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).

Luke includes many incidents in the life of Christ which are not found in the other gospels, making it the most complete. He stresses Christ’s manhood, Christ as the perfect Man, as the Son of Man. Of all the gospels, this is the one which will draw your heart to respond to Jesus call, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

“First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree”
Redondo Beach | Wednesdays | 9:30am | 12-Week Study
Cost: $20 (includes book)
Leaders: Linda Goy & Lorie Chaykowski
Begins Wednesday, September 14th

Relationships are messy. Sometimes we struggle to get along, especially when there is disagreement. Often we find ourselves divided–even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this 6-week study, we will explore Paul’s letter to learn how we are to deal with differences and divisions–whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We’ll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Christ, and we’ll unpack what this means and how we can living it out day by day.
