Women’s Ministry

womens-web-photo-fall-2013“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:9

The women’s ministry at The Church of The Apostles desires to be a place where women of all ages and stages can come together to be equipped to use their God-given gifts to minister to the Church and the world.

Our vision is to see women who are committed to a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ through diligent prayer and the study of Scriptures, and who are confident in the use of their gifts so that they reach out in loving relationships, to make an impact in their world.

Bible Studies

A variety of Bible studies are offered for women weekly (daytime and evening) to encourage women to study God’s Word and develop community with other women.

For the full listing of our current and/or upcoming studies please visit our Women’s Bible Study page.


But you, dear friends, build yourself up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. -Jude 1:20

We are women who are committed to a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ through diligent prayer. Are you a woman who knows that God answers prayers? If so, there are many ways to get involved with the women’s prayer ministry. If you cannot commit on a regular basis, you can volunteer to be on the prayer team for one of the women’s ministry fellowship events.

The Close-Knit Flock

Anne Hayes, Lay Leader

that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself -Colossians 2:2 (NASB)

If you enjoy needlework and the fellowship of Christian women, you are invited to reach out to others with the love and encouragement of Christ. These ladies meet twice per month to knit baby hats for Cobb Pregnancy Center. They knit an average of 40 hats per month. No experience necessary. They will teach you!

Single Hearts for Christ

Jan Blakeslee, Lay Leader

Single Hearts for Christ: A fellowship for single, divorced, and widowed women forty and beyond. The Single Hearts for Christ is a women’s fellowship group that brings single Christian women together to enjoy, enrich and support one another. What better place to be than with a group where people know you, pray for you and encourage you in your faith. As we see it, every single, divorced, and widowed woman has different needs, worries, hopes and dreams. But it is certain that each one offers a plethora of experiences, perspectives, challenges and gifts. In Christ, we have all that we need for life and ministry.

Come join us by contacting Jan Blakeslee at jblakeslee@apostles.org.

Mom to Mom

The ministry of Mom to Mom is dedicated to encouraging young mothers in their walk with God and in the nurturing of their children. Ministry is having a spiritual impact in the lives of other people, and we believe that when mothers are impacted for Christ, they will in turn impact their children. Each week we gather in a large group for inspirational stories and teaching time and then meet for an hour in small group interaction with peers and a seasoned leader-mom. Through this ministry we believe you will build relationships that will last a lifetime!
