Sharon Sabo, Director
Covenant Women seek to enable all women of Covenant to:
- Grow in faith
- Develop supportive relationships with sisters in Christ
- Discover and use their gifts for ministry
...to glorify God within their family unit, Covenant Church and the community.
Covenant Women's Bible studies appeal to women of all ages and levels of spiritual maturity. Small group studies encourage understanding and application of the Scriptures and encourage women to think and live biblically. These studies provide a nurturing atmosphere of love, encouragement, and acceptance, and give women an opportunity to share experiences, thoughts, and needs.
If you've ever wrestled with insecurity, guilt, impossible standards of your own making or wondered what your purpose is...then this study is for you! Like a trusted friend, author and licensed counselor Holley Gerth gently demonstrates how to forget the lies and expectations of the world and instead believe that God loves you and says you’re amazing!
$10 will cover the cost of the materials. Payment will be collected at the first class. Please email Cindy Esposito (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, September 17 to sign up.

Connect4Women | Partners in Prayer
Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart. Colossians 4:2
Who: Any woman at Covenant Church Naples who desires a one-on-one prayer partnership with another Covenant woman, to share herself, her needs, desires, requests, and praises in a safe and intimate environment of her own choosing.
What: Times of prayer, at least once a month for one year (through December 2018). You can choose to meet weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly either in person or by phone. Email and text messaging might be helpful ways to share requests and praises between times. Together choose what works for the both of you.
Why: Partners in Prayer are powerful.
You will talk often, getting to know one another in a deeper more meaningful way.
You will share what’s on your hearts, praying for your needs or those of the world.
You will pray without ceasing. Prayer request sharing is the impetus for praying daily.
You will see prayers answered. Write your requests down and prepare to be amazed!
You will hold each other accountable, always seeking to help each other grow in grace.
You will praise God together, reminding each other of God’s character and love.
How: Once you receive the name of your Partner in Prayer, set up a time to meet. Then choose what works for frequency, use of technology, time and day, and length of time to pray. A consistent time will encourage faithfulness in prayer.
Benefits: Makes us accountable. Scheduled prayer times help keep us focused.
It develops intimacy. Prayer with another allows heart-felt sharing.
It makes God real. It gives the chance to experience God’s love in a tangible manner.
How long: Once assigned, Partners commit to pray together at least once a month for one year—through December 2018. At that time, you may choose to stay together, ask for another Prayer Partner, or take a break.
Age: ("over 60" or "younger than 60"), and if you would like a prayer partner who is "about your age" or "younger/older than you" to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be contacted within the month with your new Prayer Partner's information.
To get started, email your name, phone number, and you will be contacted within the month with your new Prayer Partner’s information. From there it’s up to you. If you need help getting started, need ideas about what to do, or just have questions, email Becky Neve at email@example.com.
