Large Groups and Classes usually run during the Winter/Spring semester and again in the Fall.  They can run from 6 to 12 weeks.  They usually break for Summer and Holidays.  Childcare is often provided.  They are centered around the study of the Bible or a topical study.  Even though they meet in a large group for teaching they almost always break up into small groups during the class for more personal connection and growth.  Large Groups are a great way to meet other women and build relationships.  Please feel free to call or email the contact person for more information.


Refresh Women's Bible Study (Heart Of God)

Refresh Women’s Bible Study is a place for women of all ages to connect with one another, encourage one another and study God’s word together. As a group, we share a light snack during our weekly video or teaching. We spend the remaining time in small groups reviewing and discussing homework, gleaning from one another’s experiences, and sharing prayer requests.

We meet on Friday mornings during the school year from 9:30-11:30am in the Youth Auditorium. Childcare for ages 5 and under is provided. We also offer home school monitoring for children over 5 (please bring homework).

Registration will be in the lobby in late summer after church services. You may also register at the first class (come early!).

New Day Women's Center

New Day Women’s Center is a community for women of all backgrounds to connect and share opportunities for personal, professional and spiritual growth through seminars, classes, support groups, counseling and coaching services within the center as well as in outreach to the community.

Women need a place where we can talk about what’s going on in our lives – a place where we can be heard, supported, encouraged and feel safe to express our feelings, challenges and struggles.  We need a place where we won’t be judged but will be pointed towards solutions and resources.

NDWC is for those of us who may function very well in most areas of our lives yet face challenges at times that can be overwhelming. During those times we need a place where we can find encouragement and support in a community of women who really understand.  That’s what New Day Women’s Center is all about.  You will find quality services, relevant to what’s going on in your life to help you become stronger, happier and healthier in ways that can have a lasting impact on your family and community.
