Women of Hope

Women of Hope Grimes

Hope’s Women’s Ministry is for women of all ages and life stages – come as you are, be your authentic self and deepen your own faith alongside like-minded women. We host a number of events each year, including The Gathering for Women, Bible and book studies, and opportunities to serve in our church and community together.

Our theme for the 2022-23 ministry year, which runs from September through May, is “Real Faith for Real Life,” focusing on the ways we bring our faith into our daily lives and the challenges women face in today’s culture and world.

Getting Connected

Women’s Ministry sends a monthly e-newsletter with upcoming events and opportunities to serve and connect. We also communicate via text for announcements, prayer requests and care needs. Connect with us on Facebook for the latest news, uplifting messages and Scripture, fun photos of our events, and to be alerted when we go live on video.

New to Hope Grimes, new to church, or new to women’s activities? We want to know you! Sign up to receive communications here.

The Gathering for Women

The Gathering is a time for Women of Hope Grimes to come together in fellowship for music, prayer, connection and a message from guest speakers. Each month is different, but you can always count on yummy snacks and time to laugh and connect. Check out our Facebook page or online calendar for the latest on upcoming topics and speakers. This event is open to all women – whether you are a member of the greater Hope family or just want to check it out, you're very welcome here! It's a great chance to get to know the other ladies in our community.
