Women's Ministry

About this Ministry

In keeping with the DABC purpose statement, our women’s ministry seeks to share the love of Christ with the women of our church and community. We do this through Bible studies, fellowship events, and ministry opportunities.

Ways to Get Involved

Women's Bible Studies

Ladies’ Precept Bible Study:

Led by Marilyn Meyer. Precept Ladies’ Bible Study meets on
Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12 in the Fellowship Hall. The format
is a guided discussion period followed by a teaching video by Kay
Arthur who with her husband founded Precept Ministries. Precept
Bible Study is in an in-depth Bible study that teaches you how to
study the Word of God using the inductive study method. By
developing a skill set in inductive study while being guided by our
resident teacher, the Holy Spirit, you learn how to study the Bible
for yourself. It does involve a commitment of a minimum of 5 hours
of personal study per week. The rewards are well worth the effort!
The Lord will bless you with a deeper understanding of His Word
and a growing relationship with Him, as well as the joy of
fellowship with one another and the support that comes through
prayer and love for one another. The overall objective of Precept
Ministries: Know God Deeply. Live Differently.

Mom2Mom

ministry geared towards encouraging mothers and creating an
environment for fellowship. We meet to eat, hang out, and gain wisdom
from one another.

led by our very own ladies. We have had instruction on pie making, bread
baking, container gardening, jam making, photography, quilting, and many other skills. We will host a preview where you will learn what will be
offered and when.

Hands Creating Comfort

Organized by Nancy Svendson. Like Dorcas in Acts 9:36-42, we use our
resources & talents to meet the needs of people. Using donations, HCC
provides space and equipment for all to use. Quilts, blankets, afghans,
hats, scarves, gloves, etc., are donated to pregnancy centers, nursing
homes, schools, hospice centers, shelters, and anyone in our church
family or community who might benefit from a bit of encouragement. We also teach anyone who wishes to learn how to sew, crochet or knit. We
meet on the 2nd & 4th Fridays each month from 10-2, and are run as an
open house – come when you can, leave when you must.

requests, followed by a time of prayer. We meet the 2nd Sunday of each
month at 4:30 pm in Room 101. We welcome any interested grandmother,
