Women's Ministry Welcome to Calvary Chapel Arroyo Grande Women's Ministry            

"But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift…for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;" - Ephesians 4: 7, 12, 13

It is the mission of Calvary Chapel Women’s Ministry to help women grow and mature in their relationship with Christ. This is accomplished first by my personal example of love and leadership. As I am equipped through my relationship with Christ and through the study of His Word, I will then be able to:
Strengthen other women in their faith
Instruct them in the Word of God and prepare them to serve others
Counsel according to biblical principles
Help them be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ

“My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you” - Galatians 4:19

The Mercy and Grace of Motherhood Susie Carr

Note from Sharon:
Pam's study on Seasons in our lives is very emotional, I cried and I laughed with her. What she shared reached right down into the very depth of my heart. I don't think we realize our lives can be compared to Seasons, Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. After listening to Pam, You will walk away with an entirely different view on your life's experiences and you will be rejoicing.
