"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing" - 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We are committed to helping the women of Clifton grow in knowing, loving, and serving our Sovereign Creator God, and to work together as we grow in Christ-likeness, by His grace.
Our ministries focus on the Word of God, on evangelism and discipleship, and on many areas of practical service. We invite all women of Clifton to be involved as they are able. Our earnest prayer is that God will use these ministries for His glory and for our good.
For more information, or if you have questions, please contact: Jodi Ware, Deacon of Women's Ministry.
Woman's Retreat - The Joy of Prayer: Ladies of Clifton, we invite you to join us February 5-6, 2021 at Clifton Baptist Church for our 2021 Women's Retreat: The Joy of Prayer. We will have the privilege of hearing from our own Jodi Ware, Diane Schreiner and Cindy Martin as they share practical ways we can grow in the habit and discipline of prayer. While our retreat will follow our typical rhythm with one session on Friday night and two sessions on Saturday, we will not be arranging overnight accommodations or dinner Friday evening, or breakfast Saturday morning. We will provide lunch for Saturday afternoon. After a year of many bumps, hiccups, and disappointments, we so look forward to being (socially distanced) together, (masked) face to (masked) face!

See below for a list of our regular activities:
Women's Bible Studies
Women’s Bible studies are held during the fall (September – November) and spring (January – March) Tuesdays or Thursdays in a home or at the church. Also check the Clifton Messenger for announcements of periodic evening Bible Studies throughout the year.
The Children's Clothing Closet
This room provides an opportunity to share children's clothing (size newborn to size 6) and shoes. What your family no longer needs may be just what another family does need.
The women of Clifton are glad to provide meals as needed for: mothers of new babies, those with on-going health concerns, and elderly members of our body.
Meet 'N Greet
An annual event usually held the Tuesday evening after Labor Day. It is a structured yet informal evening full of fun, coffee, and getting to know other ladies.
Join us for our annual retreat, held on a Friday night and Saturday during the winter. This is a great opportunity for fellowship, teaching, personal reflection, worship, and fun.
Scarlet Hope’s vision is to engage women in the adult entertainment industry with the gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching them that salvation is found in Christ alone. Through holistic and gospel-centered career development, our vision is to see every woman know her identity in Christ and follow after Jesus, making disciples that make disciples. Clifton women can partner with this ministry through specific outreach opportunities (providing meals, providing gift bags for various holidays, prayer) and discipleship.
This group of empty nesters (and near-empty nesters) offers a few activities every year, some for couples and some for women. Ladies also meet once a month to pray for their unsaved, adult children.
Simeon Trust is an 8-week study on how to study and teach the Bible. It is in an easy to use, on-line format, taught by known and trusted teachers. The Simeon Trust program allows women to learn together, to discuss strategies and pitfalls, and to help one another as we talk through teaching outlines we prepare weekly. It costs $20 per attendee.
Showers - Baby and Wedding
We love to celebrate with newly engaged/married couples and first-time moms at Clifton, and we want to help you if you are interested in hosting a shower for someone and need help or ideas.
Summer Play Group
Mothers and children of Clifton are invited to gather for play, lunch, and fellowship at a variety of Louisville parks throughout the summer. Check the bulletin and Messenger for details.
We want to promote a culture of women mentoring women at Clifton. We seek to do this through connections within small groups, Sunday school classes, women's Bible studies, service opportunities, and other ministries. If you would like help finding a mentor, contact our deacon of Women's Ministry.
