Women of God

On-campus events and meetings can be a rare sight during this semester, but one fairly new organization has been hosting hybrid events since the start of the spring semester. 

Women of God is a new organization created by Marlin Ministries. Even though the Women of God meetings have a virtual option for those who can not attend in-person, it is one of the few organizations that meet weekly in-person. 

Women of God “is a community of women that come together to support one another, helping them grow in their relationship with God,” said Brooke Erickson, leader and founder of Women of God. 

The typical meeting for Women of God consists of a check-in with their members, prayer, scripture reading and discussion, and an ending prayer. Each meeting will have a topic to discuss, and can even include lesson plans for that theme. 

Erickson explained that there is a chosen theme each semester that all the lessons and scripture will connect back to. The main goal of the organization is to “see spiritual growth in women,” said Erickson. 

Even though Women of God does not have any events planned for this semester currently, they have hosted events in the past such as tea parties and special themed nights of discussion. 

Students can join Women of God every Monday night from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Greer 155. Students can also attend virtually by reaching out to Brooke Erickson for the Zoom link. 

For more information and updates, students can follow Women of God on Instagram @mm_women_of_god or keep an eye out for email updates from Marlin Ministries.

Women of God welcomes all women of any type of religious background. Erickson encourages female students to join Women of God to “come learn and grow in your relationship with God.”
