Women's Ministry

Womens_ministryThe Women's Ministry of Crossway Church exists to strengthen the women of Crossway Church as we seek to glorify God in the work that he has given us to do, and to provide opportunities for us to strengthen others as we seek to glorify God by loving and serving His people.

We endeavor to accomplish this through a variety of venues for fellowship, encouragement and serving, while we celebrate being women who are called to reflect our joyful and magnificent Savior in all that we do.
