Women's Ministry

As women, we experience many different transitions during our lifetime including singleness, marriage, motherhood, working with or without children at home, empty-nesting, and many more.  Each of these seasons of life brings different desires, needs, and growing dependence on God.  The Women’s Ministry at East Hills and The Grove desires to see you connect with God and flourish in a healthy, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.  We want to help you find relationships with other women who can encourage and support you through this changing life journey, so that together, we can live in community and grow in faith.

The Women’s Ministry Team provides direction for this valuable ministry at our church.  Women of different ages and life stages comprise this team and oversee the multiple facets of the ministry.
