Outstanding FALL women’s ministry ideas

Fall women’s ministry ideas – I’ve got you covered! As autumn’s crisp air and vibrant colors arrive, so does the opportunity to infuse new life into your fall women’s ministry ideas. The fall season offers a canvas of possibilities to connect, inspire, and grow together. It seems to me fall’s crisp air and warm colors find a perfect match in a cozy café or tearoom.

Picture this: surrounded by soft lighting, comfortable seating, and freshly brewed coffee or spiced tea aroma. It’s an intimate setting that encourages meaningful conversations and connections.

Whether you’re planning a casual coffee morning, a book club discussion, or a themed party, the ambiance of a café or tearoom complements the season’s spirit of togetherness and reflection.

As you sip your warm, spiced drinks and enjoy delicious treats, the environment embraces you like a warm, comforting hug.

It’s not hard for me to come up with activities in autumn you can do with your women’s ministry group! I love the fall and women’s ministry, so here it goes.

A Harvest Tea:

Go on and embrace the cozy charm of fall with a harvest-themed tea gathering. Share warm cups of tea, cider, or other delightful treats in the beautiful sparkle of fall. I must admit fall is my favorite season. I love the colors (I live in Missouri) and the bite in the air.

Historic Inn or Manor

Step into the pages of a storybook by hosting your fall party at a historic inn or manor.

These charming venues exude timeless elegance with their architecture, fireplaces, and enchanting interiors. Imagine gathering with your friends in a room adorned with vintage decor, the crackling of a fireplace creating a cozy backdrop.

It’s a setting that lends itself to themed parties, whether a vintage masquerade ball or an evening of classical music and poetry.

The fall foliage surrounding the inn or manor completes the picture, offering breathtaking views and the opportunity for leisurely walks in nature.

This venue choice not only provides a touch of luxury but also transports you to a bygone era, where connections are nurtured in an atmosphere of grace and charm.

Fall Foliage Adventures

As the leaves transform into a kaleidoscope of rich hues, embarking on a fall foliage adventure becomes a must-do activity.

Head to a nearby park, nature reserve, or forested area to witness the breathtaking transformation of the landscape.

Whether it’s a leisurely hike, a bike ride along a scenic trail, or a simple stroll through the woods, the vibrant colors and crisp air create an invigorating experience.

Don’t forget to bring along a cozy sweater and a thermos of hot apple cider to savor the true essence of autumn.

Pumpkin Patch Excursion

Visiting a pumpkin patch is a quintessential fall activity brimming with charm and fun, don’t you think?

Wander through rows of pumpkins in various sizes, searching for the perfect one to carve into a grinning jack-o’-lantern or to adorn your doorstep.

Many pumpkin patches offer additional attractions like corn mazes, hayrides, and petting zoos, making it an ideal outing for families and friends alike.

The vibrant oranges and earthy browns of the pumpkins, combined with the laughter of children and the scent of hay, create a festive atmosphere that embodies the spirit of the season. The Travel Channel lists pumpkin patches from all over the country.

Harvest Festivals and Farmer’s Markets

Fall is synonymous with harvest, and celebrating this bounty is integral to the season.

Attending a local harvest festival or visiting a farmer’s market offers a delightful blend of activities.

Enjoy picking apples straight from the orchard, indulge in freshly baked pies, and explore stalls showcasing an array of artisanal goods, crafts, and seasonal produce.

From pumpkin-spiced treats to handmade crafts, these events capture the essence of autumn’s coziness and the joy of connecting with local communities.

Engaging with local farmers and artisans not only supports small businesses but also deepens your connection to the season’s authentic pleasures. This USDA features farmer markets around the country. Check them out!

Renewal Retreat

Invite women to a retreat where they can experience spiritual renewal amid nature’s changing canvas. Really leverage the change of seasons to inspire change within the person. Through walks, meditative sessions, and heartfelt discussions, encourage them to reflect on the season’s parallels with personal growth.

One of my BEST fall women’s
ministry ideas – a Workshop!

Gratitude Workshop

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, host a workshop that guides women in cultivating gratitude. Explore the biblical roots of thankfulness and engage in creative exercises that foster appreciation for God’s abundant gifts.

Here is a sample activity:

Gratitude Garland: Celebrating Blessings Together

Engaging in a gratitude activity is a wonderful way to foster a spirit of thankfulness and create meaningful connections. One such activity that can be especially delightful is creating a Gratitude Garland.

Materials Needed:

  • Strips of colored paper or cardstock
  • Markers, pens, or pencils
  • String or ribbon
  • Clothespins or mini clips
  • Decorative elements (stickers, fall-themed embellishments, etc.)


  1. Prepare the Strips: Cut the colored paper or cardstock into strips. Each strip will represent a blessing or thing to be grateful for.

  2. Write Gratitude: Invite each participant to write down something they are thankful for on a strip. Encourage creativity and depth, whether it’s a specific person, a cherished memory, a personal quality, or a simple joy.

  3. Decorate: If desired, participants can decorate their strips with markers, stickers, or other embellishments that reflect the fall season.

  4. Assemble the Garland: Once everyone has written their gratitudes and decorated their strips, gather them together. String the strips onto a ribbon or string, using clothespins or mini clips to secure them in place.

  5. Share and Reflect: As you create the Gratitude Garland, take turns sharing your gratitude with the group. Share the significance of each one and how it has impacted your life.

  6. Display and Enjoy: Hang the completed Gratitude Garland in a prominent place where everyone can see it. This can be in your home, church, or any space where it will serve as a visual reminder of the blessings in your lives.

The Gratitude Garland activity encourages participants to express their thankfulness and creates a beautiful collective reminder of the abundance in their lives. It’s a heartwarming way to come together, reflect on the goodness around us, and cultivate a heart of gratitude that extends beyond the activity itself.

Things womens ministries can do in the fall months

A Bible Study Idea – Always a good one of my fall women’s ministry ideas.

Fall Bible Study Series

Launch a fall-themed Bible study series that delves into Scriptures reflecting on seasons, change, and God’s unchanging love. Explore lessons from the changing leaves and emphasize how faith can anchor us through transitions.

Again, capitalize on the concept of “change” or “transformation” as the weather does in various parts of the country. Here are some scriptures you can use:

  1. Romans 12:2 (NIV): “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
  2. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (ESV): “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”
  3. Ephesians 4:22-24 (NIV): “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”
  4. Colossians 3:9-10 (NIV): “Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.”
  5. Galatians 2:20 (ESV): “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Pumpkin Carving Night:

Create a lighthearted atmosphere with a pumpkin carving night, where women can tap into their creativity and craft pumpkins that symbolize God’s transformative power in their lives. As you know, I “ain’t” about Halloween. It’s about time we take this season back for Jesus!

Hike and Devotion

Combine physical activity with spiritual nourishment by organizing a group hike. Along the trail, share devotions focused on the beauty of creation and how God uses changing life seasons to mold us. As I write this, I am going through a very hard life season as my mother has Alzheimer’s and is deteriorating. I would really love to participate in a nature walk with some ladies and talk about how God uses hard seasons in our lives.

What are some fall women's ministry ideas?

Add a Fall Festival of Giving to your fall women’s ministry ideas.

Channel the season’s generosity by hosting a fall festival focused on giving back. Partner with local charities and encourage women to contribute to causes that align with the ministry’s values.

You can have a women’s clothing giveaway and donate the clothes to a local women’s shelter.

Or how about having a ladies’ clothing swap?

Borrow racks from a women’s shelter and have booths set up in your church’s fellowship area.

Women can “shop” by taking a clothing item from another women’s rack.

This is a good way to clean out your closet, although you’re not really cleaning it out, because you’ll get some cute other things from your Christian sisters. hehe

The video below will make you go, “ahhhhhhh I love Fall.” 🙂

Worship Under the Stars

I absolutely LOVE this idea. What if you get a projector and have an evening moving night with the ladies? Fall is the perfect time for a bonfire and some relaxing time under a beautiful night sky.

You can project on someone’s garage or house.

Frankly, I am not a big fan of hosting this sort of event in public – people are crazy, and it may create a safety issue. Find someone’s house with a big backyard instead.

Either way, it would be so nice to create a serene atmosphere for worship by holding an outdoor gathering beneath the starlit sky. You could also invite local musicians and engage in soul-stirring worship, celebrating the Creator of both seasons and stars. Hallelujah!

Let your Christian women’s ministry bloom this fall with purpose, faith, and connection. These events are growth opportunities and avenues for creating cherished memories and fostering sisterhood that will leave a lasting impact. I am all about memories and relationships when it comes to women’s ministry.

As the leaves change, may hearts be transformed and spirits lifted in the embrace of a loving community united in Christ’s grace.
