Women’s Ministry

The Women’s Ministry of Mountain Brook Community Church is committed to encouraging the women of our church and community to love and follow Jesus.  It is our goal to raise up a generation of women who passionately seek after God, who know His Word, who want to serve others, and who desire to finish faithfully.

Women’s Ministry Programs & Events

Bible Studies:

Through women’s weekly Bible Studies, we offer an opportunity to study the Word of God, to pray for each other, and to enjoy the sweet fellowship of the body of Christ.  A variety of studies are offered year-round on various days of the week, with most studies containing 8-12 women each.
