About Hearts of Joy

The Hearts of Joy Women’s Ministry at Zarephath Christian Church is an inclusive, loving group of women of all ages who are looking for Christ-centered friendships and more of Jesus! This ministry encourages and equips women to find their unique identity in the Lord through Worship, the Word and personal testimonies displaying the power of God in transformed lives.

In this present day and culture where there are beautiful yet, at times, challenging issues of life that are faced by all women, it is evident that God is calling His Daughters to stand on His Word and say “The JOY of the Lord is your strength.”  What an excellent reminder that only an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ will emit a fragrance by which we can live our lives through His strength with hearts of JOY!

We look forward to meeting you at one of our many opportunities to connect to women here at ZCC and grow in your walk with Christ. We are praying for you!  Hope to see you soon!
