Women on Mission allows women, regardless of age, to be involved in missions discipleship. Women on Mission allows members to reach out to their community to lead others to Christ, be encouraged to pray and give to missions, learn about missions so they can be more effective in mission causes and personally grow in the missions lifestyle. Currently there is one Women on Mission group. The "Mission Action" group meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 PM in the family room of the Christian Life Center. The focus of this group is doing a different mission action/ministry project each month. In addition, the group has an emphasis on praying for missionaries and others in need of prayer. The meeting closes with light refreshments and fellowship.
Leaders are: Teresa Morrow, Diane Rogers
