Great Commission Women
Great Commission Women is an auxiliary ministry of The Alliance which is committed to developing vibrant women’s ministries district wide and in the local church. Here at Lafayette Alliance our desire is to serve together with other women in Northeastern District (New York State) Alliance churches in proclaiming the message of Jesus, promoting worldwide missions, and energizing our District International Workers through prayer, financial support and encouragement. Our Lafayette GCW group meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:30 – 11:00am for fellowship, encouragement, a missionary update, devotional and prayer. All teen girls and women are considered Great Commission Women and are welcome. In addition to our regular monthly meetings, two district wide retreats are held each year, one in April, at the Holiday Inn in Auburn, NY, and another in September at beautiful Delta Lake Bible Conference Center in Rome, NY. Our mission: equipping women to live the Word, do the work, and reach the world!

Side by Side Counseling
Side by Side Counseling Ministry for women seeks to glorify God by walking with women, encouraging them to love God and follow Jesus, looking to Him for wisdom and help,encouraging them to walk closer to Christ in the midst of their struggles, big or small.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Under Pastoral leadership,we are available to lend a listening ear, prepared to walk along side you, encouraging you to walk closer to Christ in the midst of your struggles.Our job will not be to rescue you from your current circumstances, but point you to our Redeemer. Everything we experience in life is an opportunity to pray, knowing our Great God loves His daughters. With the Scriptures as our foundation, we want to walk with you, encouraging you to love God and follow Jesus, looking to Him for wisdom and help.

Women’s Bible Study
Women of all ages and seasons of life are invited to delve deeper into God’s Word through Bible studies that are offered throughout the year. Our goal as we meet around the Word of God is to know Him better and to develop Bible literacy among women who want to love God with all their hearts, with all their minds and with all their souls. Please join us on Thursday mornings at 10AM for coffee, fellowship and a great study in the eternal Living Word.
