The goal of Women's Ministries is to draw women closer to God through the study of His Word, and closer to one another through friendships centered on Christ.
Ridgewood offers a Women's Bible Study that is open to all women, including friends and neighbors, of all ages. They meet September - May, on Wednesdays from 9:15-11:00am. Topics vary throughout the year. For questions, contact Pastor Susie Thompson.
Come meet some women you don’t have an opportunity to connect with during the regular “ministry year,” as well as to catch up with others whom you know well. Please bring a salad or dessert to share. The 2017 SSSS dates will be June 28th, July 26th, and August 9th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Contact the church office for specific locations.
In addition to Bible studies, RWC Women’s Ministries offers special occasional events throughout the year such as our Annual Christmas Tea, a “shower” to restock our church kitchen, Summer Sisters Salad Suppers, opportunities to hear well-known speaker/teachers, and the opportunity to enjoy a weekend retreat in the fall. The 2017 women's retreat will be held at Oak Ridge Conference Center in Chaska on September 29-30. Registration will open in mid-July.
