At First, we serve women of all ages. Our heart and soul is to introduce and connect you to Jesus Christ, the one and only living God. It is our desire to help you find a place to study the Word of God and equip you to use the gifts that God has given to impact your world for Christ. Whether you are single, married, divorced, or widowed, we hope that our Women's Ministry is a nurturing environment where all can Begin, Belong, and Become in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We offer Bible Studies and Ministries throughout the week and throughout the year. See below for the current studies and/or ministries being offered.

Teen Mother Choices
EQUIPPING ~ EMPOWERING ~ IMPACTING
Teen Mother Choices (TMC) of Crown Point is a program for young moms between the ages of 15-23 who are already a parent to a child. The mission of Teen Mother Choices is to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ to teenage mothers and their children, while equipping and empowering them to become independant, functioning members of the community. We create a safe space for these moms and children to grow on a weekly basis. Free childcare and dinner are provided!
There are 4 components to TMC that each mom must uphold:
-Attending weekly life-skills workshops
-Active participation with a one on one mentor
-Practical goal setting
-Diligently working with a financial counselor from Thrivent Financial
If each mom is following through with these 4 components, this program will help her with weekly child-care costs or she may choose to put that money towards furthering her education.
Each mom stays with the program on an average of 3 years until she is considered self-sufficient. This means she has a stable job, is paying her bills on time and can fully support herself and her child(ren). If you have any questions or would like to learn how to be a part of this program, please contact Program Coordinator, Janell Rottier, at the email or phone number provided below.

Women's Study: The Power of Forgiveness
1st & 3rd Wednesdays
9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Kids Center
When a root of bitterness springs up over wrongdoing, it can grow deep in the human heart. When relationships strain and die and pain lingers, the power of forgiveness brings hope, healing, and restoration. These six lessons help believers to (re)open their hearts to God's forgiveness and to grow in the grace of forgiving others.
