  • Women's Bible Studies

    Do you long for a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus? Do you desire to get to know and deepen your relationships with other women? Join a Women's Bible Study! You can expect to be challenged (but not overwhelmed), encouraged by insightful and inspiring biblical teaching, and connected with other women as you study Scripture together.

    We offer many different Women’s Bible study choices on Sunday mornings and during the week at our Carmel, Fishers, and Indianapolis locations.

    Register for a Women's Bible Study here!

    For more information on Women’s Bible studies, email Christine Mayes.

  • Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

    At MOPS, we believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. That’s why we rally women, in their own neighborhoods, to help them become more brave, kind and honest, one gathering at a time. It is our goal to provide a Christ-centered, caring ministry where friendships, creativity, and personal relationships with other moms and Jesus Christ can develop.

    So, whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here!

    Our Moppets program is a safe, fun environment for children. Both paid childcare workers and volunteers offer children a loving environment, and offer moms peace of mind that their children are in a safe place. We provide moms with pagers so they can be contacted at a moment's notice if an emergency arises.

  • Infertility/Miscarriage Support

    The goal of "The Cry of My Heart" is to create a community of support around the difficulties some encounter when trying to start a family, and to recognize God's love and mercy through these trials. Whether you've been affected by infertility, miscarriage, stillborn, infant loss or adoption loss, our hearts are open you you.

    We meet every other Tuesdays for Bible study. Past books studied have included Hannah's Hope, I AM (by Lysa Tuerkerst), and Longing for Motherhood. We also hold a service of remembrance on the Sunday closest to October 15, National Infant Loss & Miscarriage Remembrance Day.

    Find out about the latest Bible Study by clicking here and scrolling to Tuesday's studies.

  • Lutheran Women In Mission (LWML)

    This auxiliary organization in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod strives to develop the spiritual gifts of women through fellowship, Christian growth, and mission service.

    We sponsor many mission-minded projects and events, including collections (socks, baby items, food), quilt making, a cookie walk, care packages for college students and more.

    And, the first weekend of every month at the Carmel site the LWML places large Mite Boxes by the Sanctuary and Worship Center to collect your spare change for mission work. Your change can make a real change!

    Join with us as we make a difference in the world through the love of Jesus Christ!
