Women

 

Welcome to Eagle Christian Church Women's Ministries. We invite you to join us on our journey to the heart of God. Our God has uniquely designed women to need a relationship with Him AND healthy, encouraging, intergenerational relationships with other women as we travel through life. The journey will have its challenges and joys, but the challenges will be divided and the joys multiplied because we make the journey together.

On our journey, we will REACH and build friendships with women of all ages and all stages of life. We will encourage and be encouraged as we interact with multiple generations of women. We will TEACH and EQUIP women to know, to share, and to live out God's perfect design for womanhood. We will study together from God's unchanging Word and draw closer to Him. We will become more confident to share God's plan for us with other women. Ultimately, we will rejoice with opportunities to SERVE our God and others we meet on our journey to God's heart.

Questions about any group or event, ideas, need someone to just visit with about life, etc., contact Glennis at 286-0879 or 514-9296 or email glennist@eaglechristianchurch.com.

Excited for the journey to His heart,

[ Glennis Thomas ]

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.

Loving Touch Ministries actually pulls togther 3 separate types of ministries designed to offer encouragement, and meet specific needs in times of trial or blessing. Requests are submitted to the team leaders who identify the loving touch that is needed.

1. Meals Ministry - an opportunity to serve in a very practical way when needs arise. If you would like to help or need help in this area, contact the church office 286-0879 or Danielle Bowman at 401-5421.

2. Quilting Ministry - This service ministry makes quilts for those in life altering circumstances in need of comfot, hope, faith, and / or blessings. This group also includes those who enjoy knitting or crocheting baby afghans and hats, or other small items.  One group meets Monday morning at 9:30 and one meets Monday evening at 6:00. Both groups meet at the church building. Contact Summer Coates 412-0667 with requests.

3. Card Ministry - This service ministry sends cards as needed to encourage others dealing with life altering events / blessings. Contact Glennis at 286-0879. 

Women in Prayer - Women committed to praying regularly for the various needs of women's ministries, individuals, ECC staff, etc. This group undergirds Women's Ministries, is committed to confidentiality, and has a real heart for taking the needs of others to the throne of God in prayer. Led by Shannon Crites.

New service opportunities are being developed and many other opportunities already exist to serve in the church. Call Glennis for more information.
