Women are vital to the ministries of the church. The early church was radical in that it encouraged women to learn about theology and Jesus and deemed them as equal image-bearers of God, with distinct roles.
At Island Christian Church, we want women to embrace their role in the church, grow in their knowledge of the Bible and their love for Jesus, and connect and support each other. We have opportunities uniquely focused on women and their needs so that you can find a place to plug in and grow in your faith!
“A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

'PAUL'S JOY FORMULA' - A STUDY OF THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS
We are excited to be doing a study by Doreen Lee - one of our own Island Christian women!
Life is full of choices, and the decisions we make shape our destiny. Join us in the Book of Philippians as we discover the Apostle Paul’s words of wisdom, learned through the years of his challenging walk of faith, and explore how the choices he made brought him contentment in every situation. Be blessed as we gain insight into Paul's joy formula, and how it affects our lives today.
