Women's Ministry

Each fall and spring, the women's ministry facilitates small group bible study using either a book or video study series. On Monday nights you can expect some time to gather and swap the stories of your week, spend some time reading the bible, asking questions and praying together. If you want to be alerted to new studies, sign up for the women's email list here. If you would like more information about Women’s Ministry please contact us at womensministry@cpcbarn.org.

This study invites us to enter a place of healing and new perspective, as well as a time to go to new places with Jesus and experience him like never before. With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will take us on a visual journey in the Holy Land to some of the places where people of the Bible such as Hannah, David, and even Jesus lived and walked. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.

Have you picked up the Bible looking for encouragement, only to feel more distant from the God it speaks of? Have you listened to someone else’s passionate prayer and longed for the kind of closeness they seem to have with God? 

Busyness, numbness, and so many other things get in-between us and experiencing nearness with Christ. The good news is that God has given us very simple tools that will help us experience His presence in the ordinary everyday moments of our lives. These are the tried-and-true tools used by the Church for thousands of years to draw near to God and experience the full, abundant life He calls us to. It’s when we choose these things that we experience Him, and when we do that, everything changes.

This study is intended to be immensely practical. The spiritual disciplines are where theology meets everyday life, but only you can put them into practice in your life. Our hope is that you will try each of the twelve disciplines we’ll cover. The spiritual disciplines aren’t meant to simply be studied. They are meant to be done. Their power is in their practice.
