Women’s Ministry

The purpose of Mountain Chapel Women’s Ministry is to develop a caring community of women devoted to Jesus Christ.

A community of women built upon the foundation of Jesus Christ fulfills a vital role within the church. 

  • Community is where we find acceptance and belonging.
  • Developing deep, godly relationships with other women helps us grow in our faith.
  • Women of faith understand the need to encourage, nurture and support one another.

    Mountain Chapel Women’s Ministries welcomes women of all ages and stages of life. There are Bible studies, small groups and other special events going on throughout the year. Contact Nancy Owen, Director of Women’s Ministries at nancy@mcumcal.org to sign up for the monthly women’s e-newsletter where you can find the most up-to-date information.

United Methodist Women
This group is organized for women of all ages seeking to serve God, grow in their faith and connect with other women. The large group is divided into small groups, known as “circles”, which are made up of women in similar stages of life. Circles meet on a monthly basis either during the day or evening, and on or off campus. Mountain Chapel UMW supports various organizations such as Bundles of Hope Diaper Bank, Camp Sumatanga, Grace House and the United Methodist Children’s Home.
