Need a Mother’s Day gift for the women in your church, Christ-focused door prize gifts, or a 7-week study with no homework?
I’ve got solutions for all of these women’s ministry dilemmas!
I recently had the opportunity to review Ordinary Moments. Extraordinary God., a brand-new resource line from CTA – Christ to All.
Ordinary Moments. Extraordinary God. encourages women to look for God in their everyday ordinary moments.
Stuck in the routines of everyday life, we can miss how God’s at work all around us.
Seeing God in those ordinary moments allows us to “Rejoice and be glad” Psalm 118:24, the focus scripture for these resources.
This product line is gorgeous! The color palette includes a soft green, mellow yellow, and luscious lavender. The subtly muted photograph of a bouquet of flowers, a stack of books, and a welcoming chair invite women to sit with Jesus for a while.
It’s a soft, graceful, feminine feel.
- Job’s wife
- Mary of Bethany
- Mary, Jesus’ mother
Your women will see how God worked in each of their lives in an extraordinary way!
The 30-day devotional highlights the experiences of these 7 women in the Bible – love, loss, heartache, prosperity, frustration, confusion, shame, courage, family issues, and the blessings and burden of leadership. Your women will see glimpses of themselves in each story.
Each daily devotional points women to a focus verse and ends with a prayer. As each woman from the Bible is introduced women additional scripture verses are noted to allow women to read more of their story.
One thing I love about this devotional is the focus on each Bible story. Each day’s reading is directly tied to a woman in the Bible and her story. It’s rooted in the Word of God, not personal stories.
In addition to the devotional, CTA has created a wonderful selection of coordinating gifts – perfect for Mother’s Day, door prizes, team appreciation, blessing bags, and event favors.
Check out the:
- Tote bag
- 3-pack of Emory boards
- Ceramic mug (12 oz.)
- Bookmark and pen set
- Spiral prayer journal
- Journal stickers
- Travel tumbler
- Journaling art cards
- Gift bag
The creatives in your group will love the 12 Journaling Art Cards – one side features a design to color and the other side includes a journal prompt with room to respond. Consider giving each woman in your church a set of cards for Mother’s Day this year.
The ceramic mug is no dainty teacup! Your woman will love that it holds a generous 12 oz of their favorite beverage. It comes packaged in a colorful gift box ready for you to hand out. It’s also microwave and dishwasher safe.
The Spiral Prayer Journal and Journal Stickers are my personal favorites! The quality of the journal is impressive. The cardstock cover features a soothing color photograph with a metallic gold border. The spiral binding is sturdy and certain to hold up well over time. Undated and lined pages allow women to use it as the Lord leads. The sticker sheets are stylish and the coordinating colors make them a great companion piece to both the Prayer Journal and the Devotional Book.
If your budget allows, you could give away one item as a door prize each week and then a gift to everyone at your last meeting. You may want to put them all in a basket and let the door prize winner select their own gift – ensuring they’ll get an item they want and will use.
7-Week Women’s Ministry Leader Guide
CTA has created a solid 7-Week study of these women in the Bible.
The Women’s Ministry Leaders Guide has everything you and your team will need. You’ll find step-by-step instructions that you can adapt to use for your group.
The Women’s Ministry Leader Guide is a 24-page digital guide – download it and use it immediately.
If you need something to fill the gap between your winter and summer Bible study, this would be a great study to add to your schedule. Or if you’re looking for a summer Bible study solution, this study has no homework and each session stands on its own.
- Session 1: Extraordinary Mercy
- Session 2: Extraordinary Restoration
- Session 3: Ordinary Service
- Session 4: Moments as an Outsider
- Session 5: Moments of Worship
- Session 6: Ordinary Work
- Session 7: Extraordinary Faith
Each session is designed to last between 60 and 90 minutes and includes Welcome, Moments of Refreshment, Moments in God’s Word, Faith or Fellowship in Action, As You Go, and Prayer.
Sessions are anchored in a scripture passage that is read out loud. Discussion questions guide the conversation and help women to see an extraordinary God at work in each woman’s life.
Every session includes a detailed script making it easy for your hostess to guide the group through the content. If you have women who are new to leading a group, this format will give them the support and confidence they need to lead and succeed.
I love the opportunities for participants to put their Faith in Action. One week they might pray for and write cards to church members that are homebound and in nursing homes. Another week they will write an encouraging note or Bible verse on the card and then give it to another woman at the session.
From snack ideas to icebreaker questions and a suggested prayer, the Women’s Ministry Leader Guide offers an approach that is biblical and simple (sometimes we make things more complicated than they need to be).
The price of the Women’s Ministry Leader Guide is unbelievable! The retail price is just $4.99 and it’s currently on sale for $1.99! Yes, really! That’s for all 7 weeks of the study!
Ordinary Moments. Extraordinary God. invites your women to journey with seven courageous women.
As we see how God uses their lives for His glory may we be encouraged to look for the ways God will guide our lives too.
