Are you looking for a great way to build relationships with other women and grow deeper in your walk with Christ? Creekside Women’s Ministry is a great place to start! Our goal is to engage with women in every season of life where we strive together to build lives and families that put Christ first in everything that we do. The Women’s Ministry offers Life Classes, retreats, fitness classes, discipleship classes, service projects and special events that will help you develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and other women. Life can be hard, so it’s important to surround yourself with other women who will pray with you, walk beside you, and share in the joy and the hardships with you. Our purpose is to provide opportunities to develop relationships, to promote spiritual growth and to help us, as women, live the abundant life that God promises in His word. Please feel free to email our Women’s Ministry Leader, Traci Mathies with questions.

Description: Come and learn Kay Arthur’s in-depth inductive Bible study method that will make the Word of God come to life. We’re currently studying the Book of Daniel. Does the turmoil in our times, the uprisings and the spiritual decay of many have anything to do with the Book of Daniel? Daniel was a man who knew what God said about the end times. He focused on what God said, not the events of his own time. He had an impact on the people that God placed in his life. How do you live as a Daniel in the crucial days in which you find yourself? How can you dare to be different? How do you get to know God Most High? The Book of Daniel has the answers. Please go to our events page to sign-up! Class started on August 15th.
