TR Naz Embolden Women's Ministry exists to develop a caring community of women devoted to Christ who come together for encouragement, discipleship, and fellowship. We accomplish this through various ministries such as Women's Bible Study, (Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall Session studies), "One Another Ministries": a mentorship ministry, Women's One Day Simulcast Conferences, Coffee On The Patio events, our TRNaz Ladies' Scripture Writing Group, Book Study Groups, our Ladies' Advent Tea (a cherished, favorite event each year) and many other seasonal and timely ladies events & gatherings. 

As you can see, Embolden Women's Ministries offers something for everyone on their spiritual journey.  Let us come alongside you as we learn, grow, connect & serve, together. 
It is our desire to equip women to know the Lord and lead with strength, using their gifts and talents to serve within the church and out in our community.

To be a part of any of our Women's Ministries events, or for any questions, please contact our Embolden Women's Ministries Director, Tracey Saunders at traceysaunders@threeriversnazarene.org




Our women's Bible study aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of God's Word.  As we study and apply scripture together, we strengthen one another in our faith journeys and we also discover our gifts and talents as we build each other up and encourage one another, just as Jesus instructs us as His disciples. 

What is Needed: 

A heart to know Jesus through spending time in His Word.  A desire to be in fellowship with other Christ-following women, building up one another.  A desire to discover how God's Word applies directly to your everyday life.

Women’s Winter Session Bible Studies 2024


                                          Monday Night Bible Study

                                                         Beginning January 15, 2024, 6:30-8PM

   "Starved: Why We Need a Spiritual Diet Change to Move Us from Tired, Anxious, and Overwhelmed to Fulfilled, Whole, and Free"
Facilitator: Tracey Saunders

About Starved: 

Change your spiritual diet and start enjoying a fulfilling faith.

Countless Christians are struggling with the never-ending chaos consuming our world. To find a way out of the overwhelm, we turn to our phones, social media, politics, and a million other little things, desperate for relief. But over time, these imposters leave us weak, weary, and starving. Now more than ever is the perfect time to examine what we are feeding our souls so that we can receive the sustenance we need.

In this six-session Bible study companion to the book Starved, popular author and teacher Amy Seiffert helps readers sweep out their spiritual pantry and replace those old ingredients with new biblical principles that will provide healthy change in real, lasting ways.

Throughout the Starved Bible Study, which is designed for both individuals and groups, Amy invites you to join her in practicing what it means to leave behind sluggish spirituality by offering healthy alternatives such as:

 • putting down our phones to find genuine connection;

 • letting go of anxiety and fear to discover peace;

 • setting aside exhaustion so we can rest and be renewed; and more.

In this study, we welcome you to the table, inviting you to sit down and give thanks and begin the good, holy work of indulging in spiritual nourishment that only comes from Jesus. Six truths, six practices, six weeks of walking out of starvation and into satisfaction.

About Experiencing God:

Over the years, God has used the truths of Experiencing God to awaken believers to a radically God-centered way of life. As a result, millions have come to know God intimately, to recognize His voice, and to understand His will for their lives. This new edition is revised, updated, and ready to help you again—or for the very first time—experience your Creator.

God is inviting you into an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to you His will, His ways, and His work. When you recognize where God is working, you can join Him in what He is doing. Carefully listening to His voice will anchor you in His plan and set you free to live it with boldness and freedom. Then you will experience God doing through you what only He can do.

Coffee On The Patio!

A low-key, relaxing time of sun (and shade), women & connecting.

Selected Saturdays this summer, 8:30-10:30AM!

Come for the full two hours or pop in for however long you can — on the parsonage patio (Tracey Saunders’ home) for conversation, laughter, coffee & iced tea, a few breakfast goodies.  


Check back here in May for our upcoming Coffee On The Patio Summer 2024 dates!


Our Ladies' Scripture Writing Group is designed to help you focus and meditate on the scriptures as you write out each verse or passage daily. Every month a new topic or idea - or even an entire book of the Bible - is chosen and posted in our Facebook group. This idea is to engage us with one another, while immersing ourselves in the truth of God's Word. 

Topics/titles of our scripture writing plans have included Encouragement From God's Word, The Names of Jesus, Give Thanks to The Lord, The Book of Philippians, Finding Him In The Psalms, etc. 

We invite you to join us! Anytime! You'll also find that it is not a requirement, nor necessary, to do this perfectly. It's not an all or nothing idea, its "every little bit of scripture in our hearts and minds is always beneficial".  

So grab a journal and maybe some pretty pens, and join us, we love to add new members!
