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!

Jesus loved women. His counter-culture approach to women is all over the New Testament. When society said women weren't valuable enough to even greet, Jesus went out of His way to greet a woman rejected by society. When the spiritual law of the day said "Let the words of the Law be burned rather than taught to women. If a man teaches his daughter the law, it is as though he taught her lechery.” Jesus comforted a woman when her brother died with this promise containing the heart of the Christian gospel: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” When Jesus arose from the dead, His first appearance was to women! Jesus gave women status and respect equal to men. Not only did he break with the anti-female culture of his era, but he set a standard for Christ-followers. We, as Christ-followers must value women.

I want to encourage women to see themselves as Jesus would. We are valuable because God sees us as valuable. I want women to be loved and love others by realizing that their beauty should not come from outward adornment. Instead, it should be that of their inner self- the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. Why? For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful.

New Life women's ministry strives to do this- to see the value in every woman, and to help her realize her worth in Jesus' eyes!

I hope to see you, beautiful one, at the next women's get-together!

Christian fellowship is so important to walking daily with God. We need the encouragement of one another in both the good times and the hard ones. The once a month Women’s Gathering (1st Monday of each month) provides a place to begin to develop and grow together in our walks with God. It is a “come when you can” event, but I hope it will grow into a once a month family reunion that you don’t want to miss.

Women’s Ministry is a calling God has placed on my heart to invest in for the greater good of the church, but to also foster close relationships between women in our church family in a time when fostering relationships often gets crowded out of our busy lives. The Women’s Gathering is a great place, for women in all walks of life, to come together in a safe, confidential environment to know that they are loved, accepted, and belong to the greater family of the church. We hope that each month, you will be encouraged, challenged, uplifted and inspired to walk more closely with God than you did the month before.
