Just as different threads are woven together to form a beautiful picture, Tapestry’s goal is to create something vibrant and colorful as we weave our lives together

Our first threads come in studying the word and growing in the knowledge of God. The tapestry grows as we seek God’s heart through weekly Bible studies and special events.

Our threads are all different—praise God! We would love for you to join us, no matter where you are in your faith journey, as we weave our lives together in Him.

Women's Groups

Did you know that the words joy, rejoice or joyful appear a total of 430 times in the Bible? This is significant for us.

Why? Because joy is a characteristic of God’s people. Joy comes from knowing who we are to God, and understanding what He has done for us. We’re charged to embrace joy and we do that by embracing God, the joy-giver. To continually identify, not with the labels the world gives us, not with the labels family or friends give us, but with the very name He calls us—beloved, chosen, loved.

Wendell Berry wrote, Be joyful because it is humanly possible.

You and I have the capacity for joy because God has given it to us. We can choose joy and keep choosing it every day, because of His Holy Spirit within us.

This year in Women’s Ministry we’re going to explore what it means to Choose Joy. We’ll be starting off in Philippians and finishing the year in Colossians and Philemon. We have some great teachers and wonderful discussion leaders. We hope you’ll join us!
