Mary Martha Ministry
The Ladies Ministry is organized to promote spiritual growth and Christian fellowship through special activities and service.
Mary and Martha was the title chosen by this group at its beginning to be indicative of the service they intend to accomplish.
There are many different areas of service you can choose to help with within the Mary Martha Ministry.
Organizing a time and place to get together for fellowship and prayers (Ex. ornament exchange, eating together at restaurant or park, preparing a short devo, etc.).
Facilitating the process of secret sisters. Secret sisters: women of the congregation fill out a sheet with personal Information – birthday, anniversary, favorite candy, color etc. Then we draw names and get a sister to pray for and about once a month send a card or leave a candy or small gift. This is not about material things but a way to show love to each other. We will reveal and redraw names semi-annually.
Christmas Baskets for the Elderly
Gathering and making items for Christmas gift baskets and delivering them to the elderly in our church.
Contacting homes to see the needs and collect items to take to the kids (ex. school supplies, Christmas trees in our lobby with gift tags, birthday gifts, special events, etc.).
