Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry at Calvary Chapel Villages has the opportunity to minister to every woman in the church who desires to participate. There are three venues of ministry:

  • Ministry through Trish Smith’s teaching, as well as to one another, in order to keep our hearts kindled … tending the inward-fire in each of us so that we stay ablaze through Christ Jesus!
  • Come alongside the CCV Care Team in assisting with women in the church who need a female’s touch and assistance in various ways
  • Opportunities to reach out into the communities surrounding us as the Holy Spirit directs us to meet the needs He intends for us.

 

 

Care Team Ministry

The care ministry is in place to assist those in our congregation that have almost any kind of need. Our goal is to be a blessing providing assistance through prayer, physical labor, fellowship, visitation, meals or benevolence.

Missons Update:  Diana Oxford – Give Them Back Ministries

Diana continues to provide counseling services at the Grace Clinic in Orlando where she has been working since recovering from cancer and awaiting return to the field.  Pray that she will have an adequate number of clients so she can pay down her medical bills.

Pray for continued physical strengthening prior to her return to Bosnia later this year where she will renew her ministry with women dealing with trauma.  Pray that she will regain the supporters who felt unable to continue during her illness.

Pray also for comfort for her as she still very much misses her brother who went home to be with the Lord last September.
