CLICK FOR WOMEN'S TEACHING RESOURCES
The ZF Women’s Ministry Team is committed to the biblical vision of true community, which includes living out the "one anothers" of Scripture together (love, encourage, forgive, etc.). God’s Word instructs us toward an ongoing ethos of discipleship as we seek to help one another know, follow, and become like Jesus. These kinds of relationships are mutually beneficial, build up the body of Christ, and make much of the Gospel.
Practically this involves: 1) women of all ages and experiences opening Scripture together to study and learn, 2) older women teaching and training younger women, and 3) making intentional efforts to connect and invest in the lives of other women, being “mutually encouraged by one another’s faith.”
While the primary places for these to happen are in small groups and intentional friendships, we also plan ministries and events to help encourage these connections. These various opportunities are intended to help foster meaningful relationships and be equipped in the Word.
A newsletter specific to Women's Ministries is emailed out on a monthly basis. This is a great way to stay in touch with the most current information on Women's Events. If you are not on this email list and would like to be, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up!
During the summer months, when Habits of the Heart is not in session, we offer several opportunities for women to participate in Summer Bible Studies together. Generally, 3-4 intergenerational studies take place at varied times in an attempt to accommodate a variety of schedules and almost always meet in homes. The studies themselves are generally around 8 weeks long and take an in-depth look at a book of the Bible or a Scripture-saturated topical book. Summer studies provide a wonderful opportunity for connection, fellowship, hospitality and equipping in the Word. Below are the 2023 Summer Studies.
A covenant is a bond, a promise, a token of abiding love. Promises ground us. With every promise comes stability and beauty. Every kept vow gives courage and hope. In Promises Kept, Courtney Reissig takes students through five Old Testament covenants—promises—with the goal of seeing God’s beautiful storyline. What are the purposes of God’s covenants and how do they inform and transform the way we live? We will discover the meaning of God’s Covenant with Adam, Abraham, the Exodus and Passover, the Mosaic Covenant, God’s Covenant with David, and the New Covenant Promised. Participants will see God’s purposes for His people, their place in His purposes, and how the entire Bible fits together. Additionally, we will see how Jesus fulfills God’s loving covenants.

The Book of Numbers continues the historical narrative in Exodus, the story of God’s people newly freed from Egypt’s shackles and wandering toward the promised land. Numbers is a story of wilderness wandering, but it’s also a story of God’s presence among His beloved. Discover how even when God’s people rebelled, God’s love and promises remained. It’s in that love and those promises that the children of Israel found their identity and where we must find ours today.

Kyle and Kelsey Kupecky couldn't have dreamed a better love story for themselves. In fact, if you asked them, Kyle and Kelsey would name God as the author of their story. And they're glad they trusted him to write it for them. Unfortunately, too many girls hoping for their own happily-ever-after have taken matters into their own hands, chasing after boys when they should be chasing after God. And that inevitably leads to heartache, low self-esteem, and poor choices as girls give in to pressure from media and peers to look and act a certain way to attract guys. Through their own story and the stories of others who long for love, they show girls how to put God first, how to value and protect their purity, how to deal with loneliness and bullying, and how to see themselves as God does.

Habits of the Heart Bible study is a ministry to women at ZF and the surrounding community. We meet at Zionsville Fellowship Church on Wednesday mornings from 9:15-11:15 AM and in the evenings from 7:00-8:15 PM. Infant and toddler care is offered for the morning session as well as preschool Bible classes. Our time together will vary but can include video and live teaching, singing, and intergenerational small group discussions.
We will begin a new semester on September 13th and we will study the books of Ruth and Esther. You can REGISTER HERE.
Two different times and in two distinct ways, God uses two women, 500 years apart, to change the course of history. The stories of Ruth and Esther will teach us a lot about how our faith enables us to make decisions even in the most difficult of times and how God is always working behind the scenes.
If you have any questions, please contact Lynn Eriks email@example.com (317-979-8143). Scholarships are available. We look forward to seeing you.
We welcome all Mothers of Preschoolers to join us in making our motherhoods significant as we explore the Fruits of the Spirit.
We will meet on two Friday’s a month at ZF from 9:15 – 11:15 AM. Moms will enjoy brunch, inspirational speakers and the opportunity to connect with other moms. Please feel free to invite other preschool moms!

Our Mugs & Muffins mornings are special events that take place twice a year (once during the spring and fall semesters respectively). We meet at the church building on a Saturday morning from 9:30-11:00 am to fellowship and grow together around a specific topic. Topics are varied and our time together always includes coffee, brunch, a speaker or panel of speakers and a craft with a time of discussion and fellowship.
Progressive Dinners are a new tradition that we have begun in the Women's Ministry. Our first Progressive Dinner took place on a Monday evening in the Fall of 2022 and was a sweet time of forging connections and relationships with sisters in Christ.
A progressive dinner is an opportunity for you to have an appetizer, main meal and dessert in two women's homes. These homes are in close proximity to each other which allows for short and fun transitions between courses. It will be a sweet opportunity for relational depth to happen among women you may already know and for those that you may meet for the first time. You don't need to bring any food to this event, simply show up and enjoy. You will be notified by email before the dinner on which neighborhood you will be attending and which house you will be starting your meal.
Join us each spring in March for our annual Women's Retreat at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth, Indiana. The weekend includes singing, teaching and small group discussions as well as times of fun and rest. We welcome Middle School and High School girls (13 years old and over). For information, email the church office at email@example.com or call 317-873-4948.
