We strive 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.
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.
This Fall we are offering the following studies. Click on a picture to learn more about each study including dates, times and costs.

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.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19
What do you long for? What is the thing that your heart craves?
Is it possible that your deepest desire is to be free?
Free from worry.
Free from feeling stuck.
Free from hustling to be loved.
Free from a heaviness you can’t put your finger on.
Free from thinking you should be someone other than exactly who you are.
At the core, maybe what we are all longing for is to be Free Indeed.
Choosing freedom is a deeply spiritual act, one that our souls long for. That is why this year, we choose wild, unexpected freedom; the kind that brings more laughter and less worry, more contentment and less hustle. Freedom that is so contagious, the people around us are compelled toward their own liberation.
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.
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.
A ministry for moms and their daughters. Various classes and special events are offered throughout the year for girls ages 3 and up and their moms. Watch for the Annual Princess Party that happens each Spring. Put on your best princess dress and come discover how special each and every girl (and woman) is in God's eyes.
Mentoring is an exciting opportunity to experience joy and growth by participating in one on one friendships. If you are a woman who has been feeling the need to talk to another Christian woman and who wants support and encouragement in your faith journey, then join us for the Mentoring Orientation Luncheon, usually held each Spring.
REFIT® is a fitness concept that seeks to cultivate community and develop healthy relationships through fitness. Statistics show that accountability and adherence to fitness programs are increased when there is an atmosphere of "togetherness" woven into the fitness class. Our goal is to see REFIT® used as a fitness ministry or fitness outreach. REFIT® is all about engaging the heart as a muscle... and a soul.

Events are a great place to connect, unwind, and get to know other women. Many of these annual events have a huge outreach impact in our Sky Valley neighborhoods. We love opening the doors of Cascade Church and inviting women of all ages, backgrounds, and interests in.
