Women’s Ministry


Our desire is to encourage women toward Christ likeness in all seasons of life based on a strategic balance of biblical sharing, studying, and serving.

“…For the equipping of the saints for the work of service to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God…” Ephesians 4:12-13a

The Women’s Ministry Advisory Board wants to come alongside you as you deepen your relationship with the Bible Church of Little Rock by sharing, studying and serving together.

Biblical Studies

Women’s Ministry is grounded in the Word of God, which is sufficient and effective for our salvation and sanctification. For information about current studies, contact Marie Kolstad.


The Bible Church of Little Rock exists to make disciples who make disciples. (Matthew 28:19-20) Every woman who is a follower of Christ is called to evangelism and discipleship relationships. We encourage women to seek out biblical friendships, empowered and compelled by the gospel, which encourage them in love and good deeds and help them walk together in a manner worthy of that gospel. (Hebrews 10:24-25; Philippians 1:27)

Titus 2 requires older women to teach, encourage, and set an example for younger women so that the Word of God will not be dishonored. (Titus 2:3-5)

We also encourage all women to seek out and invest in the lives of other women who are already in their natural spheres within the local body. Involvement in care groups, women’s Bible studies, equipping hour classes, and areas of service provide meaningful opportunities for relationships to grow and flourish.

In addition to these natural, church-wide opportunities for relationship building, a woman of any age may request to be paired with another Godly woman for encouragement in her Christian walk. If you would like to be involved in a more intentional discipleship relationship, contact Marie Kolstad, Discipleship Coordinator.

If you’d like help connecting your family to a care group, contact Tara Turk.

Recommended Reading List

Simply Service

“And let our people learn to engage in good deeds and meet pressing needs, so that they may not be unfruitful.” Titus 3:14

“By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one for another.” John 13:35

The Bible says, “what use is it if someone says he has faith but he has no works?” (James 2:14) One outworking of our Christian faith is to use our abilities and gifts in service to others. The Simply Service ministry provides a way to “have love one for another.”

What’s Cooking? These women provide meals for those in need who are not connected with a care group and come alongside care groups when needed.

First Impressions. These women make the atmosphere in the church building pleasant and inviting. They set up Christmas trees, arrange and water poinsettias and Easter lilies, and tend to the daily decoration of our facility throughout the entire calendar year.

By Special Request. These women graciously help with special needs such as transportation or childcare.

Reception Connection. These women organize church-wide dinners, fellowships, receptions, and showers.

Special Events

“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25)

Setting aside time together several times a year for fellowship is a high priority for cultivating unity in the body. Special women’s events are great opportunities for fellowship and encouragement. Women’s Ministry offers two evening events for women, a fellowship and sharing dinner at the close of the spring and fall Bible studies for those completing the study, retreats, and myriad ways to fellowship while serving together. We’d love to have you get involved in planning, serving, or just enjoying the many special ways to be involved as a woman at the Bible Church of Little Rock. “I’d love to be involved in coordinating or planning a special event.”
