Welcome to Women’s Ministry
We believe women are designed by God to meet the needs of other women. Our purpose here at Lincoln Hills Community Church is to encourage women to develop and maintain a vital relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, Bible study, outreach activities, and service.
Various events are offered throughout the year to allow women to become better acquainted, meet new people, and fellowship. These events for 2019 include our Spring Event, Pies and Praises on April 13, a Summer Salad Potluck Luncheon on July 27, a Holiday Craft Fair* on November 1-2, and a Christmas Tea on December 14. Please save the dates for these incredible events.
*Holiday Craft Faire and Bake Sale, Crafters from Northern California have beautiful handmade, unique holiday and gift items. The famous bake sale proceeds go to Women’s Ministry Charities.
Opportunities for Service
