Learn more about Women’s Ministry

Benchmark women are sisters in Christ, walking this journey of faith together through His own grace and life-giving power. Our prayer is to see women growing in love for God and for one another through biblical teaching, prayer, fellowship, and opportunities for digging deep into the Word of God. We meet regularly for weekly Bible studies and Grace Groups. We also have several opportunities throughout the year for special events, retreats, and conferences designed to draw us closer to Christ and to one another.

“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” – Ephesians 3:17-19
