Women's Ministry

The Women’s Ministry of Mount Zion is committed to equipping and empowering our women to glorify God and to use their God-given gifts by developing a passion for God’s Word, cultivating a heart of worship and a passion for prayer, providing a community in which to build godly relationships, and fostering a desire for godly accountability, discipleship, and evangelism.

  • pathways: lessons from esther - from providence to purpose

    Led by Ruth Kirkland and Beth Smith.  6 weeks. The story of Esther appears to be a series of coincidences that deliver the Jews from certain death.  However, God selected Esther for a particular purpose and a particular time in the history of His chosen people.  These resources will help you discover the power of God's providence in the midst of your personal pain, fear, gain, loss, and love.  You'll see that God has a purpose for your life, and He uses every action and event that occurs in it to make that purpose a reality. 

  • psalm 23: the shepherd with me

    Led by Cindy Leaphart and Taby Rogers.  7 weeks.  "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want."  Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven't experienced its power in their lives.  This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps.  It's more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life.  In this study, you will gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23.  Explore the depths of God's compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth.  Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd's goodness throughout each season of life.  

  • the power of a godly grandparent: leaving a spiritual legacy: for grandparents of grandchildren from birth through adulthood

    Led by Joy Smith and Kathy Blades.  8 weeks.  You may or may not have material wealth to leave your grandchildren, but you have a rich heritage to pass on.  Give your grandchildren the power of unconditional love, faithful prayer, and a spiritual legacy.  Give your grandchildren the power of your own testimony of faith and show them how God will be faithful through the coming generations.  God gives grandparents a sacred trust - an opportunity to imprint another generation with the message of His faithfulness.  You can stand in the gap by being a godly example and praying for your grandchildren.  

  • finding god faithful - a study on the life of joseph

    Led by Sherry Rist and Pat Dykes.  10-12 weeks.  Trace the path of Joseph's life in the book of Genesis to observe how God's sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments.  Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God's plan when life doesn't make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance.  His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.  

Women's missionary union (WMU)

In 1888, a handful of Baptist Women dedicated to the cause of missions founded WMU. Since that time, WMU has become the largest Protestant organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million.


Mount Zion has deep roots in WMU as well, forming their own WMU in 1914. We continue that tradition today with many age-level mission organizations. These organizations include Women on Mission, Girls of Grace Acteens, Girls in Action and Mission Friends.


For detailed information about WMU, contact Kenya Jernigan, MZBC WMU Director at kenya@posum.com

Women on Mission

Women on Mission for women ages 18 and up will equip Christian women to follow God’s call into missions awareness, action and advocacy. We pray together, fellowship, and serve in missions.
