Ministries & Classes



VRL Women’s Ministry is the perfect opportunity for you to connect with other women in our church community. We admit to being imperfect, Jesus-loving, authentic women who desire to partner with you on this adventurous, yet sometimes difficult, walk of faith. You will discover a welcoming environment where women follow Jesus as Lord, friendships are developed, and laughter is contagious.

Women’s Ministry offers a dynamic MOMS GROUP where the busyness of this season in life can be shared and enjoyed with other moms. Inspiring BIBLE STUDIES & trustworthy SMALL GROUPS provide opportunity for growth—in deepening your relationship with Christ, and in fellowship with other women on the same journey. PRAYER AND WORSHIP GROUPS set aside dedicated time weekly to pray and honor the Lord. Our MENTORING MINISTRY desires to connect Christian women to come alongside you with wisdom and encouragement in your commitment to walk by faith, not by sight. SPECIAL EVENTS throughout the year provide additional opportunities to gather as women of God—to celebrate and discover how to stand firm on this adventure of faith.

There are several ways you can take your next step in joining other women within the VRL church family. We invite you to consider a place where you can belong and do real life together with other women.

“The Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer

1.9.18 – 2.26.18 | 6:30 – 8:30PM

Private Home in Spokane Valley

No Child Care Provided

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed.

If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, The Armor of God study is for you. The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

There is no charge for the study, but you will need to purchase your own bible study book ($13). This study meets in a private home located in the Spokane Valley. Space is limited for study so register early. There is no child care available. Use the below links to register and purchase study guide.

For more information and location, contact Tethra Wales 301.385.3547 or

Wednesday Morning

“Redeemed” by Angela Thomas-Pharr

1.17.18 - 2.28.18 | 9:30 – 11:30AM

Valley Real Life

Child Care Provided

Do you desire to fully the life of the redeemed? The moment you accept Jesus as the Lord over your life, you are redeemed. As the redeemed, we experience a lifelong journey of being transformed into His image. As redeemed women, we grow in the grace of Christ, and He calls us to extend grace to others.

Join us for the next 7 weeks as we explore the practical side of redemption, inviting us to lean upon Jesus for our real help and hope as we learn and grow alongside other women. As God slowly transforms us into His image, our passion for His Word and prayer will increase and our lives will reflect His glory.

There is no charge for the study, but you will need to purchase your own bible study book ($13). Child care is available for walking children ages 1+ up to first grade and is supported through participant donations. Younger children are welcome to stay with you during study. Space is limited for study and childcare, so register early. Childcare priority will be given to pre-registered women.

Use the links below to register for study, childcare and purchase bible study book. For more information, contact Hester Christensen @ or 509.828.3036.




Coming February 2018!

Titus2 Mentoring Women is a transforming discipleship journey for women who desire to grow deeper in their relationship with God. If you’re ready to take your next step in the adventure of faith, if you’re ready to be challenged and deepen your commitment to Christ—and do so with a loving community of women—then Titus2 is for you! Convenient monthly meetings, conducive to the group’s needs, make it flexible so women in all seasons and stages of life can participate.

One Mentor guides five to six women for 10 months in a small group setting. This Mentor helps nurture spiritual partnership, cultivate accountability and encourage development. Titus2 includes journaling, prayer, Bible study, scripture memory, and discussion of a relevant topic each month.


God’s Word is very specific about “older women equipping and training younger women” (Titus 2:3-5), encouraging them, challenging them and loving them. If you feel called to be a Mentor and would like more information about this opportunity to invest in the lives of women, please contact Terina, at or Hester at (Mentor applications are received July through September.)


If you’re a woman hungering for more depth and who desires to be mentored, the Mentee applications & covenant are available below. Please review the Titus2 Information sheet for details.
