For many of us, large group events will be few and far between on our women’s ministry calendar for some time.
Today I’ve invited Amy Ford to share a special guest post. As we strive to love and serve all of the women in our churches and communities, there are groups of women that we may struggle to reach. Amy offers ideas and resources for the church to care for women with unplanned pregnancies. I pray you and your team will find them valuable. – Cyndee
It’s incredible how quickly things can change in a day or a week…
Last week I sat around a table at church discussing the Bibles study lesson with my Bible study group. This week there will be no meeting or discussion, and I’ll watch a video on my laptop our teachers will be recording for us.
Taking the time to think through and plan the launch of your next Bible study session will bless both your team and your participants.
I have a soft spot for moms and mommy groups.
In the summer many women’s ministry teams press pause on deeper Bible studies and offer summer book clubs in addition to or instead of weekly Bible study.
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.
Most of us probably realize the majority of the women we serve struggle to read the Bible on a regular basis.
And if we’re being real, we’d admit that many of us struggle to read the Bible on a regular basis too.
As a women’s ministry leader, you’ll have many opportunities to divide your women into groups.
Whether it’s for Bible study or a women’s ministry event, relationships blossom when women are seated in circles and not rows.
If you’ve been doing Bible study for any length of time, you’ve watched your women’s Bible study attendance dwindle as each week passes.
The group starts of strong and healthy, but one by one the group members start to drop off like flies…
Perhaps you’ve noticed a drop-off in the attendance of your women’s ministry events.
Maybe the Bible studies that once drew women in abundance are all but limping along.
Last week while running errands I caught the last 10 minutes of part 1 of this 2-part interview of Lee and Leslie Strobel on Focus on the Family titled Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch.
As I listened faces of women who’ve I gone to church with over the years flashed through my mind.
