Women’s Ministries at IBC, exists to encourage women to worship our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, through the study and application of Scripture.
Our various ministries are the following:
- Seasonal Bible studies: some exegetical, some topical
- An annual spring Women’s Retreat
- September Sisters & Friends, older single’s women ministry

As you review the different growth opportunities, you’ll find that whether you are single or married, in every season of life, there is a spiritual home and sweet fellowship here for you.
Beginning January 2, we are embarking in the wonder of gazing upon the face of God by virtue of reading the Bible in a year. Through a thoughtful, diligent reading of the Word, we will gain understanding of the Bible in all its parts as a cohesive whole –God’s story of redemption. We will gain eternal perspective on life, and understand how we fit into the redemptive story. By studying his Word broadly, we will capture God’s character that will encourage us to love and worship him more deeply, and serve him more fervently.
Focusing a year on God and his character, his mighty works, and his relationship to us, we can overcome our fears, doubts, anxieties and be established in a confident and hopeful faith in him.
The Summer session is happening on Tuesdays, July 11, 18 and 25, at 10:00 am. Following our Bible reading plan we will contemplate Proverbs 1, Ecclesiastes 12, and Isaiah 5 respectively. We are excited to offer a simultaneous children program, please register your children as soon as possible. The program will be done in a private Ranch with plenty of room to meander. For an extended time of fellowship, bring a picnic lunch to enjoy under large maple trees or in a breeze porch, we’ll love to have you!. Please email to email@example.com for address and directions.
Follow the 5-day reading plan!
September Sisters and friends are mature single, sisters in Christ, loving, encouraging and supporting each other while focusing on serving the Lord. September Sisters are in a season when a fruitful life is re-defining itself with new energy, with new discretionary freedom to invest in meaningful relationships and activities serving our community and church family. Their goal is to bind their hearts in Christian love while playing and serving together. Their theme verse is Psalm 92:12-15.
There are regularly scheduled activities plus many other opportunities as they present themselves, including but not limited to: after-church lunches, coffee/walks, service projects, visiting the sick and the home-bound sisters, etc.
Once a year, we have the opportunity to break away from our routine to refresh our spirit at Cedars Springs Retreat Center, one of the most beautiful settings in the West Coast. Immanuel Bible Church has a history of 53 years of women’s retreats, please browse our FB page to see pictures of the recent years.
Retreat date for 2017, is April 28-29.
