WOMEN IN CHURCH (W.I.C.)
Women's Ministry

Our Women's Ministry is the ministry of and to women of Grace Coastal Church. The women grow and serve our Lord and Christ together, sharing life's experiences and relying on God's grace.
 
If you are a woman, you are a part of our women's ministry! We strive to minister to woman through social outreach.

Guiding Verse: 1 Peter 4:10 
 "God's gifts of grace come in many forms. Each of us received a gift in order to serve others. You should use it faithfully."
Ministries                                                       

Women in the Church take advantage of many ways to serve together in and out of the church including: 

Hospitality
Please check our bulletin board, the Sunday church bulletins, and your email for announcements of baby and bridal showers throughout the year. Meals are also provided for families after the arrival of a new child as well as families dealing with illness and loss of loved ones. These are wonderful opportunities for us to show our love and support for our sisters in Christ who are experiencing great change in their lives.

Family Promise 
WIC provides service in various ways to Family Promise. These are relatively simple tasks, and a wonderful way for us to reach out and to serve others. We only host families four times a year for one week at a time. Learn more by visiting our Family Promise page.

Radiance Women's Center
The Radiance Women's Center comes along expectant mothers seeking direction and help. Support for the center is gifted through prayer, nursing, fundraising, counseling, and financial support. Learn more by visiting our Radiance Women's Center page.

Odd Gloves
Members without or who have lost their spouse are invited to a monthly lunch. This unique support group not only provides fellowship but also a time to share their lives and comfort with each other. Learn more by visiting our Odd Gloves page.

Prayer Shawl and Cross Stitch
Prayer shawls are lovingly made by for those in need and baby blankets are given to families welcoming little ones. Monthly prayer meetings are held among those interested. Cross stitch blessings are also given to every new baby welcomed to the church. 
Fellowship and Events                                                  

WIC provides numerous opportunities to fellowship, learn, and fun times to enjoy one another. Those opportunities include:

Yearly Retreat 
Every year our women leave their responsibilities behind and venture out into the region to laugh till they drop, enjoy God’s Word together, and share their lives with one another.  
 
Women's Minsitry Bible Studies
During this time, women are joined together through prayer, study and sharing stories. Many of the women continue their new friendships by going to lunch together after the study.

Girls Night Out
Girls Night Out is a ministry designed to support and encourage women going through various joys and struggles in today’s world. Participants meet once a month and share refreshments, stories, laughter, advice, and most importantly, prayer needs. The group faithfully joins together both corporately during the meeting and individually in the weeks that follow bringing each other’s prayer needs before the One who is the answer to them all. Childcare is provided by volunteers from our congregation giving them their attention and love. Currently, the group gathers for “Girls’ Night Out” activities every third Thursday of the month. 

Social Events
From time to time WIC will sponsor various fun nights. One can expect anything from a Game Night to a rousing Country Line Dancing and anything in between. Women also look forward to annual events such as our Ladies Luncheon. These times are a great time for women of all ages to gather and grow together as one.
