The Ministries of Women

There! Try that title on for size, The Ministries of Women.  I decided if I put Women’s Ministries you may not be interested in reading this post.  You probably don’t just love women’s ministries like I do or perhaps you do.

Do you know that women make up at least 70% of the Seventh Day Adventist Church?  Yikes, we are  becoming  a majority.  Not only that, WE control many of  “the purse strings”, so THEY say. Interesting don’t you think?

Women’s Ministries is really not about the purse strings, the majority or even about ordination.  Women’s ministries is about unselfishly ministering to others.  Ministering to the single mother, children and women in the church and in the community. 

You may be thinking how can we minister, what can we do?  Start with providing  SOMETHING for women.  It can be a small group Bible study, a party with a purpose, like Women in Touch, a book club, a mom’s support group, the list is endless.  The important thing it to do something for women.

I hope you have women’s ministries in your church, if you don’t you are missing out.  If you would like to get something started I would love to help you.  Just leave a comment on this blog and I will contact you.  If you don’t want to tackle something like Women In Touch, perhaps a new mom’s ministry or burden bears would be something you would like.  We have so many resources available to help you get a ministry started in your church.

The truth is, when you are ministering to someone else you are actually ministering to your self and to Jesus most of all.  You will enjoy doing ministry for others whether it is a party with a purpose or taking a gift to a new mom and inviting her to bring her baby to Sabbath School.  We were created for a purpose and I believe serving others is one of our purposes on this earth.
