EnrichHER

 The EnrichHER group is open to women of all ages, in all stages of life, regardless of church affiliation or spiritual background. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment where women can enrich their lives through the study of scripture and by sharing in meaningful discussion. If you seek to develop or strengthen an intimate relationship with Christ and form friendships with other women, then the EnrichHER group is for you!

The format for all our studies is video-based learning followed by group discussion. Corresponding workbooks are optional and available free of charge for those who wish to deepen their learning experience. Studies typically range from 6 to 8 sessions, with each session’s video segment running between 15 – 30 minutes long. Childcare is provided free of charge for EnrichHER study meetings held at Messiah United Methodist Church. A schedule of upcoming meeting dates and times is listed below.

Not sure you have enough time to invest? A bit of time spent in God’s Word is better then none and this group was created with a modern woman’s busy lifestyle, a packed schedule, and numerous commitments in mind. you can choose your level of commitment and participation based on your availability during this season of your life. Several opportunities are provided throughout the year to join together, face to face, in fellowship with EnrichHer members on a regular basis. If you are not able to attend these meetings in person, a private EnrichHER Facebook group allows you the flexibility to participate remotely by watching the study videos and contributing to online discussion- in your own time, as your schedule allows.
