Welcome to the WomensLife Ministry page!! We are so blessed that you chose to take a moment out of your hectic schedule to check us out. The goal for this ministry is to impact the lives of women and to further the gospel message of Jesus Christ through connecting, growing, and living life together. WomensLife Ministry at Authentic Life Church currently has two ways to get involved. Please continue reading for more information on these opportunities and to meet our ministry directors.
Laurie Thomas - Women’s Ministry Director
Laurie Thomas has had a heart for women's ministry a long time.
Laurie and her husband Dan have been with Authentic Life Church since it began in 2014 and were part of the original core team of families sent from 22nd Street Baptist Church to help launch the church.
With a passion for women’s ministry, Laurie works with a team of women to bring opportunities for fellowship, discipleship engagement and missional outreach which supports the mission and vision of Authentic Life Church. Together, we connect people to one another and to Jesus, grow in our relationship to one another and to Jesus and live out what God is calling us to do.
"The more we connect as wives, mothers, and sisters in Christ - the better for the Body, for the whole Church, and for our homes. We are a tribe!"
Laurie and Dan have been married since 1998 years and have twins who were born in 2007.
A dedicated time of one on one or small group discipleship geared towards growing together and in our knowledge of Jesus Christ so that we may grow-up other sisters in Christ and share the Gospel with others. Please email Laurie@AuthenticLifeAz.com if you are interested.
A monthly Women's Fellowship time centered around a single theme. The purpose of this group is Inward Transformation focusing on Romans 12:2, Outward Projection focusing on Colossians 3:12-14, and Disciplining Others focused on Titus 2:7-8. Our goal is to learn what Scripture has to say regarding a woman's life and to have fun while doing it. This group is open to all Authentic Life Church ladies who love to relax and have a good time.
First Thursday Prayer- Join us as we gather together to pray on the first Thursday of every month. We meet in the prayer room at 22nd Street Baptist Church at 6:00 pm. This dedicated time of prayer is led by the Spirit with an intentional focus to pray one another, for our church, our surrounding neighborhoods, our city, our schools, our local government, the state, and the nation. We try and keep to an hour and a half. Please email Laurie@AuthenticLifeAZ.com if you are interested.
