Women's Ministry

Connect with Jesus and connect with other women.

Meaningful Connection.

Women in and outside Simple Church are welcome to be a part of a group of women who encourage, challenge, comfort, and cheer on each other into a deeper relationship with Jesus and a more balanced, authentic life at home, at work, and in their communities.

We keep it simple. Let's be real - we're super busy! But we're not willing to sacrifice our relationships with Jesus and with other strong women so we connect in three main ways:

  • Seasonal Bible Studies
  • Connection Events
  • One-on-one Mentoring

Current Study:

Miracles of Jesus Study

We know Jesus works in miraculous ways, but do we believe he can do it with our own circumstances?

In Miracles of Jesus: A Study of What Jesus Makes Possible you will spend time exploring all four gospels of the Bible and discovering the ways Jesus healed, provided, calmed, and resurrected. This study is about believing in the power of God who can accomplish anything. There's nothing too big and there's nothing too small for us to bring to him. 

When we take time to learn about the overflowing kindness Jesus demonstrated to all kinds of people through miracles during his time on earth, we realize that he is radically generous, compassionate, and honoring of all people. As you watch teaching from the places in Israel where Jesus performed miracles and dig into God’s Word, you will end the study in awe of the Messiah who relentlessly, holistically seeks, saves, and restores us (then and now).

Through this study, we will discover how:

  • Jesus Responds to Our Needs
  • Jesus Calms Our Storms 
  • Jesus Offers Peace
  • Jesus Intervenes in the Impossible
  • Jesus Knows Our Hunger
  • Jesus Conquers Death
  • Jesus Empowers Us


This is an 8-week journey starting the week of February 17 and ending the week of April 13.

There are three group options available:

  • Tuesday PM in Pleasant Hill
  • Wednesday PM in Clive
  • Friday AM in Des Moines (off 42nd St from 235)

Books are $20 and will be given out at the first group meeting.


You will know what group you are in by February 10th and will be contacted by your group leader or host.
