Our vision as a women’s ministry is to promote the Biblical mandate to BLOOM! (grow) in Jesus Christ.
You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:17-18
Our BLOOM! Mission statement is seven-fold:
May we BLOOM! in worshiping the LORD.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! Psalms 34:3
May we disciple and equip one another to BLOOM! in the LORD.
May the God of peace equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:21
May we BLOOM! in living and speaking the good news of Jesus Christ.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16
May we BLOOM! as examples to the next generation of women.
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Titus 2:3-5
May we Bloom! in exercising our spiritual gifting for the good of the body of Christ.
Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly. Romans 12:6
May we BLOOM! in generosity and serving those less fortunate.
She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. Proverbs 31:20
May we BLOOM! in excellence rather than mediocrity in the work of the Lord.
Be firm, steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, (excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord) knowing that our labor in the Lord is never wasted nor in vain. 1 Cor 15:58

BLOOM! Summer Book Club
May through August: Volunteers select one book for each month, select a date, and lead the discussion. Whether humorous or serious, our book selections will honor Christ.
Being inspired by Paul in Acts 20:20-21 “teaching you publicly and from house to house (h2h), solemnly testifying….of repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ”, Grace Life women host smaller gatherings in their homes every other year.
BLOOM! Bible Studies
Bible studies for women are offered during the school year. We meet in various homes and locations. This is a wonderful opportunity to BLOOM! in discipleship and fellowship!
BLOOM! XL Event
On the off years, we teach publicly and host an “extra large” gathering for worship, discipleship, and fellowship with the “extraordinary love” of Jesus Christ to area women.
