What is Vineyard Women’s Ministry?
The Vineyard Women’s Ministry was birthed in the Summer of 2015. Since that time, women have gathered for three studies a year. One in the Spring, Summer and Fall, which last approximately 7 weeks each, with a general focus on studying a book in the Bible or topics on Christian living.
Towards the end of each session we cry out to God in prayer for direction on where He is leading us to go into the next season. We are open to the Lord’s direction each semester and willing to alter the current pattern if He desires us to have a different focus or time table.
What is the Vision of Vineyard Women’s Ministry?
The vision and intense prayer of the Vineyard Women’s Ministry is to gather women from all walks of life and share in the nurturing love and wisdom of the Lord Jesus Christ through fellowship and the study of His word. To create an environment of vulnerability and the pursuit of holiness. A place where women can go and receive “sanctuary”.
How Can I Get Involved?
Women are invited to join us for our seasonal studies which occur on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. Currently, we do not provide childcare, but children are welcome to come under the supervision of their mom or other care giver. Join our Facebook Group Rise Up Women of Faith for up to date information about what is going on.
We are starting off with a service opportunity September 27th for the Cornell International Student Fellowship -CICF (dinner/study gathering). This group meets at Bethel Grove every Friday thoughout the semester to help provide an outlet for internationals to get to know Jesus. All are welcome. The time commitment will probably be from 5:30 to 8:30 approximately, just that one night. Let's gather a good representation from our women's group to help cook/serve/participate in their meeting that night. Soups, served with bread/butter and a simple salad would be the easiest and heart warming option. Serving together is a great way to grow closer and the point is the people from CICF get to know YOU. Please RSVP to Betty Davis if you think you can help out even if you can't attend.
Beginning the first Wednesday in October at 7:00 pm, at the Vineyard Church of Ithaca, we will be discussing and praying through the book of Romans. No book is required, just a Bible (the study will go through until Nov. 20th). If you want to deepen your study time, it is recommend purchasing "Be Right, Romans" study book by Wiersbe.
