Women’s Ministry

Welcome to the The Heights Women’s Ministry! It is our mission to minister to women by encouraging, equipping and evangelizing through prayer, friendships and Bible study.  It is our desire that you come to have a personal, “heart” relationship with the Lord. We hope as you look through these pages, you will find opportunities that will help you towards that end. It is also our hope that you will make some new friends and find places where you can share the love of Christ with others.

Our Women’s Ministry offers a variety of Bible Studies from which to choose during Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions. Along with seasonal selections, we offer Apples of Gold during the Fall and Winter sessions and In His Garden during the Spring.

Prayer Team

The Women’s Ministry Prayer Team is an exciting opportunity for women of all backgrounds and experiences to meet with God in intercessory prayer and watch for His answers with the intent of giving God all of the glory.

Our team was formed in the fall of 2019 to equip and encourage women to be committed to the daily practice of personal prayer that is effective and fruitful and Scripture-driven. Our vision is that we will become women who bathe their families and homes, the church, 804+ and the next generation in prayer.

Card Ministry Team – We send out notes or greeting cards of encouragement to the staff, members of the church, and the teachers, medical staff and policemen of our area. We also write to our nursing home members on a monthly basis. We pray over every card.

T2 Prayer Team – We meet via Zoom from September to May, every Monday night from 7 – 7:45 pm. Our primary focus is to pray for T2 leaders, mentors and mentees and Turnouts, but our ministry now extends to pray for all the women of the church. New members are welcome!

Scripture Card Team – For large events, we place cards with prayed-over, handwritten scripture at each seat. The Women’s Prayer Shawl ministry will often knit prayer squares (hearts, leaves, etc.) to accompany each card. We are looking for women to join us in writing and praying over the scripture cards.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The handiwork of the ladies of the Prayer Shawl Ministry touches the lives of the very young and the very young at heart. They provide a remembrance for occasions of joy and celebration, for grieving, and for comfort. The items they create are gifts that open doors to share the love of Christ. They reach out to the neighbors in their hometown, children in their state capital, strangers in their hemisphere and even the other side of the planet. God is so good to have given them these gifts and talents. Others are blessed because they do not squander their gifts but instead faithfully use them to spread The Gospel.

T2 Mentoring Ministry

T2 (Titus 2) is a mentoring ministry based on Titus 2:3-5, “3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”

Our purpose is to intentionally pour into the next generations of women to love God and others according to His word. We will do the mentoring both with 1) large group gatherings called T2 Turnouts and 2) through individual pairing of older and younger women called TAG. Our large group gatherings, T2 Turnouts, occur 4 times a year at church and feature fellowship, light snacks, worship, speakers, and testimony. Our TAG pairs are formed in August and September with signup forms and they last for one year and can renew or change for next year if desired. Women can choose to do both T2 Turnout and TAG or just one.

T2 Leadership Team is made up of 4 teams: Prayer, Hospitality, Worship, Tag. We meet all together once a year in April to review and create for the next year. We have a theme for each year such as “She Smiles at the Future”, or “The Anchor Holds” We then build our 4 Turnouts on this and our purpose scripture, Titus 2:3-5. Our mentors for TAG have a training and are offered materials to use for mentoring their mentees throughout the year.

T2 in not original to our church or our time but we see God using this mentoring program in a mighty way in our community and we pray that because of it, His word will not be maligned and women will love Jesus more.
