Welcome! The Women’s Ministry at Mountain View Community Church (MVCC) would like to invite you into a journey of meaningful and life-giving relationship. We believe that as a woman you were designed for A PERFECT relationship, and that is found only in Jesus Christ! You were also designed for relationship with others, not perfect relationships but grace-filled and authentic. We would love to be a part of helping you experience these relationships regardless of whether you have ever stepped foot in a church before or have been a Christian for a long time. Join us as we dive deeper into a relationship with Jesus and with other ladies at MVCC!
Our mission at Mountain View Community Church is to make Christ known as we passionately love him together. This is our mission in women’s ministry as well and our purpose is to equip and encourage you to live this out! We desire to be a group of women who seek to know, understand and apply God’s word which will enable us to both know God and make him known wherever we live, work and play and do this in community with other women who desire to love and live for Him.
We would love for you to get involved! Here are different events or ministries you can participate in:
Women’s Bible Study: Our hope is that each woman at MVCC would have the opportunity to grow in their confidence to study and apply God’s word in community for His glory, their joy and sanctification, and the good of other people. We use inductive and expository methods of study to observe, interpret and apply God’s Word. We have two forums of women’s bible study:
Group study: This is a larger group of women who meet weekly during the fall and spring semesters. Each week the participants do their study and then the group meets Wednesday mornings from 9-11 am to discuss the lesson.
Cohorts: A Women’s Bible Study Cohort is a group of 2 to 4 women banded together for the purpose of studying God’s word and growing in relationship with one another. Our desire would be that each woman at MVCC would have the opportunity to grow in their confidence to study and apply God’s word in community. In an effort to make this more accessible to women, we are providing the same method and material used during the group women’s bible study for ladies to use in smaller groups during times and in places that work best for them.
REAL Moms: REAL Moms is a ministry specifically for mothers – mostly mothers of preschoolers –but any and every mom is welcome! During this unique time of life the need for friendship with other moms and consistent doses of Godly input into our hearts is invaluable. Come be Refreshed, Encouraged, And Loved (REAL) as we experience Jesus together in our journey through motherhood.
Fall Women’s Retreat: Once a year (typically mid to late October) we take time to get away for extended equipping and relationship building through a retreat. Some years it is in the mountains, other years it is here in Fort Collins - it’s always wonderful!
Ladies Dessert Nights: Join us for a fun evening of getting to know other ladies and, well... chocolate! Our hope is to provide a welcoming environment to meet new friends and build relationships while being equipped and encouraged to love Jesus and love people. Find dates for upcoming dessert nights under "Upcoming Events" on the right column.
Women’s Backcountry Trips: in partnership with MVCC Backcountry Ministry, we are providing various trips for women to connect more deeply with Christ and each other through outdoor adventure. Most of these trips run in the summer, but not exclusively. We have offered day hikes, stand up paddle boarding, backpacking to a yurt, a surf trip and a ski trip.
The Big Picture…
As wonderful as these ministries are, there are two main environments that we desire each person at MVC to be a part of - the corporate gathering (Sunday worship) and intimate community (a Shepherding Ministry such as Lifegroups) These two environments will provide a lifetime of growth through worship, mission and community.

Are you new to MVC? We have a class called Biblical Distinctives that we would highly encourage you to attend. It is offered during the Summer, Fall and Spring with a focus on studying the bible and discussing topics such as church leadership, the authority of God’s Word, salvation, and spiritual gifts just to name a few. This would be a GREAT place to jump in if you would like to call MVCC your church home.
