About The Workshop

Women often feel conflicted and inadequate as they survey their many roles, responsibilities and opportunities.

  • Women may leave or re-enter the workforce due to caregiving needs or health. 
  • We may struggle with identity following the loss of a job, a husband, child or a dream.
  • We may find it hard to reconcile family responsibilities with a job. 
  • We may feel insignificant in our current callings. 
  • We may feel discouraged when we compare our imagined life with our reality.
  • We may feel empty after looking at the Instagram-perfect lives of other women.

Our Women and Vocation Workshop will outline several key principles of the biblical doctrine of vocation. These will provide a structure to help us live the individual lives God has called us to. Through teaching, discussion, and small group activities we will make what we’ve learned personal and build community. We’ll enjoy lunch together before re-entering our normal lives with renewed hope, understanding and purpose.

This is a workshop for women in all seasons of life, married or not, employed or not, mothers or not.
