Welcome to Eagle Christian Church Women's Ministries. Women need encouragement and opportunities to develop healthy intergenerational friendships, go deeper into God's word and grow spiritually, and find places and ways to serve in the church and the wider community.
Eagle Christian Church Women's Ministries is purposefully designed to provide this encouragement and these opportunities. We REACH out through events. We TEACH and EQUIP through studies, retreats, mentoring, and encouraging each other in our walk with Christ. We send women out to SERVE in a variety of ways in the church and the world. Following the admonitions of Titus 2 for women, we focus on the things God desires for His daughters to exemplify in our lives.
We invite you to join us as our lives are enriched and we are drawn closer to Christ and to each other. If you have questions, needs, or want more information about our purpose and offerings, contact me at 286-0879 or 514-9296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Serving Him, Glennis Thomas, Director of Women's Ministries
Events provide opportunities for women to enjoy being with women of multiple generations. It is a great time to invite friends and neighbors and help them get acquainted with ECC. There will be laughter, fun, and Biblical encouragement.
SPRING BRUNCH - April 22,2017 - Bring your friends and neighbors as we welcome spring with a time of fun, food, fellowship. Meet some new friends, enjoy a delicious brunch, and be inspired as multiple generations of women spend time together, connecting and enjoying each other's company. The cost is low, the rewards are high. What better way to introduce your friends to ECC. As one guest in 2015 said, "It was so great to see all generations having fun together."
An Evening of Christmas for the Ladies - December 4, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. Before the rush of the season becomes overwhelming, spend a special evening of music, the spoken word, fellowship, and preparing our hearts for Christmas. Some wonderful desserts will be part of the evening. A great oppoertunity to just enjoy and be encouraged . Bring your friends and daughters and introduce them to ECC. (More details to come.)
TEACH AND EQUIP OPPORTUNITIES: (Eagle Campus)
As women we need to know God's unchanging Word and how to apply it in our lives. Small group time is part of teaching and equipping activities and provides women time to build relationships with eah other and to encourage each other to put into practice the life lessons learned from scripture.
Our teaching and equipping programs are designed around the basic areas of women's lives taken from Titus 2:3-5. Relationship to God and Christ. (This is our personal relationship with a personal Savior. Our spiritual growth and the things that encourage that growth form the core of what is presented.) Relationship to spouse. (Every women, regardless of marital status needs to be supportive of and understand God's purpose for marriage. This includes how single women can be used by God to support not only the ideals of marriage, but celebrate their relationsip to the Savior as the one who will always be with us.) Relationship to children. (Not only do we parent our own children, but we can be nurturers of children in general. How that looks, why God places us in families, the role of grandparents - all are important as we guide future generations to the Lord of Lords.) Relationship to others. (The importance of healthy female friendships, mentoring others, workplace relationships, relationship swith extended family, etc. all are important areas of women's lives.)
Refresh - March 4, 2017. If you need a day of renewal and fellowship after the winter, Refresh is designed to do that. Sometimes we just need to take a day and be refreshed in our relationship to God. Lunch will be served and the speakers and small group time will be encouraging and helpful. (More details to come later.)

SERVE OPPORTUNITIES: (Eagle Campus)
Our love for Christ naturally overflows as we serve Him by serving others. The important thing is to find a place to serve and plug in. Service is as indiviudal as each of us. The obvious ones are prayer warriors, children and youth, visiting the elderly and those struggling, volunteering with service organizations in the community, being sensitive to those around us, actively looking for ways to display Christ through our actions.
