Women's Ministry Contact
Women's Ministry at Joy desires that all women experience life to the fullest as believers in Jesus Christ. We offer a wide variety of opportunities to encourage women in their spiritual growth and help them connect with others. It is our goal that every woman be: embraced by God's grace, empowered by His Spirit, established in His Word and engaged in serving others.
