We're delighted to welcome author, speaker, and musician Glenna Marshall, writer and speaker Paola Barrera, and WE director Bethany Barendregt. Join us for fellowship, worship, and growth as we learn more about the gift of God's word, His presence with us, our identity in Christ, and what it means to live on mission for Him.
The Gift of God's Word- We Can Know Him - It's tempting to look at our life's circumstances and decide what's true about God, but we have been given all we need to know of Him in His unchanging Word. Rather than building our theology upon our experiences and perceptions, we must let God tell us who He is in the way He has chosen to do so.
The Gift of God's Presence: We Can Know He is With Us - We often go to the Scriptures looking for a promise that God will change our circumstances or remove us from suffering. But when we trace His faithful love to His people throughout the Bible, we see that His presence is the promise He gives, and His presence is the promise we need.
The Word of Truth, the Gospel - The truth of the gospel cements our identity, equips us to answer the lies we're faced with, and defines how we live as Christian women.
Whatever is True, Rooted in Eternal Perspective - Eternal perspective gives a right sense of self. Gaining that perspective starts with knowing Whose you are.

Q: What church is Women Encouraged affiliated with?
A: WE is made up of women from many different local churches. The women on the WE vision and planning teams go to Grande Prairie area churches, and we submit to the elders and pastors at our churches. We believe that the Church is Jesus' body and that being in regular attendance and involved in a local church is crucial for the spiritual health of believers in Jesus Christ. We encourage the women who attend WE events to connect to a faithful local body of believers.
Q: Do you have a statement of faith?
A: Yes, you can find our statement of faith and vision statement here.
