Cross Park Women

Get Involved

At Cross Park, we know how important it is for women of all ages to learn from and minister to one another through studying the Bible and enjoying times of relaxation and fun.  We have a number of Women's Bible Studies with both morning and evening times, and varying childcare options.  And we also host a number of events throughout the year where we can get to know one another.  Below you can find all the latest information about our studies and upcoming events.  We'd love for you to join us!

Women's Prayer Gatherings
Cross Park women gather to pray for our church--its leaders, ministries, missionaries--and for any prayer concerns submitted to us specifically each month.  Our weekly announcements will keep you updated on upcoming dates for these gatherings.  Please join us!  For more info, or to contact us with specific requests, e-mail Wendy at

Women's Day Retreat | The Art of Befriending
Saturday May 20th from 9am-4pm
At the SIM Campus (14830 Choate Cir, Charlotte, NC 28273)

Please join us for a day of relaxation, refreshment, and encouragement as you enjoy time with other Cross Park women. We'll be discussing Gospel friendship - what it is and how it can help us discover, forge, and sustain deep and lasting relationships with other women. There will also be time for quiet reflection on our topic and then several hours of free time to enjoy the beautiful SIM grounds, spend time with friends (old and new), or just get some time to yourself. We'll enjoy some great food as well (morning coffee/tea and snacks, lunch, and afternoon drinks and snacks), all provided!  SIGN UP HERE to reserve your spot - the cost is $10 per person.
To Bring:  The women of Cross Park are supporting the Sharon Lakes summer efforts with fun "summer packets" for the kids involved in the tutoring program! We hope to bless each child with at least one age-appropriate book, a notebook/journal, and writing utensils to help spark their summer creativity. Please select your items on the Sign Up Genius below to avoid too many duplicates and bring them with you on May 20th, where we'll hear more about how the supplies will be used this summer.
