Women's Ministry Prayer Group

WM prayer group meets every Monday morning at 10 in the youth room in the basement.  Plenty of parking is available in the back, lower level, entering through the kitchen.  All females of any age are welcome.  Bring your kids if needed!!  We have seen it all from blow-out diapers to throwing up toddlers in our group.  The ladies love seeing Gods children.

 

A typical meeting...

We start with a few minutes of fellowship while everyone trickles in.  Then we go over any business or announcements.  This is when we plan upcoming events and come to decisions as a group.  Sometimes talking it out is the best way to get things accomplished. 

Then we move into prayer requests.  This usually takes up the most time.  This sin-sick world needs our prayers.  No request is too small.  Once we have combed through everyone's needs we break into groups of 2 or 3 and pray for the requests mentioned.  It is a very intimate few minutes with our sisters in Christ. 

Then, if time permits, we open whatever book we are going through and read a few pages as a group.  Currently, we are reading "His Robe or Mine" by Frank Phillips.  Some past readings have included The book of Proverbs and "Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings."  We are always looking for great books. 

Please make this little group a priority in your next week.  I promise you will gain a blessing from this loving group of women. 

Any questions or prayer concerns, please feel free to contact me, Whitney Wetmore at (330) 416-0729.   God Bless You!

 

Heart to Heart with Women's Ministry

This program was started in January 2018 as a monthly series.  Each installment focusing on a different topic that everyday women struggle with.  Some were fun and light-hearted, but most were hard-hitting deep issues. 

Each meeting has 30 to 50 women from the church and community attend to help promote healing.  We have brought in counselors to speak, but most have been women from our church opening up their hearts and sharing their powerful story.  You can feel the Holy Spirit really move in these brave women. 

The meetings are only open to women and never recorded to promote a safe atmosphere for our speakers.  One exception was made in September when guest speaker Pastor Wayne Owen presented on grief.  Men and women were in attendance and a meal was shared.  Each meeting starts at 6 pm either in Room 7, The Sanctuary, or Fellowship Hall.  Location announced prior to meeting. 

Thank you all who participate and those who attend!
