Women's Ministry

The Marble Women’s Ministry is an open, diverse community of Christian Women. If you are a woman looking for a place to be inspired and nurtured in your spiritual growth and to be supported through the challenges of life, we invite you to join us.

All women are invited to join the Marble Women’s Ministry for our first in-person Spa Day for the Soul since the pandemic began. The theme is Building Resilience through Playing and Praying.

Our keynote speaker, Rev. Elise Brown, will talk about "Resilience in Women of the Bible". Then, we will come together, connect, and build resilience through Laughing Yoga, Self-Massage, and Chi Kung, Journaling, a Labyrinth Walk, Dance, Hands-on activities, and more.

Held at Marble Collegiate Church (enter at 1 W. 29th Street). Face masks are required, but proof of vaccination is no longer mandatory.

Registration is required by Thursday, April 28; no charge to attend. This is a popular event each year so register early; limited capacity.

Film Night: “Eating You Alive” (Online)

Gather with your friends for an online screening via Zoom of the documentary EATING YOU ALIVE. This is an informative, motivating, and valuable film filled with inspiring stories of people across the U.S. who transformed their health simply by changing their diet. After viewing the film, we’ll have a discussion to share thoughts and ideas about what we’ve seen.

EATING YOU ALIVE tells the stories of people facing varied health crises and how, when they altered their way of eating, they ultimately healed themselves. By making better choices with our diet, we positively impact not only our own health but the lives of all animals and the life of Mother Earth.
