Mission Statement
Cascade Women's Ministry exists to identify and meet the needs of women in our community by offering places of belonging, friendship, encouragement, and spiritual growth.

Joy Koontz is the Director of Women's Ministry at Cascade.  Feel free to contact Joy by email or call her at 360.794.4600.  She especially loves to meet for coffee & conversation!

Join our Women's Ministry Facebook Group to keep up to date on what's happening.

Something for Every Woman

We strive, in Women’s Ministry, to go beyond just knowing who Jesus is. We want the women of Cascade to be completely changed because of Him and their relationship to Him, and then be excited to share that with those around them.  

We want to touch the lives of women and girls through the transforming power of Jesus, teaching them to follow His example, and training them to minister to others.

Pathway Women’s Bible Studies

Our desire is that the women of Cascade grow more in love with God through studying His Word.  Bible studies are offered on Monday evenings and Tuesday mornings from September through May.  As we meet and study together, we learn to  know, care for, and love each other as directed by God in His Word.

Pathway studies for Winter 2017

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
is a place to encourage, equip, and help women become the best moms they can be.  Women who are pregnant or have young children (birth through kindergarten) are all invited to join MOPS.  Moms come from all walks of life, but share one desire—to be great moms!  Meetings are held every 1st and 3rd Friday from September through May.  Childcare (Moppets) is provided for your kiddos so you can have a break.  

This year we will run wildly toward wonder, hope and kindness because We are the Starry Eyed and we choose to be light.

Women's Retreats

Retreats are all about getting away for a time of refreshment, fun, spiritual growth and making friends.  Cascade Women's Retreat happens every other Spring at the beautiful Cedar Springs Retreat Center in Lynden, Washington and is usually Friday night - Sunday afternoon.   Great speakers, yummy food, comfortable lodgings, and just the right balance of free time and planned activities.  

Women's Retreat 2017
The Best Yes - Making Wise Decisions in the
Midst of Endless Demands

Do you find yourself spending a lot of time figuring out when to say yes and when to say no, thinking about how to manage your time, reduce stress, do your best for your family, find a little time for yourself? Lysa TerKeurst found herself in that same situation until she learned the power of “the best yes”, the choice that shapes all of our other choices. Along with Lysa’s DVD messages, speakers will help us discover how to balance the disease to please with the command to love.


$175.00 per person / double/triple occupancy
Includes two nights and fours meals - Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday breakfast. The retreat center will accommodate food allergies and vegetarian/vegan preferences.
Sorry, we are unable to accommodate nursing babies.


Our planned sessions include worship,  games, prayer and fellowship.  During free time, anything goes!  The retreat center has lovely grounds for light walks and vigorous hikes.  Of course, a nap is an option, too!

What to Bring:

Clothes for both indoor and outdoor activities (keep in mind that it may be wet and chilly), snacks to share, bathroom accessories, Bible, pen, notebook, flashlight, earplugs, hobby materials.  All towels, linens, and bedding are provided.

The Abide Retreat is a weekend designed to refresh and restore as you come and abide in God's presence.  It is generally held in early November each year. Whether your life is filled with peace or stress, struggle or freedom, we believe His voice is calling you to quiet the noise of life and the distractions around you to simply draw close to God in worship, prayer and reflection on His Word.
