"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing." 1 Thess. 5:11
Eagle Christian Church Women's Ministries has been intentionally designed to provide an atmosphere where multiple generations of women can learn and grow together. A place where we can share laugh6ter, tears, fears, struggles, joys, concerns. A place where woen are encouraged to build lasting and Godly friendships with one another. A place where we pray together and allow God to work in and through each of us.
We will REACH out to women and invite them to join us. We will TEACH and EQUIP women to know God and His Word more fully and to love and serve others well as we all grow closer to the Lord. We will SEND women out to make an impact for Christ in our families, with our friends, and with the greater community around us.
We invite you to join us as we build relationships with each other, study together, learn to be bold for Christ as we share Him with others, and go out to impact the world around us.
If you have questions, needs, or want more information, contact me at 286-0879 or 514-9296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. or check the church website under Women for more information.
Excited as we boldly serve Him together, Glennis Thomas, Director of Women's Ministries
