Our desire is to provide an opportunity for all women to draw near to the heart of God and enjoy lasting friendships. Our River West community of women is a safe and caring place that encourages Bible study, prayer, discipleship, and service. We aim to walk through life together, growing in our faith, and applying the truth of the Gospel to our everyday lives.

The River is a weekly Bible study designed to help women know God and His Word more fully in order to live a life of authentic faith. Together we enjoy worship, live teaching, small group discussion, and prayer. In the process, women are able to make lasting friendships that are centered on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Sprouts is a community of young moms with children ages infant through kindergarten. In this season of early motherhood there are many unique needs, challenges, and joys. Sprouts focuses on helping young moms build friendships with each other while learning family/parenting tips from knowledgeable and inspiring speakers.
OLDER ACTIVE KINDRED SISTERS (OAKS)
OAKS is a group of women, 60 years and older, who seek to encourage, support, and pray for one another. With love, laughter, faith, and friendship we celebrate our season of life together and find God’s grace to meet the challenges inherent to our stage of life.
Throughout the year, River West Church provides events for women to connect with God and other women in our community. These events include conferences (like Ignite, Revive, and the IF:Gathering), Women’s Night of Worship, events for moms, and more.
WOMEN’S MINISTRY SERVICE TEAMS
Women’s ministry at River West would not be possible without the many women who serve behind the scenes. We have teams of women responsible for various elements of ministry, including hospitality, decor, food, childcare, care, and prayer.
