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! Contact our Women's Ministry Coordinator, Trish Hardy, with any questions.

Updates regarding COVID-19

We are working on getting a new group virtual book study up and running in the next few weeks. Watch for more details soon!

Women's Care Team

The Women's Care Team exists so that you can ask one of them for help in figuring out how to move forward if you aren’t sure where to go for care and counsel. Whether you are feeling stuck spiritually, facing challenging circumstances, or struggling with sin, the WCT is a resource to you. You can contact one of these women directly, or you can always email to get connected with someone who can help you.
