Women's Ministry at Highland
The desire of Women’s Ministry is to support and encourage women through fellowship, doctrinally sound Bible teaching, prayer, mentorship, discipleship, and service to the church and community. Our main goal is to glorify God by helping women take the next step in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
It is our belief that as we study God's Word in community with other women, we will be built up and enabled to know God in a greater way, serve others better, encourage one another, and learn how to live worthy of the calling that the Bible reveals to us. Take the next step and join us.
Classes for women meet at a variety of times, places, and campuses. Please check the Highland Happenings publication on the Publications and Forms page or Highland's calendar for the latest studies. If a class requires registration it will appear on the Registration page of the website. New participants are welcome anytime to any of our studies.
Bible study resources are available for personal or group studies.

Mothers of preschoolers (MOPS)
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Program: The MOPS International program at Highland is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs, making connections, and experiencing God's love through relationships and resources. The purpose of MOPS International is to encourage, equip, and develop every mother who has preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.
MOPS exists for all moms who share a similar desire to be the very best mom they can be! MOPS meets at Highland on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month during the school year from 9:15-11:15 a.m. Please check the calendar page for future dates.
Childcare is limited, so please call ahead if you are interested in attending and need childcare. Registration and scholarship forms are available on our Publications and Form page. If you have general MOPS or childcare questions, please contact Marjolein Guerisma at 715-566-4762 or
