Women’s Ministry

Mission Statement. The Women’s Ministry of South Run Baptist Church is committed to providing opportunities for women, in every stage of life, to enter a relationship with Jesus Christ and to grow in knowledge of Him.

Scripture

Walk in a Manner Worthy of the Lord:
-Bearing fruit in every good work
-Increasing in the knowledge of God
-Being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might
-Giving thanks to the Father

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” –Colossians 1:9-12

Bible Study

No Other Gods by Kelly Minter (Mondays, 9:45-11:30 am)

Often, idols are obvious – money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of loved ones, Instagrammable interiors, and busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, you’re missing the unrivaled joy and adventure of Jesus being your heart’s ultimate treasure.
Group members will take turns facilitating the discussion.

1 Peter: Living in Hope by Jen Wilkin (Mondays, 7:00-9:00 pm)

In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big-picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.

Brave Honest Questions Women Ask by Angela Thomas Pharr (Wednesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm)

Why can’t I get it together? Am I as invisible as I feel? What am I so afraid of? It takes a brave woman to ask these questions and dig into these topics alongside other believers. We’ve all got insecurities, flaws, and struggles that we’re afraid to address. But if we can be brave enough to raise the questions, God will answer us. You’ve got questions. God’s got answers. Be brave. Ask.

Outreach

Saratoga Staff Love is a focus of one of our local outreach ministries. In our partnership with Saratoga Elementary School, we provide encouragement and show thanks to the staff and teachers by providing occasional meals and special treats throughout the school year.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

MOPS exists to encourage, equip, and help women become the best moms that they can be. Women who are pregnant or have young children (birth through kindergarten) are all invited to join MOPS. MOPS provides an opportunity to meet other moms and make the journey of motherhood together. A typical MOPS meeting includes a time of sharing food and conversation followed by a presentation of information relevant to mothers raising preschoolers. The group covers subjects such as child rearing, marriage, relationships, cooking, and homemaking from a Biblical perspective. Children are cared for during MOPS meetings by childcare staff in a loving, nurturing environment.
