To be a woman in today’s world is a tough endeavour, no matter the season of life. The pressures of singleness, marriage, family, career, and/or community certainly stretch us. But, we don’t have to walk through the pressures and challenges alone.
We believe in Women at Abbotsford Vineyard. We believe in the beauty and strength and callings that God has placed in the hearts of women and we want to be a community that celebrates and supports each other through all of the seasons of life. We want to equip women to find their God-given gifts and to use them to serve wherever and in whatever capacity God has called them.
Our hope is that women are able to experience friendship and encouragement with one another within our church community. We aim is to provide opportunities through which women can connect and grow, opportunities to serve and receive help, to love and be loved in a community of women seeking the Lord together.
Meets every other Thursday morning from 9:30-11:30 am. Women of all ages are invited to come and pray together. For more information contact Marilyn Peters
If you are expecting a baby (and the Abbotsford Vineyard is your church home) we would love to hear from you! We have some wonderful women who would love to prepare meals for you to help make the transition of bringing your baby home as smooth as possible. We also have gift baskets for Mom and baby and would love to set aside a time to pray for you and bless you both. For more information contact Lisa Stephens
Flourish is a new ministry designed to provide a safe place for Moms to connect with one another, to be encouraged, and to be equipped with practical insights and strategies to make the role of raising children just a little bit easier.
Come out and connect with others on the journey of Motherhood. Enjoy an evening of conversation without being interrupted, praying with one another, possibly slowly drinking some coffee or tea at the right temperature, and hearing some practical wisdom for this unique and significant season of your life.
Motherhood is a unique adventure and Flourish is designed for mothers in all different places in that journey, especially the early years. For more information please contact Deanna VanWoudenberg
