Cultivate a Christ-centered sisterhood

Our Women’s Ministry exists so that we might come to know God, ourselves and our sisters in Christ more intimately. Our hope is that each woman at OCF may experience the LOVE and GRACE of God, who calls us His beloved daughters. We desire to find our grounding in Christ and to live out of this grounding as a response to God’s love for us. We invite you to come be a part of what God is doing in the hearts of our women.

Women have more responsibility in society than ever before. We work, support, educate, and raise children. Learning how to balance our busy lives and still live Christ-centered takes practice. Together we can grow stronger and build each other up.

In order to help one another become this kind of woman, the Women’s Ministry at OCF offers large group get-togethers (for making initial connections), small groups (for instruction, discussion and growth), and one-on-one discipleship (for accountability and encouragement).

Opportunities to Connect & Grow

Psalms: Pouring Your Heart Out to God (Disciplers Study)
Leader: Tracy Olson
Mondays, Starting September 23rd | 6:30pm-8:30pm | Cost: $35
NO childcare is available

The lessons on Psalms were written to give an overview and introduction to the various types of Psalms and to help you feel more at home in navigating and understanding the book. The Psalms help us express our gratitude and praise to God, but they also help us know how to approach God when we have questions, concerns, troubles, and hurts. As you study the Psalms, you will find praise on every page of the book and it will help you to put praise on every page of your life.

Judges & Ruth: Godly Living in Ungodly Times (Disciplers Study)
Leaders: Casey Schramm & Leah Hutchison
Wednesdays, Starting September 25th | 9:30am-11:30am | Cost: $35
Childcare is available through 5th Grade

Spend twenty-one weeks with us as we study and discuss Judges & Ruth. Judges takes place after the death of the great and godly leader, Joshua. Israel was just getting settled into their inheritance in the Promised Land. It should have been a hopeful time, but it became a sad, repetitious cycle of sin, discipline by God, crying out to God, and deliverance. It is a story of man’s failure and God’s faithfulness.

The little book of Ruth, on the other hand, gives another picture of life during this time and is like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Ruth, a young Moabite woman and widow of a man of Israel, clings to her mother-in-law and God rather than her homeland and its idols. These are her faithful and touching words to Naomi, Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.

Leader: Theresa Schlueter
OCF | 2nd & 4th Saturdays | 6:30am

The eye-popping, early hour is purposeful, allowing busy wives to participate in family activities. This focused hour of prayer will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed (always a benefit to husbands). There is no beginning or end to this group – you can join in anytime (no registration required). It is also not critical that you make every prayer session.
