Women are vital to a healthy church. In the Bible, it was the women who stuck by Jesus as he died on the cross. It was the women who discovered that Jesus rose from the dead and told the disciples. And it was the women who faithfully served in the early church in partnership with the apostles and elders. The early church was radical in that it encouraged women to learn about theology and Jesus, encouraged them to serve and help build the church, and deemed women as equal image bearers of God, with distinct roles. Crossway Women’s Ministries is focused on helping women grow more deeply in their love of Jesus, grow in their knowledge of the Bible, and get connected with one another in community with the ultimate goal of creating disciples of Jesus who make other disciples. Typical opportunities for women include Bible studies, mom’s get-togethers, book clubs, special events and conferences, and more. Calvary Women’s Ministries are open to all women of any age and stage of life. If you are interested in learning more about Women’s Ministries or volunteering email priscilla@crosswaycr.org.
