“Women Created in Christ unto Good Works”
“Women created in Christ unto good works” is our theme and our verse is Ephesians 2:10, which says
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
So often we continue day by day with our routines without really knowing why we do what we do. Even our faith can become ritual and lose its fervor. Our lives can feel stale and unfocused. Have you ever felt this way? Have you ever thought, “How does what I believe about Jesus really make a difference?” Maybe it is time to re-evaluate and to re-connect with the God who loved us so much He sent His Son to die for us.
We have the most amazing truth of all time at our fingertips in the Word of God. We are blessed with mercy, grace, love, justice and forgiveness. How awesome is our God! So, how to we respond to these gifts we have been given? We give all of ourselves with our whole heart. We return to our first love.
This is what is at the heart of the theme for the next year of the women’s ministries at Loch Raven Presbyterian Church. We sum it up this way, “Consider Your Ways – Reset Your Focus On Christ” Haggai 1:5
Please join us in this new journey and rediscover the power of the Gospel to us who believe.

The General Assembly has assigned the Women in the Church ministry to the Committee on Christian Education and Publications.
Discipling God’s Covenant People is Christian Education and Publications’ overarching vision. The Women in the Church’s ministry portion is to encourage and equip women to think biblically and live covenantally. We accomplish this through resources and training that are called Biblical Foundations for Womanhood.
WIC’s purpose is “that every woman in the church know Christ personally and be committed to extending His Kingdom in her life, home, church, community, and throughout the world.”
To help you, we have several groups of women that meet each at least monthly called “Circles.” These groups meet (some in the mornings and some in evenings) in homes or other locations for prayer, fellowship, and Bible study.
Lydia Circle meets the 3rd Friday of the month at 5:30 PM. They are currently studying Surrender to Love.
Young Women’s Circle meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 7PM. They are currently studying Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books.
Hannah Circle meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:15PM. They are currently studying The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis.
Rebekah Circle meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10:30 AM. They are currently studying TBA
