Women's Ministry

Mission

CONNECT all women. This doesn’t mean that we are all the same. Nor should we be! God didn’t create us to be cookie cutter Christian women. He created us in His image, and we each have different gifts that are of so much value to His Kingdom!

Help each other GROW in Christ.  This isn’t a sprint, this is a marathon. We are here to encourage and lean on one another, be honest about our struggles and grow in our faith

1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV & Hebrews 10:23-25 ESV

To GO and be part of the Great Commission. We shouldn’t be content discipling ourselves. As we learn and grow, we need to take the Good News of Jesus to the world around us!

Matthew 28:16-20 ESV

LOVE in Christ’s Name. When we seek love, earthly love can fail us. When we love imperfect broken people, the love is also imperfect and broken. But when we seek and find love with the creator of the universe, then we find a perfect selfless love that is eternal. The God that created us, is also that God that saved us from all of our sin and pain. The Cross equals love. Love that we don’t deserve but that He freely gives. The more we realize God’s love for us, the more we can give that love away.

John 3:16 ESV

We meet for weekly online study and prayer on Wednesday nights at 6pm. We serve the community with our annual Gingerbread Extravaganza Benefiting the Advocacy Center for the Children of El Paso, collecting needed items for the Center for Sexual and Family Violence and by volunteering at the Mustard Seed Café.
