Women caring for women is the heart of our ministry. We are created for friendship with God and one another, and there is no better place to discover both of these than Village. You’ll find practical support, spiritual guidance and genuine acceptance to help you navigate life’s realities, responsibilities and relationships. Whether you participate in an ongoing ministry (The Well or one of our women only Life Groups), or simply enjoy the company of other women hiking, quilting or at a special event, you’ll be revived and encouraged as you pursue the many roles God has given you.

Bible Study

Summer Book Study

Go for it! Making Your Life Count for God

Tuesdays  – May 23 – June 27, 2017

This six week study, written by Villager Poppy Smith, will help you see that God has a plan and purpose for your life. Each week Poppy will teach a large group session and then we’ll break into small groups to discuss the interactive homework questions and pray for each other.  This study will help you answer the questions: “Who am I? Who is God? and How does He want to use me?”

Cost is $15 and includes workbook. Childcare is not available

AM Session 10 – 11:30 am – register here

PM Session 7 – 8:30 pm – register here

Contact Jen Spickelmier or Barbie Grey with questions.



The Well is our school year Bible study and is a unique place where women of all ages and cultures come together to “drink deeply” from the word of God. As we study Scripture together, we grow in our relationship with Christ and create authentic bonds with one another in which we are valued, equipped, and encouraged to live a life worthy of God’s calling. Each weekly session involves a time of worship, large group study, small group discussion, prayer, and fellowship.

 The Well is over for this school year. Plan on joining us in the fall for a study on the Gospel of John. Registration for the 2017-18 year will begin at the end of August.
