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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org (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.

Our Mugs & Muffins mornings are special events that take place twice a year (once during the fall and spring 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. Our next event is planned for early May and details will be forthcoming.
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. Summer Study sign-up information for 2023 will be released in the Spring.
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. In neighborhoods throughout the community, women from our body hosted groups of 10-15 women. This was accomplished "progressively" by teaming up in groups of 3 hostesses to provide a meal that took place across 3 separate homes. One home was designated for appetizers, the next for the main entree course and the final home provided dessert. Women who signed up were prayerfully placed in groups to provide an opportunity for new relationships to be built as well as existing relationships to be strengthened. Group members moved through each part of the meal together. We are delighted that so many memories have been made through this ministry.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-873-4948.
