Collective

Changepoint women

A collection of lay-led women’s ministries for all ages, walks of life
and spiritual journeys.

Based on  the Biblical mandate that older women (both physically and spiritually)  should be mentoring and teaching the younger women, and the younger women should seek out this kind of relationship, ChangePoint Women’s Collective’s vision is 2 fold:
  1. To provide opportunity to all women to connect, journey together and grow along side of one another
  2. To undergird, resource and represent the current ministries already working and running by lay-women  in our church
With more than 30 years of ministry experience, veteran disciplemaker Dr. Jana Sundene offers concrete advice for anyone who shepherds others.

Dr. Sundene emphasizes relational rhythms of discernment, intentionality and reflection to meet emerging people where they are at and then to walk with them further into the Christlife.

You won’t want to miss the Mid-Winter Gathering if:

You are a new Christian and exploring your next steps of discipleship
You are involved in discipling others, of any age
You are wanting to grow is what you already know of discipleship

Cost: $20
We will broadcasting the 2023 IF:Gathering on Saturday March 4th 9am - 4pm.  
IF:2023 Is an event where women all over the world gather together, get equipped, and discover the next step in their calling: to go and make disciples.  
There will be over 30 different speakers from all walks of life to hear from.
 Cost is $55.  Childcare will be provided for a small fee.

Women's  Studies

Bible Study Hall

Date:  Starting January 11th
Time: 10:00-11:30 am
Location:  This year we will go through Proverbs and James together, making our ears attentive to wisdom, inclining our hearts to understanding and crying out for discernment (Proverbs 2:2-3). Whether you are new to reading the Bible on your own or you have been doing it for years, you are welcome in this group. There is no homework and no additional book required. A Bible will be provided if you need one. Childcare is available for a cost. Please join us as we look into what God is teaching us about Himself and how that should impact the way we live. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)  If you have any questions contact Niccole Van Peursem.


Women's Ongoing Community

Date: February 1st
Time: 9:30-11:30am
Location: Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life - a new study by Jennifer Rothschild

Amos is often called a prophet of doom! Through his pronouncements of judgment, we can see what happens when we don’t live the God life. Yet, within each bleak condemnation, is a tacit invitation to seek God so we can live the good life. Amos is promoting the God life, and the God life is the good life!

Through this study, you’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. Ultimately, you’ll be invited to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4).


Childcare is available for a small fee upon registration.
Contact Helen Ann Anderson with questions.

Women's Community - Morning

Women's Community - Evening

Date: January 11th
Time: 6:30-8:30pm
Location: Join us for a the 3 part "Known By Name" Bible study, of Naomi, Hagar and Rahab. The Known by Name series approaches Bible study in a whole new way. By looking at complex women in the Bible through three very different lenses—a dramatist (Nicole Johnson), a counselor (Kasey Van Norman), and a Bible teacher (Jada Edwards)—these studies really get to the bottom of some life’s toughest questions and the very real struggles that accompany them. Naomi- When I Feel Worthless, God Says I’m Enough When you go through trauma, loss, and hardship, God remains close. He can and will redeem even the darkest circumstances. Hagar- In the Face of Rejection, God Says I’m Significant Even when life doesn’t affirm you, God does. What is unresolved is not unseen by God. Rahab -Don’t Judge Me; God Says I’m Qualified Shed unhelpful labels and fears, and instead revel in God’s unconditional love and acceptance of you—just as you are. You can be free from shame and doubt.

Cost is $15 to cover coffee and supplies. In your confirmation email there will be a link to order your books and a link if you need to register for KidsClub .

Living Grace Groups

Date: 2nd and 4th Sunday Night of every month
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 pm
Location: Alliance Bible Church
 For many of us, this past year has been unexpected, exhausting, and stressful. We are more isolated, more anxious, more fearful, and fighting to know that God is present even in the darkest of moments. We have been holistically impacted: physically, emotionally, financially, culturally, mentally, relationally, and spiritually.

How can we still experience personal and communal growth in the midst of our struggles and exhaustion?
Mental and emotional health difficulties and disorders impact the whole person and require holistic discipleship. We need spaces that offer an integrated approach to caring for our physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational experiences.

This is not a quick fix, not about achieving perfection, but about a faithful and patient journey of hope. These groups are intended to let grace be our guide as we walk toward greater mental health resiliency and life renewal.

Each week, we will take time in our small group to dive into biblical stories of struggle and hope, learn helpful clinical insights, and explore resources and practical tools designed to provide healthy solutions for your heart and mind with additional opportunities to transform your daily life.

Note: These groups are not clinical or therapy support groups, nor are they intended to take the place of any professional medical service, counsel, or practice.

These groups can support those who are already receiving professional care and we encourage participants to seek out professional care when needed.

Cost: Free, In Person
