Women’s Ministries: Women Ministering to Women
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, NLT)
Women’s ministries is not always a formally structured ministry and/or event in a church, but rather is the simple act of women ministering to women. I’ve found churches that have women’s ministries that are simple, organic, and natural. Bible study groups formed out of the desire to get into the Word, events to celebrate something, fundraisers for worthy causes, or to just have a party – these are often where we get to know each other and minister to each other. We also have some churches that have organized, growing, and very well-planned women’s ministries. They too have taken the heart call of women to nurture and have led women into ministries that go far beyond what we can do on our own.
Whatever your “Women’s Ministry” looks like, it will indeed have the heart of the women closely attached.
