Women’s Ministry

Our goal is for every woman to have a place of love, acceptance and support where she can talk, laugh, cry, process and journey through life  with others.   You are invited into a journey of intentional growth, building strong community as we pursue deeper devotion to Jesus Christ through friendship, activities, extending ourselves to each other and our community, Bible studies and classes which minister to heart-felt needs.

Contact Gloria Bremner, Women’s Ministries Director, for more information.

Richard Foster once wrote that for the early Christians, “prayer was no little habit tacked on to the periphery of their lives; it was their lives.  It was the most serious work of their most productive years.  Prayer– nothing draws us closer to the heart of God.”  This is true for us as well.

Each of us is called to connect with our Father in prayer.  While we usually do this individually, there is also a place in our worship for coming together for corporate prayer.  Every three months we offer our Women’s Prayer Gathering in the Mountain Park Café at 9:30. Join us and let us draw close to God’s Heart together.

Connecting women through friendships in the church and in the community is at the heart of Women’s Ministries. “The Table” is a place to gather and share a simple meal and dive deep with others over real stories and Christ-centered conversations.  It is time for a whole lot of laughter — maybe a few tears—but time spent that leaves us with full, grateful hearts. Throughout the year there are other opportunities for connections through events such as canning classes, seminars etc.

Flying Solo events are designed to connect women who attend worship “solo.” If you are unmarried, divorced, widowed, or attend services without your mate, you’ll find the friendships that develop through Flying Solo fun and encouraging. “Lunch Bunch” meets for lunch the 2nd Sunday of each month after church. Call Kathleen Lofstrand at 503-590-7581 for more details. Watch for announcements of upcoming events.

Amen Sisters is a friendship circle joining together in fellowship, prayer and love to build relationships, while growing spiritually in the love of Christ.  Our focus is to support one another in our daily walk. Amen Sister is a place for moms to meet during Awana on Thursday evenings.

Once a year the women of Mountain Park Church serve the community. This is a chance to bless others and truly live as Christ has called us.

Emerge Women’s Bible Study meets Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Family Center Fireside Room, or Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. in the Mountain Perk Café.

To improve your balance, flexibility and strength, join us Monday nights for a workout that is good for body, mind and spirit. It is led by Wholyfit certified instructor, Joan Cobbs, personal trainer at Body Balance.

Bunco meets once a month on the third Friday of the month at 7:00-9:00 p.m.  This is fun game prompting laughter and conversation. It also provides an opportunity to get to know different women as you rotate through the tables.
