Women's Ministries

Women's Ministries is committed to gathering women together to grow closer to our Lord through Scripture study, service, and fellowship. As we draw near to God, He draws near to us; prompting us to reach beyond our comfort zones and invite others into a life-changing and ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Get Involved

We have numerous opportunities for you to get involved in Women's Ministries at Memorial Park Church! Our programs are divided into four branches: Service, Caring, Discipleship (studies & classes), and Fellowship. Whether you're looking for a way to volunteer or searching for a class to enhance your spiritual journey, we have something for you! View opportunities below.
We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Could God be calling you to serve the needs of our community? Women's Ministries organizes collections each month for organizations like Living in Liberty, Women's Choice Network, and Light of Life. For more information about our current collections, contact Michele Holmes, Director of Women's Ministries.
We believe that God has called us together as a family, and we are always on the lookout for how we can love each other through simple gestures such as meal delivery, cards, or just spending quality time together. We'd love for you to join us in caring for eachother! 

Freeze It Forward
We understand how difficult it can be as a single mom, which is why we have a team here at Memorial Park who takes the time to make meals for our Single Mom Freezer Shelf! Single mothers are encouraged to come by and pick up a meal when they are short on time. If you'd like to join our team and make freezer meals, Sign Up Here!

Love Notes Team
Receiving a card in the mail at just the right time is such a blessing. Would you like to be a part of our team and adopt a month to be the card coordinator? Contact the Women's Ministries office to sign up!
We understand more of who God is and who we are in Him when we dig into the truth of scripture. Join a Bible study so we can grow closer to Christ together! For more information on any of our Bible studies, or to sign up, contact the Women's Ministries office. Our classes generally run in the fall from September through December, and in the winter from January through April. We also have several summer study opportunities. Our current classes are listed below.
 
Women to Women
Meets weekly on Wednesdays beginning September 16
10:00-11:30 a.m.
 
Our Wednesday morning studies are a great place to get to know other ladies in our church family, and to be encouraged and challenged by God’s word. This year, our study will be held both in-person and online. Pastor Dean’s final study with us as our Lead Pastor is one near to his heart and incredibly relevant to the conversation the Lord is stirring in our hearts today. Pastor Dean will be leading a discussion on Jemar Tisby’s book, The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism. We will have space to socially distance in the Sanctuary while providing a simultaneous online Zoom version for those who wish to join from home. Please order your books from Amazon here, or e-mail us for assistance in ordering your copy. Register by September 11 so we can account for space.

Centering Prayer
Meets weekly on Thursdays beginning September 24
10:00 a.m.
When we intentionally make time to listen to the Lord, we discover He has much to say. When we choose not only to listen but also to make ourselves available simply to spend time with Him, He transforms us. Join us for this powerful time of centering prayer together. We will meet in person (masks and social distancing required) or on Zoom (based on the number of registrations and at our discretion). Please register by September 20.

Our annual Women's Retreat is a time for women to gather together to recharge. Through devotions, Bible study, presentations from guest speakers, and time in fellowship, we take time to worship and grow our relationships with eachother and the Lord.

 
Mother's of Preschoolers, better known as MOPS, provides a place for young moms to find friendship and community while they enjoy engaging speakers and meaningful discussions. MOPS Meetings generally begin in early September and meet twice a month.  In an effort to keep everyone safe this year, MOPS will be meeting in small groups in homes or virtually.  We are breaking the year into semesters.  The first semester will run from September-December and the second semester will run from January-May.  We will NOT be offerin childcare for at least the first semester and will be meeting at night to allow for childcare arrangement to be made. 

 Find out more about MOPS by visiting the national MOPS website here or by contacting the Women's Ministries office by e-mail.
