Click Here to Register for the Fall Kick-Off Brunch and Women's Community Group Today!

Women's Community Group is a multi-generational gathering of women who come together to study the Bible, grow in their faith, and cultivate friendship.

A Different Format This Fall:
Both Mom Time and Women’s Community Group will study together the book of Acts in the Bible and how the first church looked using the material, "The Gospel on the Ground."

These groups will have an opportunity to form friendships across the generations as we pair small group breakouts into Sister Groups. Sister Groups are two breakout groups that will intentionally spend time together during the semester to form stronger friendships and model Titus 2 in our church.

Click here to order your workbook* for this fall semester.

*Each workbook now has a code for viewing each week's teaching video on your own if you miss a week with the large group video portion. This study also has a reading guide through the book of Acts we would encourage you to consider as well.

WOMEN'S COMMUNITY GROUP LEADERS

Nan Brinkerhoff 
I have four adult kids, one precious grandbaby named Ellie, and a Jack Russell named Fidget. My kids are scattered across the US and the world: Seattle, DC, Boston, and Birmingham. I am a retired pediatrician as of October 2020! I love The Church at Brook Hills and have been attending and involved in various aspects of serving for about 10 years. I enjoy reading, swimming, hiking and I do Pilates (although I can’t say I enjoy the pain of that).

 

 Deb Bengston 
I enjoy spending family time with my husband of 43 years and my two daughters’ families, which includes four precious grandchildren. I enjoy cooking, watching football, boating, and activities that bring people together. I am a retired teacher of 28 years. Since retirement, I have found a passion in teaching the Bible to women at a local addiction recovery facility, while also loving to gather at church with my BH women’s small group to study the Word and encourage and support one another.

Carol Brown
I have lived in Birmingham all my life. I have been married to Bill Brown for 54 wonderful years. We have two children and three grandchildren. I enjoy my family and love cooking for them on as many occasions as I can bring them together. Aside from leading the Women's Community Group, my husband and I lead a senior adult Community Group on Sunday mornings. I especially love the ministry which God has called me to with women.

Phaedra Galloway 
I live in Pelham with my husband and youngest daughter. I am a retired IT Project Manager, and I spend time with my three adult kids and taking care of my mom. I am blessed to volunteer at Blanket Fort Hope to fight against human trafficking and care for child survivors of sex trafficking. I lead and love a multigenerational women's bible study and attend a women's community bible study. 

Jan Hendrickson 
I've been married to Claude for 37 years and have three grown children. I am blessed with four grandchildren. I've led a multigenerational small group on Wednesday mornings for several years and I've learned so much more from them than they have from me. I also enjoy horseback riding and being outside!


Michelle Hower 
I live in Leeds with my husband, three sons, and my mom. I teach a multigenerational women's group on Wednesday morning. My husband and I lead a couple’s group on Sunday mornings, and I teach in preschool at Brook Hills on Wednesday nights. I enjoy painting and calligraphy. I really enjoy opportunities to do ministry in multigenerational ways.
