Women's Ministries exist to help the women of EFree to become passionate for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ.
This God-initiated passion is created and spread by...
–Giving women encouragement and opportunity to develop a growing intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in increasing conformity to Him and is the only source of lasting joy. (Psalm 16:11)
–Equipping women with the Word of God so that they may fully embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ and their God-given design as helper and life-giver, and so bring blessing (joy) to themselves, their families, their church, their friendships, their workplaces, their communities and the world. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
–Drawing women together for fellowship, for mutual encouragement and building up, for accountability, for sharing life experiences, and for outreach to those who do not know Christ. (Hebrews 3:12-15)
–Building up the body of Christ in this place by providing support to the male leadership of the church, to other ministries of the church, and to members of the church family. (Ephesians 4:15-16)
Ministries by and for women of our church include:
Bible Studies. We offer at least two through the school year, one daytime study and one evening study. These run from September through May.
Discipleship Groups. These are smaller groups that generally meet weekly and are where we seek to attend to each other's souls with the truth in love. Discipleship Groups are an important piece of our ministry to and through women. To learn more, view the list of highlighted groups on the above page, or log in to The City and explore the complete list under "Groups."
Brunches. Once a quarter we gather on a Saturday morning for a delicious brunch, fellowship and an encouraging message.
Out and About. Occasional, varied events invite women to join with other women to watch a movie, enjoy lunch together, go shopping, etc. These offer a very informal opportunity to get to know other women in our church, as well as to welcome other friends.
Retreats. These are opportunities to come together as women over a weekend to relax, to be refreshed in worship and study of God's Word, and to grow in love for Christ and for one another.
