Ready For Launch: Metro Women's Ministry
"A new command I give you; love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." - John 13:34
Metro, we believe God is at work. Earlier this year, He opened an invitation for several women to come together and pray for the rebuilding of the women’s ministry. Despite our limitedness (we are career women, moms, wives and already actively involved members of Metro), we believed that God was at the helm of this much-needed ministry, and in fact, this was His ministry! It had to be His doing, not ours. It was at our pre-launch event back in July - our single women’s focus group - when it all became very tangible for us. Our single women showed up! We saw and heard their excitement, support and enthusiasm as they shared their hopes, needs and challenges as single women at Metro. Honestly, that was what we needed to see. That was evidence of what God was preparing in the hearts of women for the women of Metro and beyond.
As we focus on building some firm foundations, our vision is to provide a way for women to connect and minister to one another through fun events, small groups, prayer and service—all through the spirit of His love.
We are also excited to announce some new sub-ministries! Jee Cappola and Christine Cook will be leading Metro’s first ever women’s support group. Bernice Garcia will be continuing the much-needed MetroLOVES, a group for our single moms. And we are thankful for Metro’s first ever Caring Arms Ministry, led by Deborah Moore, which will serve those in need related to childbirth, illness, hospitalization and loss.
If you would like to get involved with any of these groups, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Better yet, we hope you will join us at the launch meeting this Sunday, October 15 at 1:30pm in the Media Room where you can meet the core team, hear the vision and upcoming plans of the ministry and learn how you can get involved.
We are also preparing our kick-off event on the evening of Saturday, October 28 - a “Your Story” Night, where we will gather to worship God through the sharing of our testimonies via song, written words and more.
We hope to see many of you there!
