Women On Mission

Our WOM challenge this year is for Christ followers to:

  • Follow His example
  • Step into the world around us
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Create opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ by all means possible

 

As we continue to follow the “Great Commission”, and pursue relationships, let us be aware of those leaving turmoil and hunger, and moving to unknown places.
When we follow Christ we should always be looking for ways to share the gospel with others. Let’s remember that what we choose to do is important. Do you remember why Naomi and her family moved from Bethlehem to Moab? Their country didn’t have enough food. The people of Moab did not worship God. When her husband and sons died, she decided to return home to Jerusalem. Because of Naomi’s relationship with her daughter-in-law, Ruth, she returned with her.
When we build relationships with those who don’t know our God, we show who He can be to them in their times of brokenness and times of need.
As we prepare for our special Easter Missions Offering, let’s focus on our North American Missions. A percentage of our tithes and offerings are kept in state to support local missions and ministries and some is sent in support for our international missions and ministries.
Our Women on Mission Leadership Team has set our Special Easter Offering at $2,000. We encourage each of you to share your faith through your tithes and offerings, and building relationship with those around you.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, “Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together.”
