Women’s LIFE Groups
Find fellowship around God’s Word by gathering with other women in one of our women’s LIFE Groups! These LIFE Groups include women of all ages/stages who attend the Arlington Heights congregation. They meet at various times and locations throughout the week, and study the current sermon series, books of the Bible, and other gospel-centered material. Explore these groups here, and contact the leader to schedule a visit. Need help connecting? Contact Heather English.
Moms or grandmas of young kids, we have some Wednesday morning LIFE groups just for you! We offer care for infants through preschoolers in Wednesday Morning LIFE Group Kids, 9:15-11:15 a.m. at the Arlington Heights campus. On Wednesday mornings, kids will have a great time learning Bible truths, worshipping, and playing with other children while you attend an adult group. Wednesday Morning LIFE Group Kids meets September 14, 2022 – May 17, 2023. Register HERE (beginning July 1).
Women’s Ministries offers special events each year for women of all ages and stages of life (ages 13+)! These intergenerational gatherings proclaim the Gospel, equip women through God’s Word and prayer, and help women to connect with one another. Women who do not attend The Orchard are always welcome, so invite a guest to come and hear the good news of Jesus Christ!
The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference, June 16-18
Come away with us to TGCW! This conference includes large-group worship and teaching, as well as break-out sessions that help us apply God’s Word. Through the teaching of Nancy Guthrie, Courtney Doctor, Jackie Hill Perry, Jen Wilkin, Melissa Kruger, John Piper and others, we’ll explore the theme, “Remember Your Joy: Salvation Stories in the Old Testament.” Invite a friend to join you and make your plans in these 3 steps:
- Register for the conference HERE (use our discount code: ORCHARD)
- Reserve your hotel room HERE (most women from The Orchard will spend two nights (June 16-17) at Spring Hill Suites)
- Register HERE to join other women from The Orchard for dinner.
Inseparable, July 15, 7-9 p.m.
Gather to meet new friends and grow together in the love of Jesus! We'll explore how the "one another" commands of Scripture help us to encourage and build up the inseparable body of Christ! We will also enjoy dessert and do a fun gift exchange. Please bring one small, wrapped gift (valued at $5-10) that represents one of your "favorite things" (such as your favorite tea, socks, hand lotion, book, handmade item, etc.). Register HERE.
Park & Play, Wednesdays in June and July, 9:30 a.m.
Moms, bring your kids to Greens Park (corner of Olive and Douglas) to meet other moms and children from The Orchard! While the kids play, moms can connect as we learn new faces and names! Invite a friend or neighbor to join in the fun, and also consider inviting her to attend worship services and women's events with you! *If it's raining, we will NOT meet for Park & Play. Questions? Contact Emily Schumann
