The purpose of COD’s Women’s Ministries is to encourage among women the development of a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and a growing fellowship with one another in order to be equipped for ministry. We involve many women in the planning and implementation of activities and events to encourage the development of leadership skills and spiritual gifts within our community.

The women’s winter Bible study on wisdom in James concluded recently. Check back soon for some stories of how the Lord met our women as they gathered to study and pray! 
 

GUM (Growing Up Mom)

Mari Higerd, GUM Ministry Coordinator
 
What is Growing Up Mom?
GUM is a group of moms who, in the midst of helping our kids grow to be happy and healthy little people, have found that we too are in the process of growing into happier and healthier women.
 
We get together three times a month to grow through laughter, guest speakers and table-top discussions. If you are seeking the company of fellow moms and friends who can share in your journey, you are just right for Growing Up Mom!
 
We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month from September through May from 8:45-11:15am. We start with breakfast. Yum! While you are spending time with friends your own age, your little one will be doing the same — spending time with little people their own age. Your child’s time at GUM will be packed with fun activities and has been designed to engage their growing minds and imaginations.
