Women’s Ministry seeks to facilitate Christ-centered community among all women and to empower women to live confidently in Christ.
As women, we have so many things that we juggle. In my life, I call it the ‘Spinning Plates’. Sometimes there are only a few plates, sometimes there are more and it seems like I can’t keep up! We all know what happens when the plate stops spinning…it drops and shatters on the floor! What a horrible image! You know what I realized…that is a horrible life analogy. This analogy implies that I am the only one that keeps the plate spinning and keeps the plate from shattering. How much pressure do I put on myself to keep everything going? If I drop my ‘family’ plate, my kids will shatter. If I drop the ‘finances’ plate, then it will shatter. It’s actually pretty prideful. This analogy takes no account for God, what he does in my life and how he carries me.
Can we reframe how our lives with the image that God is the one that keeps the plates spinning? Or that His watchful hand is there to catch it when it does fall? Or better yet, take on the Word of God, and cast all of our cares on Him and trust that no matter how many plates we have, that God cares more about those plates than we do.All we have to do is keep our eyes on Him, and He alone will determine what happens with the plates.
Joyful Surrender. Today, I am no longer a ‘plate spinner’. I’m a child of God.
As our church grows, women can connect and grow in a variety of ways. Check out our Life Groups page for a list of women’s groups that meet throughout the week. In women’s life groups we go deep in God’s word, encourage each other, and serve each season.
About four times a year we gather for larger group events that focus on discipleship and mission, and definitely make great connection at the same time!
Once a year, we attend the Pacific Southwest Conference Women’s Retreat at Mission Springs. 45 women from our church just returned from this incredible time! If you missed it, you can save the date for next year… first weekend in October. Mark your calendar, and prioritize this time away. You’re worth it!
Stay tuned for upcoming women’s events! God is on the move!
