The Women’s Ministry at Swift Creek provides opportunities for YOU to get to know other women who will encourage your growing relationship with the Lord. This ministry is all about bringing glory to God through our lives. The values we teach come straight from His Word, such as those found in Proverbs 31 and 1 Peter 3. We believe that a godly woman is one who is committed to walking the path God has for her. We seek to learn more about the Lord in order to become all He has designed us to be and to put feet to our increasing faith. We strive to provide studies that will strengthen each woman’s walk with the Lord, opportunities for women to use their God-given gifts in ministry, and evangelical opportunities for women to invite the lost.
This is a place where women can come and develop lasting relationships with sisters in Christ. We hope 2016 will be a year for building relationships with other women and uniting under the umbrella Christ Jesus. The Women’s Ministry team is hard at work developing great opportunities for all of us to grow closer to God and closer to each other. We are so thrilled to meet you and take this journey together with you. Look for ongoing opportunities on the bulletin boards located on campus, our church Facebook page, and in the church bulletin.

How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird
by Amy Lively
Book Cost: $3.00

This book will help you overcome fears about getting to know your neighbors and sharing your faith. You’ll learn simple, practical ways to get to know your neighbors, using your God-given personality. As you venture out of the comfort of your living room and into the lives of your neighbors, you’ll form authentic friendships, create a safer community, and find fulfillment in obeying Christ’s #2 command.
by Vicki Courtney
Book Cost – $13.00 (Also available at LifeWay)
July 10-August 14 (6 sessions)
Happily Ever After is not defined by the message of fairy tales and “chick flicks” that leave us with a sugar coated version of reality. The truth is that marriage and motherhood are difficult, but we can depend upon the fact that Christ meets us on that journey and He alone is the answer to the happily-ever-after we long for.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
- Jonah by Priscilla Shirer
Bible Study (open to all women)
First, third, and fifth Thursdays in 207 EG, 9:30am-12pm
Starting January 19 (7 sessions)
What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this study, interruption is redefined as actually being God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city. Book cost: $13
