About Women’s Ministry
The Women’s Ministry of New Life Dresher seeks to help women grow together in faith in Jesus Christ, the knowledge of His Word and in love for one another.
2017-18 Women’s Bible Study
Women’s Bible Study is a great place to get to know other women deeply as we study God’s Word together. There are study questions for each passage to do ahead of time each week. And then a large-group teaching time, taught by a rotation of NLD women, is followed by small-group discussion.
Join us this year as we study the Gospel of Matthew and dig deeply into the riches of the Good News that Jesus reveals through his life, ministry and teaching. We are praying the Holy Spirit will refresh our hearts as we discover Jesus as the Messiah, the King, the unifier between Jew and Gentile, and the Savior, whose grace we rely on each day as we live out His calling on our lives to be His disciples in this world! We hope you will journey with us!
It is not too late to join our WBS for 2017-18! Women are welcome to come, but it is helpful if you email Annie Notary if you plan on coming.
Please join us!

First Friday Fellowship:
We are starting a women’s art and fellowship night called First Friday Fellowship. The idea is to gather and have some fun doing art together. It is a creative community art-making experience – no artist talent or experience necessary! We are meeting in Linda Ruth’s home and therefore need to limit the number of women to 15 because of the smaller space and also to provide an intimate and encouraging environment. CLICK HERE to view the invite for more details. Registration for the next FFF on February 2 will open soon. The tentative upcoming dates are: Feb. 2, April 6, and June 1.
*SAVE THE DATE! The next NLD Women’s retreat will be April 20-22, 2018 at Harvey Cedars*
2017 Women’s Retreat:
Everyday Eternal: Embracing God’s Promises & Purpose in Your Life
The weather was wet but the company was cozy at Harvey Cedars on Long Beach Island, NJ. We had four great talks, including two by Sue Lutz, who was with us for the last time as our lead pastor’s wife. The small groups enabled us to apply and pray about what we had learned, and there was lots of unstructured time on Saturday afternoon to pursue relationships, let our artistic juices flow and experience the grace of God through his promises. You may have seen the group banner hanging in the lobby at the church.
Were you unable to make it? Or were you only able to be there Saturday? You can still listen to the talks here:
