      Mission Statement



When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule when she gives instructions

~~ Proverbs 31:26


For we are Godís masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

~~ Ephesians 2:10

 Women in Ministry: Part 5

We have been exploring women in ministry the last several months. This monthís highlight is a little different! What I witnessed at the Womenís Ministry annual W.O.W. (Women of Worth) event was most assuredly an example of women in ministry! As I sat there that night, I heard the Holy Spiritís whispering! This! This is women in ministry! Not the event. That only allowed ministry to happen. I witnessed a whole room full of ministry happening that night!

I listened as our speaker, Kim Black, spoke to us of women in the Bible and how they ministered. I watched as your planning committee came early to decorate and prepare delicious food; I watched as they served us and stayed late to clean everything up when we were all done having fun! I watched at tables as women welcomed guests. I watched as friends comforted friends who were hurting. I watched as hurting women laughed Ė and wept. I watched as women served one another: one carrying plates for someone who could not get her own; another walking around clearing empty plates from tables; and another hugging a woman I feel certain was not hugged very often. I saw ministry! A lot of it! And I was so proud of Central and our women! Keep up the good work!
