Inreach Events

Grace Gatherings hopes to provide a casual environment for ladies in all seasons of life to come and fellowship together. The format will vary from an informal time of snacks and hang out time, completing a fun activity or participating in a simple fellowship game. This is open to high school age ladies and above. Grace Gatherings is also a great place to invite new friends to Lighthouse!

Join us for our annual Spring Event where we get to focus on specific topics and enjoy opportunities to serve, learn about the Lord, and fellowship with other ladies.

Join us for our annual Fall Event for a time of teaching and fellowship with other women at Lighthouse. This is a great opportunity to get to know other ladies at Lighthouse!

Women’s Retreat is a wonderful weekend away for ladies of Lighthouse to sit under biblical teaching, to meet new women, to share in small groups and to have time to relax or try new activities. Women’s Retreat is open to women college age and above (high school age ladies are able to attend the high school retreat). 

Women’s retreat will be away at a hotel one year and then following year will be a one or two day retreat at Lighthouse. Stay tuned for updated information! 

Inreach (Care Groups)

Anchored aims to minister to women affected by disability. With a gospel centered approach, ladies can come to hear the word applied specifically to how disability affects their lives, to be encouraged, to have fellowship with women in similar situations and to also bless others. This is open to any woman affected by disability. Anchored will provide caregivers if needed during the meetings. They will meet about 3-4 times a year. 

Are you caregiving for a parent? A sibling? A friend or family member? This can be a very big task that requires much from us. This group aims to meet a few times a year to gather to pray for one another and to encourage one another in this endeavor. 

This care group ministers to single mothers. We will meet about four times a year to encourage one another,  pray for one another, and walk alongside each other using the word of God and the gospel to guide us. Childcare will be provided when we meet.

The infertility care group seeks to walk alongside those who are currently experiencing infertility.  Often times this can be a lonely journey but we hope that this care group can provide a place where ladies can support, lament, pray, and encourage one another, knowing they are not alone.  We aim to meet every other month.  

Outreach Events

Salt is our annual summer outreach event where we enjoy a cooking demonstration, a speaker/testimony, and a time of sharing over a meal. This is another wonderful chance to invite friends that you want to share the gospel with. Salt is open to women of college age and above.

Our annual Women’s Christmas Breakfast includes a time of learning and fellowship over breakfast as we kick off the Christmas season. This is the perfect opportunity to invite friends that you would love to share the gospel with. Christmas breakfast is open to college age women and above.


Lamplighters is a ministry for moms of preschool-aged children or younger. The focus of this ministry is to encourage ladies to grow in their relationships with the Lord and to walk in Christlikeness in their particular season of raising little ones. Lamplighters meets on Tuesday evenings at church during the Fall (September – November) and Spring (February – May). During each session, there is a time of teaching from the Word – learning from various speakers on topics that encourage a deeper understanding of who God is and how the Gospel impacts every aspect of daily life – followed by sharing and prayer in small groups. Once or twice a season, there are presenters who come to lead a special craft or do a cooking demo. Lamplighters provides a sweet time of fellowship and refreshment for the moms!
