Women 

As a Women's Ministry our desire is to see women - of all ages, cultures, walks of life and spiritual journeys - be encouraged to love Jesus more, be enriched by journeying together through community, and be empowered to live a life bringing hope!

Each of us are vessels handmade by God, with a special purpose in mind. As women of WoodsEdge, our heart is that each of us would pursue that purpose and find our place to connect, grow and serve.  In doing so, we make an impact in our own lives and those around us - one life at a time. For an audience of one (Jesus), and for the sake of one (others), we passionately pursue being his vessels filled up, so we can be poured out.

Visit the various areas below for further information on all that is available and happening in WoodsEdge Women's Ministry. We warmly welcome you and are truly excited to be in this passionate pursuit of Jesus together with you!

Mentoring and Discipleship

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

The heart of BLOOM is to see the women of WoodsEdge Community Church be firmly rooted in Jesus and the living Word of God. We believe a discipleship and mentoring relationship between an older woman with wisdom in following Christ and a younger woman can be rich soil for foundational spiritual growth. BLOOM will connect women in a mentoring relationship to equip, encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Jesus through every season of life.  

Outreach

Colossians 3:1-2 - If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earthFor you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

We are called to live with eternity in mind and in doing so spread the light and life of Christ. Women of WoodsEdge desire to fulfill God’s commission and the mission of our church.

Through various opportunities and outreach ministries, we encourage you to join us in reaching out to the world to bring the hope of Christ.


MATS FOR HOMELESS

The Sleeping Mats for the Homeless Ministry takes recycled bags and converts them into sleeping mats. We cut the bags into loops, connect the loops into strips and then crochet or knit the strips into mats. Help is needed for each step and crochet and knit instruction is available if desired.

MOMS IN PRAYER

Moms in Prayer International is a Christ-centered, interdenominational prayer ministry made up of moms, grandmothers, aunts - any woman who desires to pray for children and schools. 

In groups of two or more, we gather one hour each week to life up our children, their teachers and school staff before the Lord. We pray that our schools, from preschool through college, will be directed by biblical values and high moral standards, whether public, private or homeschool.

Women's Prayer

WOMEN'S PRAYER VISION

As women at WoodsEdge, we are aligned with WoodsEdge's view on Prayer: Prayer is the real work. As the women, we want to engage in the real work and gather together in prayer on a regular basis. We want to be equipped in the service of praying for others and growing in our relationships with the Lord. 

The Women's Prayer Team meets monthly. We gather for two hours to glean truths about prayer from God's Word and to pray for WoodsEdge, the women at our church, our community, and each other. By joining together, we appeal to our Loving Father and continue to grow more towards Houston being a City of God. Any woman of WoodsEdge is welcome to join us.

Our next meeting dates are:

TBD* 
**all meetings are at 7 p.m. in room 202**

Fitness

Colossians 2:19, 3:9 - holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. …put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. 

God designed us to be whole in every aspect of our life and that includes our physical body too!  WoodsEdge Women are blessed to have a couple of avenues you can be a part of for fitness. Whether you are just starting out or have been exercising regularly, our classes offer a Christ-centered workout that will help your body and bless your soul! 

REFIT®

Get ready for a fitness experience like no other! This cardio-focused class combines powerful moves with positive music for a challenging, effective and FUN workout. This class is perfect for beginners and will challenge fitness enthusiasts. Simplistic movements and upbeat music will leave you sweating, smiling, and feeling stronger – body, mind, and soul. Bring your best hair toss and rockstar attitude – or get ready to discover both! Bring a bottle of water to class.

REV+FLOW®


REV+FLOW is a low impact, high intensity work out that protects the joints by avoiding jumping and pivoting, and instead targets key areas, movement patterns (bending, pushing, pulling, etc.) and muscle groups to increase stamina, strength and power. Each class incorporates a warm up, upper body, lower body and core exercise, floor work, and a cool down. Please bring a yoga mat to class.
