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 ]

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.
