Women

Women, no matter the stage of life we are in, face challenges that are often specific to who they are and how God has designed them. West Hills Women’s Ministry seeks to equip, connect, and move women to spiritual maturity. We seek to glorify God and serve Him by teaching sound doctrine that trains and disciples women to know and apply God’s Word to all stages of life. Please take the time to look over these ministries and see where you might connect with other women in the body of Christ.

Monday Evening Studies

1&2 Thessalonians: Excel in Christ  by John Stewart (Lamplighter series book)

Begins March 1
7 – 8:30 pm
For information on ordering the study book, contact Robin

This study teaches you why some Christians grow in Christ and others struggle. The Thessalonians accepted God’s Word as the very Word of God (1 Thess. 1:9). Nowhere else in the Bible do we see this close parallel between truth spoken, truth accepted, and lives transformed. Second Thessalonians addresses theological problems that threaten your spiritual progress. This second letter also provides critical information about the day of the Lord, an end times event when the antichrist will rise to world domination prior to Christ’s return to establish His kingdom.

Hebrews: by the LifeChange Series

Meeting on Zoom
7 – 9 pm
Cost is $10.97 for the workbook on Amazon

Keeping Our Eyes on Jesus
In Jesus, the whole world received a complete picture of who God is―what He’s like and how He loves us. With His picture before our eyes, we can live faithfully―and not only faithfully but also confidently. Whatever blessings we receive, whatever sufferings we endure, we can look forward to the life God promises. Why? Because we’ve already seen that life in Jesus. Study Hebrews and receive the confidence you need for whatever hurdles you’re facing today.

Tuesday Evening Study

Job – A Story of Unlikely Joy – with DVD – by Lisa Harper

Begins April 6, 2021
7 – 9pm
$10.00 for the workbook

Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus  Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away.

But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow?

In this 7-session study, discover the redemptive facet of Job’s suffering. Learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. Because His providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.

 Wednesday Bible Study

“Hagar – Rediscovering the God Who Sees Me” by Shadia Hrichi

Begins January 13, 2021
9:30 – 11:30am
Order your own workbook from Amazon  ($15.99)

On Wednesdays at 9:30 we will “meet” over Zoom, or while the weather is good, in your leader’s backyard w/social distancing.

We will be taking 2 weeks for each lesson making this a 14 lesson study.

Discover a close relationship with God, no matter the pain or suffering in your life. Witness the depths of God’s compassion through the eyes of Hagar, a runaway slave who meets the living God in a desert of despair, where she gives Him the name El Roi, “The God Who Sees Me.” A largely forgotten Old Testament character, Hagar is actually one of only a few people who have ever spoken directly with the LORD. In this study you will find that when you surrender your life into God’s hands, your trails and triumphs serve a magnificent purpose to draw you into the arms of the faithful God who sees you.

Mothering by Heart – A Special Note From Gina

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life…even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all.”

Philippians 2:14‭-‬17

Covid has taken mothering to the next level, hasn’t it? And now many of us are becoming teachers and principles on top of it. What an opportunity for us to grow! “Mothering by heart” the ministry at West Hills has been replaced with “mothering by heart” in our homes. 

I don’t know about you, but my heart is all over these verses from Philippians. They seem so fitting for where I’m at in Covid. And because of God’s grace in my life I can do all my parenting and schooling without complaining or grumbling (it’s a work in progress, for sure). When I hold fast to the Word of Life I’m not only refreshed but I’m also empowered to keep moving forward (especially on those mornings its hard to get out of bed and face the day). And as moms, if we weren’t feeling “poured out as a drink offering” before Covid, how much more so now! Sometimes I feel completely empty, but even then, I can rejoice in my emptying because God is using it for the faith of my children. He is faithful to redeem my failings and use the good examples for His glory! 

We are so sad we cannot meet as a group at this time and encourage one another! We greatly missed our summer park days. And even though communication from us has been scarce (we’re moms trying to navigate these crazy times, too), know you are not forgotten. You are so loved and so cherished by our Lord! And you have a very special place in our hearts as a mom and friend in the same boat of life. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your table leader or me if you are in need of encouragement or anything else during these times! Also know that West Hills has pastors who are available for counseling. 

Don’t give up mamas! Let’s keep running this race with endurance together!!
