Women in Ministry

Women in Ministry (WIM) aims to help Second’s sisters make progress in knowing Christ, becoming like him, and making him known in our various callings and contexts. That’s why God’s Word is at the heart of all our ministry among women at Second.

WIM hosts various gatherings for Bible study, ministry equipping, and intergenerational fellowship. Whether or not you’re a member of Second, you and your friends are welcome to join any WIM gathering. Come grow with us as Word-filled women who hear, do, and share God’s Word!

Bible Study Resources

The Bible is God’s breathed-out Word.

In the Bible, God speaks personally and authoritatively about the salvation he’s accomplished through his Son, the Lord Jesus. And he speaks to us in his Word to change us, to equip us for every good work.

The following videos begin to explain a few basic tools for biblical exposition. They aim to encourage us to keep making progress in hearing God’s Word, doing God’s Word, and retelling God’s Word—all for the glory of Christ Jesus.

Genre In terms of literary form, how does the author say what he is saying?

Discipleship & Mentoring

Come and See

Come and See is a discipleship ministry for women of different generations to follow Christ together by studying God’s Word and working out how it applies to every area of life. An older woman and a younger woman are paired together and meet weekly to study the Bible, which is the Titus 2 model of discipleship.

Walk with Me

Walk with Me is a one-on-one mentoring program through Women In Ministry designed to offer confidential prayer support, Christian fellowship, encouragement, spiritual guidance and teaching. It is women helping women through various major issues of life; a friend to support someone spiritually, relationally and emotionally.  Using a confidential questionnaire and evaluation process, women are paired with an experienced mentor.  Though not a substitute for professional counseling or conflict resolution, mentors seek to provide support to women during times of deep need.

Spring Sister Supper: April 20, 6:00pm

Women’s Equipping Forum: May 8, 6:30-8:00pm
Loving and Reaching Our Non-Christian Family Members

Some of the most poignant relationships we have with non-Christians are developed in the context of our families. These relationships can involve lots of joy and lots of heartache. Because of our special ties with immediate and extended family, our relationship with a non-Christian family member sometimes feels more secure than other relationships while simultaneously feeling more delicate. How can we navigate the challenges that arise in these relationships in a manner that points our non-Christian family to Jesus? In this polarizing age, what are helpful ways to engage in conversation about spiritual matters? What encouragement do we need to persevere in hope?

In our women’s equipping forum on May 8, we’ll consider the sorts of peculiar challenges and opportunities that come when we aim to see the gospel advance among our non-Christian family members. The forum will feature a live interview of Kori Porter and another sister, both of whom will share wise practices to embrace and pitfalls to avoid. We’ll conclude our time with Q&A to go deeper on topics that are of particular interest to you. The forum’s objective is to equip each of us to make practical, tangible progress in loving our non-Christian family and reaching them for Christ.

Any woman is welcome to register and attend the forum. Only those registrants who have viewed/read the light preparation material in full may participate vocally by submitting a question before or during the forum. The preparation material will be distributed among registrants a few weeks prior to the forum. To allow for open, candid discussion, the forum will not be recorded.

Summer Fellowship Groups

We hope many will take advantage of this opportunity to spend time with women from various stages in life so that we can get to know one another better.  When you register for a group, you’ll select a particular set of days/times, and Yvonne will put you in a group that works with your schedule. We will have options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or coffee—hopefully one set will work for you. Each group will meet three times: once in June July and August. It’s simple and easy, but the reward may just be new friendships formed for life!
