The purpose of Cultivate is to create a sense of belonging for women of our church and community where we can grow in our faith, prayer life and friendships through studying God's word, serving his people and shepherding one another along life's journey. In conjunction with UMW, Cultivate strives to provide multiple opportunities for women to gather and develop meaningful relationships as they draw even closer to Christ.

Through small group Bible and book studies, service projects and social gatherings, Cultivate hopes to create safe spaces to discuss and learn how to deal with the struggles of everyday life, the joys and heartaches that come with each stage of life and offer women the chance to encourage each other, be vulnerable with one another and develop more Christian friendships and support systems that are multi-generational. We hope you join us!

  • Dare to Lead by Brené Brown - Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now she’s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential. This study is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership. Led by Virginia Jones on Monday evenings from 6:00 p.m - 7:30 p.m. - # 5 Rollingwood, Tuscaloosa, 35406.
