Tuesdays at 10:00 AM
Co-hosted by Joy Nichols and Pam White
Women of Grace is named in honor of Joy Nichols. She has been a true example of a woman of grace. Through Joy’s example of being a loving mother and wife many women have been influenced to serve God and their families. Over 30 years ago she began meeting with the women of CCI for prayer, worship, and study in the Word of God. From that time she has raised up a strong group of women who know how to pray and stand for the situations in their lives.
Joy has also raised up other women to help her lead the Women of Grace ministry. Pam White is one of those women that has come along side Joy to help minister to women. Pam has been instrumental in handling the day to day details of the department as well as ministering in the meetings. She has a vision to see other women grow in grace and wisdom. Together they lead women in prayer, worship and bible study each week.
Women of all ages are invited to all of our meetings. Our primary meeting is held every Tuesday from 10:00 AM to Noon. During the summer months we meet in the Chapel and the rest of the year we meet in the Parlor. Both rooms are at the south end of the building. The first hour is intercessory prayer for our nation, our church, and our own homes and families. The second hour includes worship and teaching from the Word of God. The spirit of prayer can be caught in this anointed atmosphere. It is a wonderful time of refreshing in the presence of God. Each meeting gives women a chance to develop relationships with other women and receive encouragement for their daily lives. Each teaching session is practical and biblically based. Our women are also involved in financial support of our missionaries to Spain. Several times throughout the year guest ministers are invited in to minister in these meetings. During the school year (Sept. – May) we provide childcare for infants through kindergarten. During the summer months (June – August) we extend that to children up to 5th grade.
In addition to weekly meetings, quarterly we move our meeting to an evening time to allow those with daytime work schedules to join us. These meetings have been rich with the presence of God and provided life changing ministry to all the women of the congregation. These meetings begin with light dinner and fellowship time. Then we have a time of prayer, worship and ministry from the Word of God.
Audio recordings of the Women of Grace meetings are available through the Media Ministry. Call 817-332-1246 for information.
