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 classes and 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. See below for frequently asked questions regarding what TAG is all about.

Women's Studies


This study aims to encourage, support, and embrace those struggling through the grief of difficulty conceiving. If you are dealing with infertility, miscarriage, adoption, or prolonged waiting, we desire to help you find hope. We believe there is hope to be found during this season of waiting. We also know that genuine, life-giving help can come from others walking this journey together. We want to be a source of hope, strength, insight, freedom, and honest, heartfelt encouragement to those walking through what can feel like a very long and rocky path.

An invitation to study God's Word and connect with one another this fall. This inductive study of the book of Colossians will offer women a chance to stay connected to God each day through His word, no matter where they are. The goal is to learn and apply together an accessible method of studying scripture that can be catered to your schedule and preferences while being "knit together in love" with sisters in Christ through a time of prayer and sharing each week. Just come with a mind ready to dig and a heart ready to grow. Let's see what beautiful things may bloom!

In this 7-session study, join six beloved Bible teachers who will help you study prayers in the Bible that can inspire your own. You’ll learn that God welcomes your praise and lament, your thanksgiving and intercession. You’ll see examples of how to pray when you’re alone and when you’re gathered with others. Above all, you’ll notice there’s no one right way to pray. As you draw near to God through prayer, you’ll find your faith strengthened and your heart united to Christ.

Get Out of Your Head 
is a Biblical guide to discovering how to submit our minds to Christ because how we think shapes how we live. As we surrender every thought to Jesus, the promises of God flood our lives in profound ways. This study will help you identify the negative thought patterns that are keeping you stuck, understand the science behind why your thoughts can change your life, and recognize your God-given power to confront and overcome your toxic thoughts.

TAG Ministry 

TAG Registration for 2024 opens on November 1
Watch this video to get a glimpse of what TAG is really like:

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 for at least a one-year commitment to meet together, discuss and learn from a suggested book, and share their personal spiritual journey with one another.

Registration for 2024 TAG groups opens on November 1.

For more information, please check out the FAQs below, or contact Melanie Foster in the the Women's Ministry Office

Watch this video to understand the heart behind TAG:


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 on 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 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!
