Encouraging, Empowering & Equipping Women
The purpose of Women’s Ministry at Grace is to encourage, empower and equip the women of Grace Community Church, as we walk together with Christ. We desire to connect women and provide support to each other as we grow in our faith and service to the Lord. We seek to create meaningful fellowship and discipleship opportunities that deepen our relationship with Jesus and give glory to God in our church, in the community, and around the world.
Colossians 2:2-3 “My goal is that their hearts, having been knit together in love, may be encouraged and that they may have all the riches that the assurance brings in their understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are the hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
The mission of Women’s Ministry at Grace is to provide a variety of programs to nurture women and promote growth through learning opportunities, inspirational bible studies, fellowship connections, and community outreach, all encouraging, empowering, and equipping the women of Grace Community Church.
The vision of Women’s Ministry at Grace is that, as an integral part of the body, the women of Grace Community Church desire to support the church’s vision, grow in our faith, expand participation and connection within our congregation, and share the Gospel with others.
