Women's Ministry at Joy desires that all women experience life to the fullest as believers in Jesus Christ. We offer a wide variety of opportunities to encourage women in their spiritual growth and help them connect with others. It is our goal that every woman be: embraced by God's grace, empowered by His Spirit, established in His Word and engaged in serving others.

Woman to Woman
Woman to Woman meets on Thursdays at 9:00 AM starting September 10 in The Bridge. Newcomers are always welcome. We start with refreshments, a brief devotion and fellowship. Once a month we also enjoy a guest speaker prior to our class time. We then offer three different Bible studies to choose from:
Faith Lessons Volumes One & Two: Promised Land –Why Here? Why Now? & Prophets & Kings – Whom Shall I Serve? — Join renowned teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan as he guides you through the land of the Bible. In each lesson, Vander Laan illuminates the historical, geographical , and cultural context of the sacred Scriptures. Filmed on location in the Middle East, the Faith Lessons DVD series will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus. Led by Ginny Walker
Study of the Chumash — A study based on the first five books of the Old Testament. Led by Lynette Vatsaas

3-D (Diet, Discipline & Discipleship)
Led by Sandra Lockwood and Sharon Gallego Sundays at 9:30 AM in Room 304. If you are on a journey of reclaiming your life for God, or rediscovering your true self after a period of living "out of control" in some way, you may need this wisdom! Learn how to make every day a new beginning.
