OVERVIEW

This group is for women looking to sharpen or be sharpened spiritually by other women. Our desire is to emulate the wise woman found in Proverbs 31 while becoming more like Christ, and our focus is Titus 2:3-5: “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.” We want to bless women with love, while encouraging them in the truth of the Word. Feel free to post questions and comments; to share struggles and encouragement, while remembering Ephesians 4:29! Welcome to the sisterhood of New Life CityChurch!

I’m drawn to Women’s ministry because I know that we are stronger together. There’s something powerful about women banding together in the body of Christ. Each one of us is like a unique piece of fabric, fearfully and wonderfully woven. While each one of us is beautiful alone, together we become something even better. Together we are like the puzzle pieces of a quilt, fitting in the gaps of each other’s weaknesses, forming a masterpiece.

In the high priestly prayer, Jesus prayed that we would be one in the body as He and the Father are one (John 17:21-23). I am excited about how the Holy Spirit is growing and bonding the women together at New Life City Church. Having found my authentic self in Christ, I am passionate about helping other women do the same. After years of struggles, I’m finally walking in His victory. Struggles still come and go, but my circumstances don’t wear me out like they used to. I want to lead other women to walk in His victory too.

Whenever I think of women’s ministry, I love to look back at women who historically made an impact on this world for Jesus. One of my favorites is Elisabeth Elliot, who was a missionary who inspired generations of evangelical Christians by returning to Ecuador with her toddler daughter to preach the Gospel to the Indian tribe that had killed her husband. In her book Let Me Be a Woman, Elisabeth said, “The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman.” This is what we as a women’s team desire for each woman- to see each woman (ourselves included) grow in her walk with Jesus so that the world can see the difference He has made in her life. We want to support each other with love and truth, encouraging and building each other up. We do this by being authentic and invested. When you come into a women’s meeting, you will be greeted and accepted. You will be allowed to be as vulnerable as you are comfortable, knowing that we will respect your space. You can be assured that we will share the Truth and pray for you. You will learn exactly what it looks like to have a close relationship with Jesus. You will be around women of all ages, ethnicities, socio-economic statuses and backgrounds. You will be around those raised in the church and those who have never attended church before! Most importantly you will leave knowing this- Jesus wants you to know Him more. Luke 11:9-10 Jesus said “And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” So welcome to the women’s ministry of New Life City Church! We are thrilled that you are here!

I consider Women’s ministry such a blessing, and also an INTEGRAL part of my life. God, in His perfect design, did not create mankind to “do life” alone, but in community. I am convinced that the community of women, no matter age, stage of life, background, etc., is CRITICAL! Women today live in a world of competing demands and priorities—we are being stretched sometimes beyond what we think we can bear and we need a safe place to share our hurts, fears, successes, failures, joys, prayer requests—our hearts. My hope and prayer is that at New Life CityChurch we can be a community of women modeling​Acts 2:42-47​:
“​They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and prayer…All the believers were together and had everything in common….they continued to meet together…They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
May we be true and authentic in our love for one another and continue to point one another toward Jesus Christ, in order to live a life worthy of the gospel.
