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!

women's equipping forum
February 3, 2022 from 6:00-8:00pm in the 2PC Youth Lounge

This forum will aim to strengthen women at Second in their discipling and evangelistic relationships regarding various sexual issues women face. A group of panelists will field questions relating to a host of topics, such as abuse, same-sex attraction, pornography, sexual complications and challenges in marriage, gender dysphoria, and so on. This event will not be recorded.

February 10, 2022 from 6:00-7:30pm in the Fellowship Hall 

At this event, Gay Rhodes will teach us to make beautiful stationary and Nancy Klepper will teach us to arrange flowers that we will then deliver to some of our homebound sisters for Valentines. This will be a great time to connect with friends as we put together gifts to love and encourage some of our members who aren't able to get out and enjoy the blessings and privileges of in-person fellowship.

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.

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.
