HTLC Gastonia Women's Ministry


As sisters in Christ, we dedicate ourselves to move forward in faith and mission, through prayer and evangelism, with the Holy Scriptures as the ultimate authority of God.

Yellow Cosmos Blossom
Ladies Bible Study • Jesus & Women
Tuesdays at 6:30pm via Zoom

Imagine walking the dusty roads of Galiliee with Jesus of Nazareth - braving jostling crowds just to touch the edge of His cloak and hear Him say, "Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you. 

Those words, once meant to comfort a hurting woman's soul thousands of years ago, were also meant for you.

Beginning Tuesday, January 16, 2024, join biblical culturalist, Kristi McLelland, on those dusty roads as she transports you back to Jesus' world, following in the footsteps of the women who came face-to-face with the Living God. Over 7 sessions, examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply but to fuel your worship of Him today.


  • Explore how Jesus generously restores dignity and honor to women in the first century and now.

  • Gain deeper insight into the biblical world, including fresh perspective on familiar Bible stories. 

  • Discover the Bible through the lens of the Middle Eastern culture.

To avoid interfering with the Lenten Services, we will meet on Tuesdays. Please contact Anna Houser either by phone or by email if you are interested in participating. The church will purchase and provide the book. A love offering will be collected to supplement the cost.
