Women at Ingleside
At Ingleside, women of all ages and life stages are a vital part of the congregation. From the platform in worship, within Bible studies, classes, and groups, as leaders serving in programs and ministries throughout the church, and on trips around the world, women are encouraged to live their lives as fully devoted followers of Christ.
Specific needs of women are met throughout the year within seasonal Bible studies. These studies, just for women, meet throughout the year to provide ongoing opportunities for spiritual growth and relational connection. Click here for more information on Women's seasonal studies.
In addition to checking out our seasonal Bible studies, we also offer development and growth through TAG (Thriving Across Generations). The TAG ministry exists to strengthen and model mentoring relationships across generations.
This year we are reading Fervent by Pricilla Shirer, and are focusing on serious, specific, strategic prayer. The movie War Room was part of our TAG Kickoff celebration this year. The book and copies of the DVD are available for purchase in the Ingleside Bookstore and Cafe.
TAG, Thriving Across Generations
Each year, TAG small groups form to live out the biblical mandate of Titus 2:3-5 for authentic relationships between women. These relationships grow across generations in the body of Christ at Ingleside to encourage one another to follow Christ for God’s glory.
Participants register in December and January for at least a one-year commitment to meet together, to discuss and learn from a suggested book, and to share their personal spiritual journey with one another.

tag FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is TAG?
TAG, Thriving Across Generations, is a multi-generational, relationship-based women’s small group ministry. Groups are inspired by the biblical plea in Titus 2:3-5 for older women to pour into younger women and help them grow in their walk with Christ. Each group has two to three mentors and six to ten members.
When and where do groups meet?
Groups meet once a month. With social distancing, groups may choose to meet in homes, backyards, at our church, or even at a park. Each group is unique in how they meet.
What do we do in TAG?
During each meeting, mentors facilitate prayer and discussion of a chapter of the current year's chosen book. Each meeting can be different. We may laugh or cry as we share what is going on in our lives, encourage one another, and provide each other with a Christian support system.
How do I get into a group?
You will be assigned to a group that meets based upon the availability that you provided in registration.
Who are the mentors?
Mentors are women of Ingleside who love the Lord and are empty nesters with some life experience behind them. Their goal is to form relationships with women of various ages, teach them to pursue holiness, and to value the word of God.
What is expected of me?
Attend each monthly meeting, and communicate with your TAG leader regularly. Read a chapter in the book before each meeting, and be willing to participate in conversation.
The more you invest, the more you’ll reap!
