Women’s ministry arises out of Scripture. Paul encouraged women to teach, nurture and help each other grow into mature Christians (Titus 2:3-5). Women’s ministry provides an opportunity to get together as sisters in the Lord, where being a Christian is the common ground, with the goals of strengthening relationships with Jesus and with each other.
Mojave SDA women’s mission statement
To glorify God and encourage our family, church, and community with the love of God and teachings of Jesus Christ through prayerfully planned activities and events for women inside our church and out in the community, which promote spiritual growth and lead women to Christ.
THE 4 distinct roles OF WOMEN’S MINISTRY:
1. STUDY – WE MUST PROVIDE WOMEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO STUDY GOD’S WORD.
2 Timothy 3:16-17(ESV), “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
2. SERVICE – WOMEN NEED OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE OTHERS.
Doing so together, as the body of Christ, builds unity, encourages growth, and develops relationship. 1 Peter 4:10 (ESV), “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
3. SUPPORT – WOMEN NEED SAFE PLACES WHERE THEY CAN FIND BIBLICALLY-SOUND SUPPORT.
Through prayer and encouragement; It is a support system for hurting women,—whether they are suffering from divorce, abuse or simply loneliness. Ecclesiastes 4:10 (ESV), “For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”
4. SOCIAL – WOMEN BENEFIT BY REGULARLY MEETING TOGETHER WITH OTHER BELIEVERS.
Offer opportunities for Christian friendships to form and mature. Hebrews 10:25 (ESV), “Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
