Women’s Ministry

Anchored and Reaching Out

Our mission in Women’s Ministry is to invite women into a relationship with Jesus Christ, equip them to become disciples of Jesus Christ, and to encourage relationships marked by love and serving others.


“Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, 

as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another- and all the more as we see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10: 24-25


Women were uniquely created to be in relationship to support and encourage one another. At Hebron, Women’s Ministry provides opportunities for women to come together to grow in community and spirit alongside one another at quarterly large group events, groves, or smaller groups as needed to worship, learn, and share their lives with one another- we would love if you would consider participating! Each woman’s has the potential to be used by God when she makes herself available. Let’s be the church together!  

Women’s Ministry has 4 teams to support and serve the women at Hebron! We welcome you to join us in serving on one of these teams. Contact Jen Balkey to get involved.

Assimilation Team: We don’t want any woman slipping thru the cracks- help us get women engaged and integrated into ministry here at Hebron. 

Building-Up Team: The spiritual growth of women is at the heart of what we are about. This team will coordinate with Hebron’s Discipleship Team to focus on intentional steps to deepen women’s relationships with Christ and support those women who are leading groves.

 Care and Comfort Team: Women in need of extra care and attention require people with compassion that want to intentionally fulfill Christ’s mission of caring for others. 

 Devoted Dudes: We want to make sure ALL women are able to participate in opportunities to grow and connect. It would be a blessing to have some ‘devoted dudes’ to provide childcare during women’s events (appropriate clearances required).

When you say YES to Women’s Ministry you Say YES to: 

Encouragement, compassion, spiritual growth, love, prayer, discipleship, relationships, acceptance, support

Summer Sensation


Join us

Wednesday,  July 11th

6:30 - 8pm

Penn Hills Universal Park- Schrott Pavillion

1 Memorial Park Ln, Penn Hills, PA 15235

This is a fun casual opportunity to gather with other women from Hebron and invite your friends and neighbors. We will enjoy fresh peaches and ice cream. Be encouraged and uplifted. 

Shirley Dubeau will join us to share a process for getting into the scripture that she has found helpful. 

Connecting the Dots: 

Reading, Understanding and Applying Scripture to Our Lives.

Do you believe 2 Timothy 3:16: "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work"?  Yet have you ever feel like the Bible is just too hard to understand without someone there to lead you? 


How do we get to the place where the author of Hebrews (in verses 5:12-14) encourages us to arrive? His desire is to see his readers grow from babes living on milk toward adults desiring the solid food of discerning good from evil. 


What can we do to move to the place where we become trained and skilled at discerning and rightly dividing the Word of Truth?   Wherever you are in your walk, Shirley's goal is for you to go away with at least one idea that may help you in moving forward in your reading of the Word of God.

mom squad

Faith. Friendship. Fun

MOM Squad is an opportunity for expecting moms and moms of munchkins (up to 1 yr; siblings welcome to attend unless otherwise specified) to gather together.  

The goal is to provide a community for women in this special and challenging chapter of life to offer support, encouragement, and friendship to one another so that each woman knows she is not alone, has been given a special job, and can look to God for strength and comfort. 

Mom's were never meant to be alone. Moms need a community of other moms who understand their struggles and can offer encouragement, support, and friendship.


Sometimes moms feel alone or feel isolated from others. Some might feel like they are the only ones who struggle with a particular problem as moms or are at work and feel too busy to connect with friends. In fact, many get too busy to take time to build friendships.

We need to come together as moms- don't face motherhood alone! Make friends with others who are in it with you and be reminded of God's love and plan for you as a mom!!

Join us for an upcoming gathering!

Tuesday, July 24th 7-8:30pm (location TBA) or on

Wednesday, August 29th 10:30am-12pm at Riverside Park in Oakmont, PA. 

Contact Jen Balkey for more info: JLBalkey@gmail.com or 412-551-4688

Grove ministry: Each trimester there are many women’s groves to choose from throughout the week. A grove at Hebron is a group of people who gather together to grow deeper by Studying God’s Word, grow stronger by building friendships and grow beyond by serving the world. These communities offer a place for participants to be cared for and known. The Leadership at Hebron encourages grove involvement while believing in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit at work in these groups.
