Reliance Women

Leading women to know, love & serve Jesus.

The Women’s Ministry of Reliance Church exists to equip, edify, and encourage the ladies of our church family, local community, and the world in their relationship with Jesus.

To that end, we have many opportunities to help you get connected; and resources to help you grow. Be sure to fill out a Connect Card if you’re new or want to update your info, request prayer anytime and for any reason, and join the conversation throughout the week on Facebook and Instagram!

Join us each week as we gather for Bible study. Our gathering includes worship and teaching, then discussion in small groups. We will explore biblical content, while learning very practical ways to live as Christian woman in our homes and communities.

Keeping all the plates spinning

A Hairdresser

Coffee, Tea, or Soda?

Who has had the most influence in your spiritual life?
Wow, so many. Pastor Chuck Smith-His teachings that shaped my christian and leadership walk. His wife, Kay, who taught me how to be a pastor’s wife. June Hesterly, she tirelessly mentored me for years. Janie Alfred, who teaches me everyday how to be more like Jesus. And so many who I don’t know personally, but their books and resources have shaped my leadership life.

Food you can’t live without?

Which Bible character would you most likely to be best friends with?
No doubt, Priscilla. We could have tea together and talk theology. Sounds like a perfect day!

Favorite Quote of all time?
“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” — Brennan Manning (The Ragamuffin Gospel)

What is your hope for Reliance Church?
My true desire for our church is that it would outlive us all. That the Lord would raise up generation after generation of Bible-believing Christ followers to bring the good news long after we all leave this earth. That our church building would be used for hundreds of years to bring the Word of God to the people of God in Temecula and the surrounding areas.
