming more and more hostile to our faith in Christ? This book walks you through the many parallels between the church in America and God’s people in Babylon. You’ll be encouraged not to compromise your faith while at the same time showing the love of Jesus to your world. All women are welcome to join us at any point. No registration necessary. Books are available at the Church Media Center in the lobby.
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.
