Ebenezer Mennonite Church Women's Ministries

Welcome to Ebenezer Women’s Ministries!

Women’s Ministries at Ebenezer wants to encourage you through your life’s Journey!  We are beginning this newsletter in the hopes that we will better serve the needs of the ladies in our church…no matter what stage of the journey we are on.  It is our prayer that we can strengthen and encourage each other by sharing our challenges, experiences, and testimonies through Bible Study and conversation, and also reaching out to women of our community.

Upcoming Events...

All Ladies -- Women's Ministry needs you!  Please complete the following survey at  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R6NSYQJ or return a paper survey to the committee.  We would appreciate your feedback!  Please complete the survey by the end of May.  

Mystery Dinner is back ladies! Although this first one, not such a mystery, as we are meeting at Campito Lindo Mexican Restaurant here in Bluffton on Thursday, May 25, at 5:00 p.m..  If you are coming email kelli.foster@gmail.com or call/text 419-234-3559 by May 24th.  Thanks! 

 

So what can I do?  How do I get involved?                                          

Join us at an event.   Our goal is to offer opportunities for all ladies of the church.  We learn so much from each other, so events are always open to any age.

Morning Cup of Grace:  This is like coming to the coffee shop with a friend and getting a chance to sip (coffee or tea) and chat.  Very informal, we meet in Room 103.  There is also a devotion and sharing time.  Child care is provided.

Mystery Dinner:  It’s called a Mystery Dinner because the location of dinner for the evening is a surprise!  All you have to do is RSVP and then show up at church and we all take a van out to eat.  It is a really wonderful time to get to know ladies that you have seen, but maybe not gotten a chance to chat with.  It’s also an easy way to invite a friend to a “church” event!

Evening/All Day Sew: Can you tie a knot?  Do you like to chat while you work?  Then you have all the skills you need to come and help put together quilts for missionaries and others in need!  All you have to do is tie knots!
