Women’s Ministry - God’s Girls

The “heart” of our women’s ministry is to help women create their own missions vision by enabling them to:

  • Recognize their status in Christ (Galatians 4:7, Ephesians 1:3-14)
  • Find an entry point to fulfill Christ’s purpose in their lives (Jeremiah 29:11-13, Romans 8:28)
  • Reflect the highest ideals of Christian living (Ephesians 4:1, 1 Thessalonians 2:8)
  • See their lives as set apart for the gospel (Galatians 1:15-16a, 2 Timothy 1:6-14)
  • Affirm God’s call both individually and corporately (1 Peter 2:9)
  • Reach beyond themselves to a global vision (Acts 1:8, 2:17)
  • Commit to a rewarding missions lifestyle (Colossians 3:12-17, Philemon 6)

 

WE BELIEVE IN MISSIONAL LIVING

Pray for missions. Engage in mission action and witnessing. Learn about missions. Support missions. Develop spiritually toward a mission’s lifestyle. Participate in the work of the church and denomination.

We offer a variety of choices for involvement which includes (but is not limited to) various types of Bible study groups, prayer groups, missionary focus groups, and mission action groups. We believe that promoting a biblical worldview for all ages will compel believers to be compassionate and active in their faith. In an effort to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God we invite females between the ages of 13 and 113 to attend any function we host, even if she’s not a member of our church!

This radical involvement happens as we are led to:

  • Pray, linking us with God and His mission in our neighborhoods, our nations, and around the world. It is our recognition that we must have God’s help to do missions.
  • Engage in missions personally through ministry and witnessing in redemptive, loving service for people of special need or circumstance in the name and Spirit of Christ; sharing the Gospel with them and giving them an opportunity to confess Jesus as Savior and Lord.
  • Learn about not only current missions, but also the biblical basis and history of missions which helps us to become concerned about people who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior. As we learn of the needs and work being done to share Christ with the lost, we are able to pray with greater understanding.
  • Support missions in the form of both a noun and a verb. It includes giving financially to missions, providing personal ministries for missionaries and their families, creating an environment for people to hear and respond to God’s call to mission service and nurturing individuals who respond to God’s call to mission service.
  • Develop spiritually toward a mission’s lifestyle as a lifelong process. By nurturing lifestyles that reflect commitment and obedience to the Great Commission through intentional opportunities for spiritual growth like Bible study, prayer, stewardship of all resources and investment of time and talents in the mission of God.
  • Participate in the work of the church and denomination: developing an awareness of the ongoing need for an environment where people can see “the big picture” and respond to God’s call.
