"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of God!"1 John 3:1
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 will know and 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.
For more general information regarding Women's Ministry, please contact Nicole Dunaetz.
STAR Studies for Women
OCF | Wednesdays 9:30am-11:30am | Cost: $35Childcare is provided.
This is an 8-week study that explores the need for forgiveness and mercy in our lives and the role that second chances and new beginnings play in healing our spirits and our relationships. Please contact Casey Schramm for more details.
Disciplers Study: Genesis - The Beginning
Genesis is the story of the Earth’s origin and of God’s blessing upon one man and his family and through them the whole earth. In Genesis we meet and get to know the struggles and triumphs of this man and his family. They were men and women like us, ordinary people with significant shortcomings. But they also had faith in God. Genesis depicts how each one’s faith made all the difference. To join this group, please contact Casey Schramm.
Beautiful Mess - A Bible Study for Moms of Babies
We have lots of new babies here at OCF, and we are excited to be starting a small group for new moms! During this study, you will be encouraged to keep your focus on God as you navigate the joys and pitfalls of motherhood. The lessons will empower you with the knowledge that God designed you specifically for your children. This group meets weekly at OCF, and once a month we’ll meet at different fun locations for casual fellowship time. To join this group, register here.
Prayer Project Group*
The Prayer Group is a bit different from other STAR studies. In this group, we will be using Scripture, prayer, and journaling as a means of meeting with God. Each week you will be sent a "prayer project" which you will use to spend 30 minutes to an hour, one day-a-week with the Lord. You would journal either during or after about your time with God. When you come to the group on Wednesday mornings, each person will share their experience. *This group is currently full.
OCF | Thursdays 6:30pm-8:30pm | Cost: $35Childcare is not provided.
Disciplers Study: John - The Son of God
The subject of John's gospel is the deity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only begotten of the Father, by whom all things were made. He is the One who brings life and He came to declare God to us. As we read and study John, we'll discovered that Jesus' deity is revealed in every chapter and rejoice at the end that He is raised from the dead. Then humbly respond to the call, which went to Peter, for it also goes out to us, You follow Me (John 21:22). To join this group, please contact Casey Schramm.
Life Principles from the Women of the BibleOff-Site| Tuesdays 7pm-9pm | Cost: $20 | Beginning May 2nd
The women of the Bible play an integral, essential and crucial role in the eternal plan of God. From heaven's point of view, women are always unique, matchless, and irreplaceable - they are never to be found in a subservient ranking within the kingdom of God. As this study shows, these Women of the Bible (Book 1) demonstrate to us the lofty ideals of faith and faithfulness, virtues and values, brains and beauty, redemption and resourcefulness, servanthood and sacrifice. Registration is now open! For more information, please contact Kelly Olson.
