Welcome to Women’s Ministry of NEPC.

We’re all kinds of women, living different lives, yet connected by one common bond – Jesus Christ, our treasure. We recognize how much we need Jesus and each other. We’re intentional, real, grace-receivers and givers, headed in the same direction but still on the journey! Want to travel along? Peruse the opportunities to get involved…let’s link arms and trek together!

“The Gospel of Mark ~ The Jesus we’re aching for” by Lisa Harper
God’s heart is moved by your cries for help, your shouts for joy, your unspoken worries. We know Him to be a God of unparalled power and authority, but Mark’s account of Jesus paints Him as a deeply personal and intimate God too.

In The Gospel of Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For, follow Jesus through His days of early ministry all the way to the cross. It’s there we discover what it means to be the recipients of His excessive compassion and the very reason for His all-consuming passion.
This is an opportunity to reach out to women in the community. Please invite a friend or bring a co-worker. Anyone is welcome!

To register for TNT, please contact Tara Fox, Women’s Ministry Coordinator, 451-4649 or at tfox@nepres.com

A Prayer for Women

Heavenly Father, in Christ we are lavished with all the riches of God’s grace and yet amazingly you call us your special treasure, holding us eternally in your heart. Out of gratitude for the cross of Christ, restore awe and fervent love as we treasure our relationship with you as most precious. Examine our hearts and grant a spiritual awareness of things that distract and falsely satisfy. Guard from the dangers of busyness, over-scheduling, divided affections and storing up worldly treasures. Free us, Lord, to invite you into every area of our life. Mold us into intentional women who choose the “better part” so we live as you created us ~ to know, enjoy and glorify you ~ as our only Treasure. Amen.

Mother’s Heart Prayer Group

Moms who meet to support each other through sharing their hearts about their children and grandchildren and praying for them. All who have a burden for children—theirs or children of others—are welcome to join us. Every other Thursday, 11:45am-1:00pm in the Prayer Room, C-202.

Please contact Carroll Peters, (803)467-7525 or carrollrpeters@gmail.com for more information.
