A group of women dedicated to serving other women at River West. This team is divided into smaller teams that specialize in particular areas, such as event decor or meal preparation. Available teams include:

  • Care Team | The Care Team prepares meals, visits those in need, and looks for ways to serve others in our community.
  • Childcare Team | The Childcare Team is a vital component of women’s ministry and a perfect way to connect with new friends while caring for kids and, as a result, blessing their moms.
  • Decor Team | The Decor Team is creative and intentional in designing and preparing the spaces where women gather.
  • Food + Coffee Team | The Food + Coffee Team prepares to welcome and nourish (and caffeinate!) women as we gather. After all, food is an avenue for connection that feeds the soul and the body!

  • Prayer Team | The Prayer Team provides prayer for women and our church, community, and world.
