Our family spent most of the last year in search of community at the church we were attending.
As we began to share our difficulties in finding community, we heard from many others were struggling as well.
Women’s ministry team meeting agendas.
For some of us they are about as appealing as a root canal.
What should we include?
How long should we meet?
Lately I find myself more easily distracted than ever before.
I start one project and then remember something else and my attention is diverted.
Your sign-ups are lagging.
Last week only 2 women attended.
The retreat’s a month out, but you’re less than half full.
Looking for some fresh inspiration for your fall women’s minsitry events?
I’ve gathered some great ideas from around the internet covering everything from food to service to discipleship to decor ideas.
If your women’s ministry historically attracts older women, persuading younger women to attend can be a real challenge.
Should your women’s ministry take a summer sabbatical?
A few months off won’t hurt, right? It will give your team a chance to recharge before hitting the ground running in the fall.
Reading is my escape. It’s also my favorite form or procrastination.
Is your team struggling to get women to show up at your women’s ministry events and activities?
If that is the case, you are not alone!
How do you strike the balance of making sure every team member has a say and empowering your team members to make decisions?
I’ve sat on a team where there were no clear roles or responsibilities.
The number one question I receive is “How do we get the younger (or in some cases older) women in our church to participate?”
Women’s ministry teams everywhere struggle with how to engage multiple generations.
Perhaps the idea of tackling taboo topics is one that your women’s ministry team steers clear of.
You’re afraid of saying the wrong thing.
Over the last 10+ years I’ve had the opportunity to serve on three women’s ministry teams in three different churches.
Everywhere I’ve served and even in the places where I haven’t, I’ve seen this women’s ministry mistake committed over and over again. And I’m not just throwing stones, I’m 100% guilty of committing it myself.
I’m curious, how would you describe the way your women’s ministry team operates?
I’m guessing the word “effective” may not be the first word that comes to mind…
Last week we invited the women of our church to attend an event off-campus at another church.
Why you might ask?
I love discovering new women’s ministry resources!
Especially those that challenge me to think differently and cause me to question some of the choices our women’s ministry team has made.
