The purpose of Women in the Church is that every woman know Christ personally and be committed to extending His kingdom in her life, home, church, community and throughout the world.
The WIC team coordinates women’s ministry at Heartland with this purpose in mind.
This ministry includes:
Communications: WIC-related news relevant to the church body is communicated through the website, bulletin, monthly newsletter, weekly enews, bulletin boards, Facebook, and announcements, to keep our members better connected and informed.
Conference & Retreat: Two special weekends of excellent Biblical teaching, meaningful worship, and sweet fellowship with our sisters and our God are planned each year. In the fall, the retreat is focused on restful reflection, testimonies, and fellowship. For the conference in the spring, a speaker is usually brought in for a more focused teaching time.
Fellowship: At least twice each year, ladies’ gatherings are planned to encourage fellowship, fun, and inspiration. These are for Heartland women and their friends outside the church. Past fellowships have included book reviews, tea time, testimonies, music presentations, Bible study previews, biography night, etc.
Hostess: The use of the church kitchen is coordinated for events such as showers, funeral dinners, receptions, Presbytery, and Pot Providence, as well as providing access to the Events Storage Room by request. Many volunteer opportunities are available.
Outreach: Outreach opportunities are organized for Heartland to serve the community and our neighborhood school, Clark Elementary. Tutoring, classroom assistants, faculty lunches, game days, backpack filling, coat donations, Thanksgiving baskets, etc. are all great service opportunities.
Service & Care: Short-term needs in the church are met by organizing meals and childcare. Bridal and baby showers are overseen as well.
Spiritual Growth: Women’s Bible studies, prayer groups, mentoring and discipleship--areas which help us as women grow in our faith--are overseen. At least two different women’s Bible studies are offered each fall and spring. Both provide childcare.
