Womens’ Summit 2024


Women's Summit purpose is

to grow in relationship with God and women as we worship through singing, learning from God's word, learning from each other, praying, and having fun.

The Great Commandment

Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." - Matthew 22:37-40

Our Guiding Verses

“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” - Ephesians 3:16-21

The Great Commission

Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

- Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)

Small Groups

Discover the purpose and guidelines for small groups.



Each woman will be randomly assigned to a small group for these purposes:

  • Serve one another, Galatians 5:13
  • Accept one another, Romans 15:7
  • Forgive one another, Colossians 3:13
  • Greet one another, Romans 16:16
  • Carry one another’s burdens, Galatians 6:2
  • Be devoted to one another, Romans 12:10
  • Honor one another, Romans 12:10
  • Instruct one another, Romans 15:14
  • Submit to one another, Ephesians 5:21
  • Encourage one another, 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Small Group Guidelines:

  1. Keep confidentiality of what is shared in your small group. It is important for each person to feel safe to share.

2. Do not discuss personal details that anyone shares in your group with others outside of the group.

3. Each person creates an atmosphere of trust by accepting, listening to, and caring for women in the group.

4. Do not judge.

5. Encourage one another with God’s Word and prayer.

6. Give each person an opportunity to share. No one should monopolize the group by talking and not giving others an opportunity to share. If there are 5 women in your group, each one should have 1/5 of the group time.

Unity in Essentials

What unites the women represented by small “c” churches as we come together as the big “C” Church at Women’s Summit?

Love (1 Corinthians 13)

Essential doctrines are those core teachings that distinguish Christians from non Christians and must be believed in order for one to be a genuine follower of the Lord Jesus (Jason Hiles).

In essential beliefs, we have unity. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called -one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. -

Ephesians 4:4-6 (NIV)

Essentials We Believe

1. About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

​Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 Matthew 28:19 1 Peter 1:2

Psalm 90:2 2 Corinthians 13:14

2. About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23 Romans 1:3, 4 Isaiah 9:6 Acts 1:9-11

John 1:1-5; 14:10-30 1 Timothy 6:14, 15 Hebrews 4:14, 15

Titus 2:13 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4.

3. About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17 Ephesians 1:13 John 16:7-13; 14:16-17

Galatians 5:25 Acts 1:8 Ephesians 5:18 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16

4. About the Bible

The Bible is God's word. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error, for its matter. The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 3:16 Psalm 119:105, 12:6 2 Peter 1:20, 21

Proverbs 30:5 2 Timothy 1:13

5. About Humankind

All people are made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character. They are the supreme object of God's creation. Because of our sin, we have separated ourselves from God and live with the disposition to sin.

Genesis 1:27 Romans 3:23 Psalm 8:3-6

Isaiah 59:1,2 Isaiah 53:6a

6. About Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin's penalty. Living in salvation begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ by faith and turns from sin in sincere repentance.

Romans 6:23 Titus 3:5 Ephesians 2:8,9

Galatians 3:26 John 14:6; 1:12 Romans 5:1

Liberty in


Non-essential beliefs such as various views on spiritual gifts are not necessary for salvation.​​

​Christians frequently disagree about various nonessential teachings, but disagreement about these doctrines does not amount to a denial of the faith. In other words, those who disagree on matters that are not absolutely essential to the faith, while affirming core doctrines, have in no way ceased to be genuine sisters in Christ (Jason Hiles).

​​​I appeal to you… sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10 (NIV)

​​Genuine sisters in Christ may operate very differently from us and hold different views from us on a host of nonessentials. Yet this is a cause not for disunity but for rejoicing in the diversity of Christ’s body, the true members of which are united forever in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus (Alistair Begg).​​

Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don’t see things the way you do. And don’t jump all over them every time they do or say something you don’t agree with—even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department. Remember, they have their own history to deal with. Treat them gently… So, each person is free to follow the convictions of conscience… None of us are permitted to insist on our own way in these matters. It’s God we are answerable to—all the way from life to death and everything in between—not each other. That’s why Jesus lived and died and then lived again: so that He could be our Master across the entire range of life and death, and free us from the petty tyrannies of each other. So where does that leave you when you criticize a brother? And where does that leave you when you condescend to a sister? I’d say it leaves you looking pretty silly—or worse. Eventually, we’re all going to end up kneeling side by side in the place of judgment, facing God. Your critical and condescending ways aren’t going to improve your position there one bit… So tend to your knitting. You’ve got your hands full just taking care of your own life before God. Forget about deciding what’s right for each other. Here’s what you need to be concerned about: that you don’t get in the way of someone else, making life more difficult than it already is… If you confuse others by making a big issue over…, you’re no longer a companion with them in love, are you? These, remember, are persons for whom Christ died… It’s what God does with your life as He sets it right, puts it together, and completes it with joy. Your task is to single-mindedly serve Christ… So let’s agree to use all our energy in getting along with each other. Help others with encouraging words, don’t drag them down by finding fault. You’re certainly not going to permit an argument over… to wreck God’s work among you, are you?... Cultivate your own relationship with God, but don’t impose it on others. You’re fortunate if your behavior and your belief are coherent. But if you‘re not sure, if you notice that you are acting in ways inconsistent with what you believe—some days trying to impose your opinions on others, other days just trying to please them—then you know that you’re out of line. If the way you live isn’t consistent with what you believe, then it’s wrong. Romans 14:1, 5, 7-10, 12-13, 15, 17-20, 22-23 (The Message)
