Inreach Events

Sometime in the fall we have an Event for the women of the church. This event usually is focused on a specific topic geared toward women. It is a great opportunity to grow in learning the Lord and fellowshipping with other ladies. (Sometimes if we have our women’s Fall retreat we do not have this event)

The spring event is similar to the fall event. It is open to all women of the church. We have had varying formats, but this event usually has a form of teaching and a time to fellowship with other women. 

Coffee Talk 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. Coffee talk is also a great place to invite new friends to 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. 

Outreach Events

 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 (due to large capacity)

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 (sometimes high school ladies can come if the teaching content is appropriate for their age).
