One Giant Leap For Metro Womankind!

Metro's Women's Ministry is now official! 

Over 50 women - of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, age groups, and life stages – came together last Sunday, October 15 to fellowship together, enjoy lunch, and hear the vision for the ministry from the core team: Lisa Ra, Jee Cappola, Deborah Moore, and Reba Kim. 

Over lunch, the Metro women heard the vision of the ministry from these leaders. Jee and her team of UG leaders will facilitate support groups for women, including a small group modeled after the "Celebrate Recovery" curriculum and a small group for single moms. Deborah and her team will form the "Caring Hands" arm of the ministry, reaching out to women who may need extra support because of illness, grief, new babies, and other life events. Lisa and Reba will be developing spiritual formation opportunities for women such as small groups and mentorship programs. 

Betty Ho Sang, Linda Swanson, and Pastor Sanetta Ponton blessed us with prayers and a brief history of women's ministry at Metro. We ended the afternoon in one large circle holding hands and praying together, hopeful for the ways God will unite the women of Metro toward greater healing, community, faith, and calling.
