Welcome to Christ Community Church Women's page. Here you'll find info on the events & happenings of our women's ministry.
A Note about COVID-19
Due to social distancing and group gathering restrictions for Spring 2020, our women's ministry has made some changes to our usual fellowship/meeting patterns. Below is a list of what we're doing for Spring 2020.
Typical Women's Ministry Events
Bible Studies: In the fall and spring, we usually offer a Scripture-based study to encourage our women and deepen their understanding of the Word of God. While we are not offering a group study for the summer, our denomination is offering a wonderful (and low-cost) option for women, which can be joined via online meeting or social media (to maintain social distancing guidelines). Check out the PCA Women's Hinged Bible study for Summer 2020 focusing on Ephesians. Teaching videos for this series will be posted each Friday, June through August, and books are available for purchase online. Questions? Contact Caroline.
Fellowship Events: We usually offer 1-2 social/fellowship events each quarter. In the past, we've done dinners out, craft nights, household goods "swaps," and other fun events. These are usually offered on a one-time basis. Keep checking this page for future events!
Conferences/Training: Usually once/year we plan or join a local conference for training and encouragement. Our last conference was Nancy Guthrie's Biblical Theology Workshop for women (Feb 2020). The next local conference is the women's Hinged conference set for September 18-19, 2020 at Briarwood Church.
Summer Potlucks: In the summers, our women usually meet twice a month for a good, old-fashioned (but often with paleo or low carb options) potluck! Potlucks kick off at 7pm and end when the mosquitoes eat more than we do. Due to COVID-19, our summer potlucks have been cancelled. We may have ONE social-distancing BYO dinner event. Check our Facebook page for details.
CCC Women on social media
FACEBOOK: To get the latest up-to-date info on any of the below events, please check out our CCC Women's main Facebook page for details, event pages, and more info. Many of our women's ministry events include fellowships (dinners, hangouts), ministry events (packing parties for The Well-House or Shelby County Foster Parents' Assoc), and the occasional retreat.
MOM'S PLAYGROUP: All CCC members/attenders/visitors who are moms can and should join our Facebook group. We post impromptu playdates (usually in/around Helena/Pelham/Alabaster), outings, requests for recommendations, names of sitters, free clothes/toys, etc. on this page. IT IS LIFE SAVING + HELPFUL to moms!...even older moms...as (ahem) a few of us are. You can just read the posts, or join the conversation & offer up some of your own gently used items. Seriously, don't buy another toddler bike...someone in this group will have a loaner for you. See you in the group! To ask to join this group, you may contact Caroline, Rebecca, or Heather (group admins).
