We believe that an effective women’s ministry includes loving, redeeming, and disciplining each other.
In order to be one with the Lord, we know that we need to be one with one another. We do that by learning about each other, helping each other, and taking joy in each other. Putting others first is a result of putting God first.
We realize that as we shepherd women, we impact far more than just their lives alone. We have the ability to impact their marriages, their families, and their neighborhoods. Ultimately, we can impact an entire culture.
Our Women’s Ministry touches lives in a number of ways.
Believers seeking to grow in Christ are welcome to join a women’s Bible study group. These groups are small and provide a comfortable and safe environment in which participants can get to know others and can find out more about how God’s Word applies to their lives. One-on-one mentoring relationships are also an important discipleship ministry.
Somehow, when women get together, relational events get organized! Our women’s ministry takes responsibility for seeing that retreats, camp-outs, potlucks, and holidays get planned and friendships are made and deepened.
Right in there with fellowship events, developing connections through communication is a natural part of women’s ministry. We keep in touch with each other through phone calls, e-mail, and cards of encouragement. When someone is sick or in need, our women’s ministry organizes meals, rides, or visits. Bridal and baby showers and other celebrations of the church are also hosted by women’s ministry.
In our efforts to go deep relationally with one another, we are learning to share our knowledge and our possessions with one another. Women’s Ministry hosts the Barter Board, a place where individuals may post needs that they have. Those who have items they would like to make available to others may also post them on this board. In addition, each Sunday a large basket is available for those who have food items they would like to share to make them available for the use of others. We also host periodic clothing swap days to enable those who have quality items they are no longer using to share them with others in need.
