Women's Bible Studies

Our mission is to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  We center all we do on Christ.  One way that we do this is by studying His Word, the Bible.  We encourage everyone who walks through our doors to become a student of the Bible.  These weekly Bible studies are a great way to dive into God’s Word and grow in your faith.

Thursday:

Jude: Contending for the faith in today's culture
Thursday @ 9:30 am in the chapel
A seven session bible study written by Jackie Hill Perry touches on the idea of being Called. Loved. Kept.  God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.  Dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth.  We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture. Contact Peggy (peggygoitz@gmail.com) or Heidi (bestfriends94@verizon.net) with any questions you may have.

 
Women of the Way meets Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 pm in The Lower Chapel. Jeannine Galenkamp leads this class. The spring semester begins Thursday, Feb. 3rd.

Following that study they will move on to a new study, “where do we go from here? by David Jeremiah.

The spring semester dates are as follows: Jan. 15th, Feb. 12nd, Mar. 19th, Apr. 23rd, May 21st, and Jun TBD.  They will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall from 9:00 to 11:00 am.  This is a group for moms of preschool and school aged children. There will be time for fellowship, refreshments and studying in God's Word.   Childcare is available and you MUST register to attend this group. We want to be sure to be properly staffed to care for your precious children. Click here to register.

The vision of Moms in Prayer is that every school in the world would be covered with prayer. Would you prayerfully consider joining with other women in our church (mom and women who are not moms but have a heart to pray for our young people) to pray for the kids in our schools. With everything that is going on in our schools right now, we may feel like we are powerless to do anything. That is the farthest from the truth, we have an all powerful God to call upon. He is in control, and He is calling us to come together in prayer. We have two Moms in Prayer groups that meet here at HGC. There is an afternoon group at 1:30 pm on Mondays and an evening group that meets Friday evenings at 7:15 pm.  For more information, please contact Karen Verhoog for the Monday Meeting at NewJersey@momsinprayer.org or Darlene Luke for the Friday Meeting at darlenemerc@hotmail.com.
