A major goal of the women's ministry, is to connect women. In our gatherings we want to be a group that is safe and attractive to other women who are also looking to connect, share, grow, and learn.
We want to provide a ministry that enables people to feel safe with each other. Therefore, as each person desires, they can share with each other, learn from each other, and pray for each other, all within the context of digging into the Scripture or Scriptural ideas together.
It is in this context that we work to bring together our women, their friends, and others who want to come. That way we can build a caring fellowship around God's word.
Also . . did you know . .
...that we have a Women’s Council here at Highlands church! We have been working behind the scenes for the past year. Our purpose is to equip our women to grow in their relationship with God and each other. We do this by planning for Bible and book studies as well as encouraging group prayer times. We also plan "events" designed to encourage social interaction and build relationships. These event-activities also provide an ideal setting for which you can invite your friends and neighbors.
These are the ladies that make up this team:
Chair: Jeanne Edison
Secretary: Patricia Reed
Treasurer: Jaci Winship
Event Coordinator: Maribel Dayoub
Assimilation/Care: Ruth Bode
The Women (with a number of children) enjoyed our Summer 2021 "Growing Together" Gathering
We enjoyed a time of reconnecting with friends, delicious desserts, working on a take home plant project and hearing good news from God's Word.

A LOOK BACK
Many of our women and their friends/family had a wonderful time at our Highlands Women's Easter Lunch
It was a great Spring event which included author and speaker CHRISTINE GORDON who shared her message “Resurrection……Return on Investment” Our own KIMBERLI ARMSTRONG shared her beautiful voice as soloist, blessing us with several songs.
A Call to Prayer
We are looking forward to prayer with excitement and hope.
“The Cinderella of the church of today is prayer. This handmaiden of the Lord is unloved and unwooed because she isn’t dripping with the pearls of intellectualism, nor glamorous with the silks of philosophy; neither is she enchanting with the tiara of psychology. She wears only the homemade rags of sincerity and humility.”—Leonard Ravenhill
