The Women’s Ministry seeks to:

Welcome all women to Sycamore as Christ has welcomed us.

I commend to you our sister…that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, (Romans 16:1-2a ESV)

Do life together.

 …and help her in whatever she may need from you, (Romans 16:2b ESV)

Help women grow in their relationship with Christ.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith… (Colossians 2:6-7a NIV)

Help women understand and fulfill Christ’s purpose in their lives.

We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work… (Colossians 1:9b-10a NIV)

Walk each other faithfully to our ultimate home.

For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. (Hebrews 13:14 NLT)

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Ways to get involved:

Bible Study

Join us for our January 2022 Bible studies!  We have one Wednesday morning study beginning on February 2nd at 10 AM with fellowship, snacks, and a short devotion with the Pastor before heading to the studies at 10:30 AM.

  • “Gentle & Lowly” taught by Lydia Martin.

We also offer a Tuesday evening study led by Maryann Whitaker, discussing J.I. Packer’s book, ‘Praying the Lord’s Prayer’ at her Liz Moore office at 6:30 PM. This study began on Tuesday, January 18th.

More information on the studies:

Gentle & Lowly:

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done—but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” In Gentle and Lowly, Dane Ortlund reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who Jesus is for sinners and sufferers today.

 

Praying the Lord’s Prayer

Praying is a problem for many people. Christians often go through the motions of prayer because it is expected of them, but they are often left wondering, “Did God hear me? Does he even care?”

In Praying the Lord’s Prayer, an excerpt from Growing in Christ, J. I. Packer presents a powerful truth: prayer is a natural activity between the Heavenly Father and his children. As Packer works through each phrase of Christ’s pattern of prayer, you’ll begin to grasp the basic principles and guidelines of prayer. As you apply these truths to your prayer life, you’ll experience more intimate communication with your Father in heaven.

 

Lunches

Sharing a meal is a wonderful way to deepen relationships with fellow women in our church family. We often eat lunch together after Wednesday morning bible study. A restaurant location is announced that morning and all are invited to join!

Baby Showers

We love to celebrate babies at Sycamore! It is a special time filled with food, games, and lots of laughter. Announcements will be shared with the church congregation about upcoming baby showers.

Fall Retreat

Every year the Women’s Ministry Team hosts an in-town weekend retreat.

Our 2022 Retreat will be held at Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond the weekend of Nov 4-6. More information on the subject and speaker will be posted soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars and hold the date to join us in this very special time of study, prayer and fellowship!
Prayer Meeting and Requests
There will be a prayer meeting every first Friday of the month at 10:30-12:30pm at Sycamore church in the Parlor to pray for many of the concerns and needs we have as women of this congregation and as part of the family of God. We invite all women to join us in this prayer endeavor or if you have a prayer request that you would like this group to lift up in prayer please send it to Beth Sheffield at [email protected]. Confidential prayer requests can be marked as such in the e-mail and will only be shared with the core team.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6

Other Events & Activities

Throughout the year, we offer other opportunities to serve and spend time with other women in the church as well as others in the community. Announcements about these opportunities are made through Ministry Moments or our church newsletter. Stay tuned!
