Women's Ministry

Grace Women’s Ministry exists to help women transform into fully devoted Christ-followers.  As we shape our ministry around the values of worship, mission and community, we hope women will find joy in making Christ ultimate, in joining the work of expanding His kingdom and in developing authentic relationships that reflect His love.

EVENTS

Women Connect

A casual evening giving women in all ages and stages of life the opportunity to connect with each other over a meal, hear a thought-provoking speaker address an issue all women face, and share their own thoughts with each other via round table discussion. No matter what the topic of the night may be, our hope is that women walk away with a stronger desire to be rightly connected to God, His word and others.
