Women's Ministry

Welcome to the Women of the Advent!

Women's Ministry 9But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect
1 Peter 3:15

Whether you are new to the church or a longtime member, no matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, there is a place for you to study, serve, gather, and grow within this active and vibrant community of women. Small groups and Bible studies, monthly events and fellowship groups, service opportunities within the church and out in our city, as well as an annual weekend retreat…these are just a few of the ways you can get involved in Women’s Ministry at the Advent. Our hope is for each woman to be involved in meaningful ways that will challenge, equip, and encourage her until the good work our Lord has begun is brought to completion at the day of Christ Jesus.

Women's Ministry 10Please let me know how I can help.

In Christ,
Leslie Housman
Director of Women’s Ministries

An evening with Kelsi Klembara

Women's Ministry 11Join us Wednesday, March 13 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at Cranmer House to hear Kelsi Klembara, writer, podcaster, and online content manager for 1517. She will speak on “Theology of the Body: How God Redeems All of Us.” In a world that either glorifies or demeans our bodies, as Christians, how are we meant to view our bodies in light of Christ’s redemption? We’ll explore what Scripture has to say about our physical forms and the good news that God’s promises for us are tied to the embodiment of our Savior. Appropriate for women in every stage of life, this would also be a great mother/daughter outing (for girls high school and older.)


Kelsi is the host of Outside Ourselves, a videocast featuring conversations about God’s gift of faith and what it means for saving faith to stand outside of our works and abilities. Kelsi is also the co-editor of Theology of the Cross: Luther’s Heidelberg Disputation & Reflections on Its 28 Theses

There is no cost for this event, but to help us plan for seating, please register at the link below, through your Realm account, or by contacting Janet Dozier at the church office.

Bible Study | Women at Work

Women's Ministry 12The truth is, all women work! Women at Work Bible study is an opportunity to get to know women in different ages and stages of life, to share in the joys and struggles of the work each has been given in the context of scripture study. 
Our fall study examined what Proverbs 31 tells us about how the Lord has equipped women for work. Join us this spring for “Busy vs. Hurry.” Caroline Daw, Pam Simpson, Mary Bradley Anderson, and Julie Ogard will draw from a variety of scripture to show participants what it means to live a life on mission for God. 
The study will meet on Tuesday evenings for four weeks, February 27 to March 19, at Cranmer House, 2814 Linden Avenue. Gather at 6:00 p.m. for fellowship and dinner (provided!). Teaching begins promptly at 6:30 and we will wrap up at 7:30.
