About Our Women’s Ministry
The STF Women’s Ministry encourages and equips women to grow in their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ through Bible study, prayer, evangelism, discipleship/mentoring, and fellowship and engages women to reach others for Christ in their sphere of influence. The Bible studies, programs, and events are designed to foster connection among women, especially for those who are new to any of these activities.
Our mission statement is to encourage and equip women to grow in their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ through Bible study, prayer, evangelism, discipleship, and fellowship and to engage women to reach others for Christ in their sphere of influence.
“…that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience, joyously giving thanks to the Father…” Col. 1:9-12
Ladies, we are so excited to gather this Christmas season for an evening filled with a time of worship from our own all-girl band, fellowship as we get to know the women on STF’s staff, and updates about upcoming service opportunities and events! As in past years, we’ll be supporting a local Christian ministry, Created Tampa, by enjoying refreshments prepared by Created Cuisine, an initiative developed by Created. If you’d like to join us in providing additional support, we will be accepting cash or check donations. This is completely optional!

Seasonal Bible Studies
We offer Bible studies every Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer on Monday evenings and Tuesday mornings and start at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 a.m., respectively. The timeframes range from an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes. Generally, we begin with discussion in the small groups followed by the video sessions with small groups combined. There is no cost for Bible studies. However, each participant is expected to purchase their book online. Details to purchase a book are provided upon registration of the Bible study.
Night of Gathering
Every 3 months, our ministry hosts a Women’s Night of Gathering. These nights are a time of worship, and there is usually a guest speaker. Outreach is an important component of Women’s, so that aspect is integrated into our Christmas Night of Gathering. While most of our events are for 18 years and older, Night of Gathering is also open to highschool students.
New Moms outreach
Are you a first-time mom expecting or adopting? Be sure to check out our New Moms Outreach for encouragement and support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I join a Bible study group after it has started?
Yes, please feel free to register at any point in time.
Can I be placed in the same group as my friend?
Sure, as long as there is room in the group. We ask that you limit that request to not more than three friends.
Is childcare offered during Bible study?
We do our best to secure childcare workers so it depends on their availability. When Iit is available, there is a deadline for registrations, spots are limited.
There are various teams in Women’s as follows: (1) Bible Study; (2) Prayer Team; (3) New Moms Outreach; (4) Nights of Gathering; (5) Annual Fall Conference; and (6) Outreach.
Each of these teams has different volunteer needs. The annual Fall Conference has the greatest needs with separate teams for which women may volunteer (such as, Decorations, Greeters, Food, Table facilitators, Set up & Break down, Counselors, Guest Speaker, etc.). Volunteer time commitment may be isolated to only the event or for several months leading up to the event.
