A major goal of the women's ministry, is to connect women. In our gatherings we want to be a group that is safe and attractive to other women who are also looking to connect, share, grow, and learn.
We want to provide a ministry that enables people to feel safe with each other. Therefore, as each person desires, they can share with each other, learn from each other, and pray for each other, all within the context of digging into the Scripture or Scriptural ideas together.
It is in this context that we work to bring together our women, their friends, and others who want to come. That way we can build a caring fellowship around God's word.
What a GREAT evening our Women Enjoyed!
December 12th - Christmas Family Traditions - turned out to be a full, fun, and meaningful evening for our women. It was the culimnation of a good deal of work and planning, and it was all worth it.
The theme: Psalm 100:5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Three Moms and their children shared their special Christmas traditions.There was plenty of laughter and obvious joy yet also the reality of heartache expressed which is felt by so many at this time of year. Long hugs and tears between some of the Secret Sisters as they were revealed after a month of secretly encouraging each other. Finally the ladies who participated found out who their "secret Santas" were. What a fun way to end the month long now-tradition of the secret sister gifts and card sharing experience.
Sherdonna Denholm, a local professional musician and song writer not only sang but gave each person one of her cd's! How generous and special is that!!! Click here for a link to one of her songs
The food, by the way, was awesome. Vivianos came through for us in a big way.
See some of the pics below. From empty table to a happy ending.
Stay tuned - plans for mid-winter will be announced here and in the newsletter.
The Christmas theme set-up as the ladies came in.
