Introducing...

Posted by Susan Fleming on

The Women’s Ministry Leadership Team has some exciting news to share, but first, let me say this. It’s our desire and mission as a team to help women follow Jesus together. As we look for opportunities to do that, we fight against the very natural human tendency to create simply fun, entertaining, and impressive events. Instead Jesus challenges us to remain in relationship with him, looking to him to lead and guide so that we can find ourselves in the middle of what God has already set in place. It starts with each of us individually on the team falling more in love with Jesus and learning more of what it means to follow Him. It extends then to our team and how we pursue God’s path for ministry.
 
As we have traveled the ministry road with God, he has been changing and growing not only each of us personally, but as a team, and we are excited to announce the next chapter He has led us to. Betty Lea has been invited and has accepted the role of our next women’s ministry director! Betty has faithfully served for many years and in many ways in our church community. She has been part of the Women’s Ministry Leadership Team for several years, and brings her experience and servant heart, developed through her own unique and personal journey. Betty is always in the middle of getting to know new people, as well as encouraging many of us along the way. There are many qualities of a leader that we’ve seen in Betty, and we are honored that she will take us into the next chapter of serving our women. The Leadership Team will be right behind her, supporting and cheering her on! Welcome Betty!
 
We also have some upcoming events we are excited about. We hope you’ll join us in following Jesus together through these:
