Mission Statement: Calvary Baptist Women's Ministry seeks to equip women to be disciple makers through bible study, mentoring and fellowship. We seek to glorify God through prayerfully planned activities and events that promote spiritual growth and are grounded in sound doctrine and biblical truths.
As we move into 2021, we can all agree that the past year has been a difficult and trying year. Many have lost loved ones, have faced a family illness, have not been able to be with family… There have also been many times of rejoicing like new marriages, new babies, new chapters in lives… Personally, it has been difficult to not be able to physically love on those dealing with sadness and celebrate with those experiencing new and exciting chapters in their lives.
The idea of community comes from the sense of responsibility we have for each other. In the Bible, God encourages us to take care of our brothers and sisters. We must remember the importance of maintaining a connection with each other while focusing on building a community of love in words and actions… even amidst a pandemic.
The women’s ministry leaders have continued to innovate, pivot our strategies, and seek new ways to keep one another connected to God’s Word and to each other. We continue to press on and focus on building community with each other. Currently there are 7 small groups of women currently meeting via zoom or in person who are intentionally studying God’s word together. It thrills my soul to see ladies of all ages, generations, and even other churches meeting together, learning together, and growing together while studying God’s word. We won’t let a pandemic stop us from doing what God has called us to do.
Continue to check in on one another today and in the days to come. When services start back up, there will still be some ladies who may not feel comfortable returning back to church in person. We need to continue to love one another, even if it is done “virtually.”
If you have never participated in a bible study and you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to speak to one of the Women’s Ministry Team Leaders. We also encourage you to reach out to any of us if you need to talk to someone. We understand people are needing each other now more than ever.
Love you all,
