Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

– Ephesians 4:15-16

Women’s Ministry

UBC’s ministry of women to women as we gather around the Word of God.

Women’s Ministry Updates – Fall 2023


The aim of the UBC Women’s Ministry Bible studies is for women to gather together around the Word of God, teaching, encouraging, and challenging each other to live out the truths we find within it.

Diana and Nita’s Precept studies are an inductive method of reading God’s word and applying its truth to our lives. They will be starting Romans 8 on September 12th, 2023. One study is held at the church and the other study is held at Imelda McClinton’s house. Please see below to sign up.

Our other Bible studies use the COMA method, where we discuss Context, Observations, Meaning, and Applications within the text. They also include a short meditation on a key verse with an emphasis on application at the end of the study. This school year, we will walk through the book of Matthew together, learning more about Jesus as the unexpected Messiah and his upside-down kingdom.

  • Every Wednesday morning from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at UBC Fellowship Hall, beginning September 6th. Childcare is available. Led by Katherine Brill, Elizabeth Hale, and Hayley Meyer.
  • Every other Tuesday evening, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at Erin Wheeler’s house (512 E. Rebecca St, Fayetteville), beginning September 5. Led by Jennifer Gidden, Courtney Osborn, and Erin Wheeler.
  • Every other Wednesday, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm in the UBC Chapel, beginning September 13th. Led by Karen Trumbo and Erika Dennett.

For information on these studies, contact Erika Dennett at edennett@ubcfayetteville.org.

    UBC Women’s Institute


    If you’ve ever felt that theology is only for pastors or seminary students and not for ordinary Christian women, you’re not alone. But theology, the study of who God is and all He has done in the world, is for every single woman who follows Christ.

    The UBC Women’s Institute conducts classes on theological topics to train women to know and love the deep things of God. Studying theology together with other women at UBC will not only increase your knowledge of God and the truths contained in his Word, but will also help the reality of who God is seep into every aspect of your practical, daily life as a Christian and a member of UBC. Click HERE for the most recent resource list!

    Click below to sign up to receive updates, and to receive Scripture passages and articles to look over in advance of the classes.

    Opportunities to Serve in Women’s Ministry

    A team of UBC members help to plan and serve during our two Women’s Ministry events each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. It would be a joy to get to serve with you as we plan for women’s outreach, fellowship, and encouragement around God’s Word during our annual Christmas Tea and Women’s Retreat! This typically includes once a month prayer and planning meetings during September-December and January-April. We also have serving opportunities each month during our UBC Women’s Institute, like greeting and sound. If you may be interested in helping serve on these ministry teams and are a member of UBC, please email edennett@ubcfayetteville.org for more information.
