Women's Ministry

There are several vibrant Women’s Ministries here at Birmingham UMC. These groups (WOW & EXHALE) are for the community and membership at the church is not required. 

WoW Fellowship

The WoW Ministry is a fellowship of women who desire to love and know God through the study of His Holy Word and the fellowship of other women. We offer a supportive place to be real, be transformed, and be in the world as an example of Christ’s love.

There are two options each week. Both meet in the Student Center (along Birmingham Highway). 
WEDNESDAY MORNINGS AT 9:30A.M. (childcare available)

Questions, registration or information? Email Jodi Christensen at jodichristensen@comcast.net.


Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist Sept. 8/9 through Oct. 20/21

Busyness and stillness. Topics we’ve covered, but how are we doing?  We know the harm of hurry and the necessity of quiet, but it can be so easy to kick into gear and promise ourselves, promise God, later we’ll get back on track. What are we sacrificing now for the promise of later? And can we really feel good about that promise?

We just walked through a period when circumstances forced us to stop.  Hard stop! Then life slowly started to fill back up again, as we knew it would. Have we adjusted our lives to reflect what we know to be God’s Will for our lives, or do we still feel powerless to the demands around and often in us?

Not running crazy? If life isn’t busy, how are we doing with intentional stillness? If we have the gift of a slower season, how well are we using it? In what ways are we connecting to God and helping others as the Body of Christ?

“Come alongside to rest, play, and recreate.” Shauna Niequist, Present Over Perfect


Ruth (Oct. 27/28 – Dec. 1/2)
Life Without Lack: Living in the Fullness of Psalm 23 (Jan. 5/6 – Feb. 23/24)
Go and Tell No One: Remember and Rest in the Secret & the Sacred (March 2/3 – April 13/14)

Exhale is a group for Mothers with children of all ages who want to experience authentic community, mothering support, personal growth and spiritual hope. 

The word “exhale” is to breathe out intentionally. Our prayer is for moms to be intentional about making time for themselves and to be intentional about being part of a group that will help them grow in their walk of faith and to grow as women, wives and mothers.

Interested? We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at exhale.moms@gmail.com.

September 14th from 9:30 to 11:30A.M. KICK OFF
