Our desire in Resound Women's Ministries is to create an environment where you can grow in your relationship with God and other women.


Women's Bible Studies →

From September through May, we offer mid-week Bible studies for women from every age and stage of life. Our studies range in difficulty and outside time commitment. Meeting regularly for teaching, accountability, and friendship builds our personal commitment to follow Jesus passionately, connects us in mutual community, and makes us into committed disciples.


Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) →

Interested in serving in Women's Ministry? We are looking for 2-3 child care workers, and 1-2 seasoned moms to step in and help out as a mentor or discussion group leaders on Thursday mornings. 
We are always looking for seasoned Bible teachers and small group facilitators.  Please contact Heather to schedule an interview: 815-459-1095 x323 or

MOPS is a program for mothers of preschoolers, designed to fulfill the need for friendship, creativity, and spiritual growth. Begin your morning with a delicious brunch, small group discussions, creative activities, and teaching from a biblical perspective on topics relating to womanhood, marriage, parenting, and family relationships. The MOPPETS and Awana children's programs offer quality childcare with a spiritual emphasis through stories, games, and songs. Get more information for the 2016-17 MOPS program.

Women's Monthly Book Club

Join our women's book club where we meet once a month (every second Tuesday) to discuss and explore Christian fiction/non-fiction books. We will meet from 7-9 pm in Room 131 at EFCCL.

Questions, please contact Trista Johnson at or 608-642-1093


Book club will meet at Biaggi's in Algonquin (1524 South Randall Road) for dinner from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm.  For those of you who cannot make it until 7:00 pm that is fine!  The actual book club won't start until 7:00 pm, if needed.  

Please RSVP to Trista Johnson by May 2, so reservations can be made.  
(Reservations will be made on May 2)

We will be reading an "easier" Christian fiction for that evening, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson.  This is the first novel in the Wingfeather Saga, and is Young Adult fiction.  The hope is to read all four books in the next year to year and half - This series is loved by many in our church so we hope you'll give it try!  

Engage Groups

Throughout the year, we organize a number of friendship groups, designed to bring together women of similar interests and to be a front porch of sorts of Women's Ministries. Bring a friend and come hang out
at our monthly knitting group (Common Threads), or monthly hiking group (Hiker Chicks).

Common Threads: This monthly knitting and crocheting group meets on the second Friday of each month from 9:30 to 11:30 am in the South Lobby (by the Canopy Entrance). All skill levels are welcome,
so bring a project to work on and a friend or two!

Hiker Chicks: Each month, this group meets in the front parking lot of the church at 12:30 pm to
carpool to lunch (pack your own or stop with the group at Subway) and a two-hour hike of a local park
or forest preserve. If you'd like to receive email notifications about upcoming hikes or have questions, please contact Martha Schuelke. See below for a list of future 2017 hike dates.
