WOMEN TALKING LIKE WOMEN ABOUT GOD
Tea.ology is now the Women’s Study, but you can still expect the same great discussions and theological study with a small group of good friends. This year the women will delve deeper into specific topics through two separate sessions: Fall and Spring.
In the Fall, we explore the theological basis of emotions. What does the Bible say about feelings? How can truth help us handle emotions in ways that glorify God? The book that will guide our discussion is True Feelings.
Women's Study is for all female regular attenders of Sovereign Grace Church age 14 and older.
The women of Sovereign Grace Church have organized a handful of fun events this Summer. They kick off the first one on Monday night with mini golf. Ladies from inside and outside the church are welcome. Invite your friends.
Monday, June 18th
Camelot Golfland in Anaheim
More details and RSVP are available on the Facebook page.
The women of our church have scheduled a ton of fun activities for the summer. Some with kids. Some without.
Time together is the key to meaningful friendships. Each of these events is an opportunity to strengthen the bonds you have with other women in the church. Take advantage this summer.
The calendar is full and the best way to stay up to date is on our Playgroup's Facebook page. Dates, times, and locations are all there.
A beach day at Corona Del Mar is our first event and it's happening this coming Tuesday June 5th. We'll see you there.
We are blessed to be in a church where women take the initiative to disciple other women. Our February Women's Retreat was the most recent expression of this commitment.
On Sunday Stephanie shared how the Lord met her at the retreat. Here it is in her own words:
At the end of February, I had the opportunity to attend my first women’s retreat with Sovereign Grace Church and I loved it! It was so nice to spend time in prayer, singing, Bible reading, and fellowship with the women of this church.
The theme was Drawing Near To God and the teaching was centered on a series of activities that could guide our quiet times and devotionals, such as confession, praise, petition, intercession, and thanksgiving.
So when the retreat began with "God is not impressed with our quiet times”, I was really taken aback by this truth. It is so easy to get caught up in thinking that somehow quiet times and spiritual disciplines will earn God's favor, but this is so far from the truth.
At the women's retreat, I was reminded that quiet times are a means of grace, not to grace. God is not impressed with our quiet times, but as Hebrews 4:16 says we can “…With confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

These women have taken it upon themselves to be the visionaries and planners of our women's events (check out previous events here, here, and here). They've gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that the women of Sovereign Grace have meaningful opportunities to connect and grow. They make sacrifices because they love the One who made the ultimate sacrifice for them and for us.
