Relationships are essential in the life of the believer, and women especially enjoy getting together with other women! We have several opportunities at Countryside for women to learn more about God’s Word with other women, to grow in their personal spiritual walk with Christ, and to connect with other Christian women.
Women’s Sunday School Class
Ladies 18 years old and above are invited to meet with us as we enjoy having a time to connect with other ladies, pray for one another, study the Word of God, and encourage one another in our personal walks with the Lord. We vary the format, sometimes studying a book of the Bible and other times reading and discussing topical books. We welcome any lady, young or old, new or established to join our class. We’d love to get to know you as we study God’s Word and learn to know and enjoy Jesus Christ our Lord together.
Women’s Bible Study
It is important for women to know Scripture because it forms the foundation for our lives. Countryside’s Women’s Ministry seeks to offer a variety of rich, edifying studies during the daytime and evening that will benefit women of all ages and stages of life. Please see the Women’s Ministry flyer in the Welcome Center for current offerings.
Encouraged Hearts Gatherings
Countryside’s Women’s Ministry hosts quarterly fellowships, which we call “Encouraged Hearts.” At these gatherings, women age 16 and older come together to learn and share through a variety of formats that may include testimonies, teaching, singing, small groups, prayer, or panel discussions — all focused on the Word of God. It’s a wonderful way to get to know other women in all seasons of life and look for opportunities to encourage and build relationships.
We are currently exploring the riches of Scripture under the theme of “The Greatest Love Story.” We hope you’ll join us during our next several gatherings as we look at God’s love and then learn how we are to respond in love to God and others.
Retreats are always a fun, encouraging, and spiritually refreshing time! Young women are invited to come as well, as we desire to encourage one another in Christ as well as build mentoring relationships. We hope every woman can come! This year our Fall Ladies Retreat will be held at Rock Springs Ranch on Sept. 20- Sept 21st. Our theme is Grounded and Rooted in Love and we will be enjoying the beauty of God’s creation at the retreat center, fun and sweet fellowship as well as rich teaching from God’s word. This will be a sweet time to refresh, renew, and revive spiritually, personally, and corporately and grow closer to God together!

Bridal and Baby Showers
At Countryside, we love to rejoice with those who are rejoicing. A church- wide shower is given for a young woman member who is getting married as well as for a first-time mother at our church. It is an opportunity for all of us to share in this happy time with those in our church family who are experiencing God’s blessing in their life. It’s also a great way to get to know other women! It’s always a very special occasion, with decorations, food, and a devotional. Several women also pray for the new bride or mom to be blessed and to follow God in their new role. Being a part of each other’s lives and sharing in these wonderful milestones encourages sisterly affections.
