Refresh is a ministry to women of all ages at NorthWoods Church.  We hope to help women enjoy rich fellowship with one another and grow in their relationship with the Lord as they dive into God’s Word.

Our Theme Verse:

For I will satisfy the weary soul and every languishing soul, I will replenish.” – Jeremiah 31:25

We realize that most women feel overwhelmed by the demands they face each day.  Through every Refresh gathering, we hope to encourage women and point them to the Lord, Who is the lifter of our souls.  There are two primary ministries of Refresh: Women’s Bible Studies and Women’s Fellowships/Events.


These are Bible studies that seek to meet women’s spiritual needs.  There are four primary women’s groups that are currently meeting.

1st Sunday Refresh Bible Study

This is a gathering for women that meets on the first Sunday of each month at 10:45 am in the NorthWoods Student Center and is led by Julie Greenbank.  Women of all ages are invited to get involved in a discussion-based study that centers on God’s Word.  No registration is needed to attend.

Morning Women’s Bible Study

This gathering, led by Pam Castrale, is a weekday morning Bible study that meetings on Tuesdays at 10:00 am at 1839 McCuthanville Ct.  They are typically studying through a book of the Bible.  To register, please contact us.

Afternoon Women’s Study

Fran Devine leads this study for women, every other Thursday @ 1:30 pm at 3028 Comfort Court.  They are currently doing a study of a book on character called Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World.  Please contact us if you’d like to have more information about attending.

These gatherings are designed to help women build relationships, have fun, and deal with the issues that are relevant to their lives.  We try to schedule these on a monthly basis and typically ask women to sign up so that we can set up appropriately.  Please watch the bulletin for upcoming events.  Many of these will be promoted in the “Events” section of section of the website.

We’d love for you to join us for our next event!
