Women's Ministry ("Women of GRACE")

Thank you for your interest in Women’s Ministry!

We hope to have a chance to visit with you in person very soon. Our Women’s Ministry exists for reaching, teaching, encouraging, and empowering women to impact others with their God-given potential. We believe that as our lives become connected, we will grow stronger in our faith with our Lord Jesus Christ and each other.

Our Bible Studies, programs and events are planned with your needs in mind. We desire to encourage women in whatever season of life they are in. There is a place for you at East Hills. May the Lord’s plan for your life be accomplished during our journey together.



Women of G.R.A.C.E. (Growing, Rejoicing, Abiding, Caring, Equipping) 

“East Hills Women’s Ministry will actively reach out to women to draw them to the heart of God and life changing power of the cross through ministry, events and relationships” 

The Women of G.R.A.C.E. ministry is designed to enable all women of East Hills Community Church to experience the fellowship of sisterhood in Christ as we build our relationships with God.   It is our desire that our love for God and each other would be evident to all and our lives reflect our foundational verse, “Show wisdom by your good lives, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.  The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere” (James 3:13,17). 

At East Hills Community Church we have many opportunities for ladies to get connected to one another, and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We strive to build each other up as sisters, as well as to develop life-long friendships.  Our goal is to work together in His service, producing fruit, and becoming the Godly women that He created us to be. 

Through our many events and ministries, we are sure to have something that should interest you and build you up as well. We are excited to welcome you at anytime to our retreats, luncheons, LIFE Groups, or any other of our events. 

 

LIFE Groups 

As we believe that women are called to grow in the knowledge of God’s Word as the foundation for a fruitful life, we provide midweek Bible studies, known as LIFE Groups at East Hills Community Church. Women LIFE groups meet on Tuesday night at 7 pm and on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 am.  Chiildcare is provided for the Wednesday morning group.  For more information, click here.

These LIFE groups, along with our other events and programs, give us an opportunity to rejoice with each other through the struggles of life and enjoy fun and fellowship together.  Our goal is to provide many different growth and ministry opportunities for women to explore their unique calling and giftedness and to grow closer to God, while developing lifelong relationships with other women.  Come join us!

 

Women’s Retreat 

The Women’s Retreat, typically held in the spring of each year, is a time of refreshment and renewal for women.  Speakers, worship, small group discussions, and free time are the back-bone of the retreat. More importantly, it is an opportunity for women to connect with one another and to pray and encourage one another.  Retreats typically begin on a Friday evening and conclude on Sunday at noon.  The next Women’s Retreat will be scheduled for the spring of 2014. 

 

Virtuous Handcrafters 

This inspiring group meets every Tuesday morning at 9:30 am at the church to work on various crafts together.  Lasting friendships are developed as the women share their talents, gifts, and lives together.
