Women

Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in days to come.

Proverbs 31:25

The Women's Ministry at MCF is a welcoming, loving group of women who are hungry for the Word of God.  We gather for Bible Study, Crafting Days, and Women's Retreats & Conferences.  In all we do, we are grateful for the love of God and wish to share that love with all of those around us.

Women's Bible Study

Quotes from the books
Women's Ministry Book Club, has read:

"Everything Sad is Untrue" by Daniel Nayeri
“Dear reader, you have to understand the point of all these stories. What they add up to. Schererazade was trying to make the king human again. She made him love life by showing him all of it, the funny parts about poop, the dangerous parts with demons, even the boring parts about what makes marriages last.
Little by little, he began to feel the joy and sadness of others.
He became less immune, less numb, because of the stories.”

"Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret" by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor
"The secret of overcoming lay in daily, hourly fellowship with God; and this, he found, could only be maintained by secret prayer and feeding upon the Word through which He reveals Himself to the waiting soul.”

"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens
“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!”

"Anne of Green Gables" by Lucy Maud Montgomery
“When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does.”

"Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell
“There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham - all a sham, James, and it won't stand when things come to be turned inside out and put down for what they are.”

"The Four Loves" by C.S. Lewis
“God, who needs nothing, loves into existence wholly superfluous creatures in order that He may love and
perfect them."

"Silas Marner" by George Eliot
"Men are led away from threatening destruction: a hand is put into theirs, which leads them forth gently towards a calm and bright land, so that they look no more backward; and the hand may be a little child's.”

"The Pursuit of God" by A.W. Tozer
“When the eyes of the soul looking out meet the eyes of God looking in, heaven has begun right here on this earth.”

"The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom
“Sure enough, in their own time and their own way, people worked out the deep pain within them. It most often started, as Betsie had known it would, in the garden."

"Leaf" by J.R.R. Tolkien
“He was kindhearted, in a way. You know the sort of kind heart: it made him uncomfortable more often than it made him do anything; and even when he did anything, it did not prevent him from grumbling, losing his temper and swearing (mostly to himself).”

"Till We Have Faces" by C.S. Lewis
“Death opens a door out of a little, dark room (that's all the life we have known before it) into a great, real place where the true sun shines and we shall meet.”
Our Tuesday Morning Women's Bible Study is at 10:30am in the MCF Worship Center.
