Women

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”  1 Thessalonians 5:11

Ministry to women at Eagle Christian Church is all about building bridges between the generations and drawing each woman closer to a life-giving relationship with the Lord of Creation and His greatest gift to us, Jesus Christ. Each part of Women’s Ministry is designed to facilitate this intergenerational sharing and relationship building.

We Reach out to share our lives and stories with others, to laugh and encourage each other, and to just take time to breathe in a non threatening, low key environment lovingly created by women for women.

During our TEACH and EQUIP times, women share in the study and application of God’s Word. We will not only study what God’s Word says, but we diligently seek to answer the question we all ask: “How does this apply in my daily life?” As we grow in our faith, we are being equipped to share the Good News with others.

Ultimately, what we have learned and been equipped to do will result in SENDing women out to SERVE and put God’s Word into action. No matter our age, each of us has gifts and strengths with which to live out the Good News with others.

If you have questions, needs, or want more information about our purpose and offerings, contact me at 209-286-0879 or 208-514-9296 or email glennist@eaglechristianchurch.com.
