A Letter from Krista Davis about the heart of Women’s Ministry:
Just as a mama is the heart of the home; women’s ministry is the heart of the church.
My vision for women’s ministry can be summed up in three words: seek, serve, share.
Our mission in women’s ministry is the same as the church: Making Disciples, Making a Difference. My vision is how we’ll accomplish Word of Life’s mission.
First and foremost we will seek the Lord through coming together for Bible Study and prayer, as well as in our private times of devotion. “Look to the LORD and His strength; seek His face always.” (Psalm 105:4) His face is beautiful and we’ll find it by examining Scripture. Face to face with His Word to us. And we’ll find it by looking into each other’s eyes. Face to face we will see His reflection.
Secondly we’ll serve our church, our community, the world. “Each one should use whatever gift he (she) has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10) My heart is that, shoulder to shoulder, we’ll administer God’s grace many times in many ways.
By seeking God first, and then serving others, we’ve laid the ground work to share the good news of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Why would anyone care what we have to share if they don’t know that we care.
Step one and step two are the building blocks in equipping us to ‘make disciples and make a difference’. “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15b)
Please join me in a “spiritual pedicure” as we seek, serve and share. And by the way, this will be a fun adventure, I’m sure of it.
With love from my heart to yours,
