Trusting Jesus in Uncharted Waters: On a Voyage
National Women’s Ministries announces the theme for 2018 for women in the Assemblies of God as: “On a Voyage.” The theme verse is, “I trust in You, O Lord . . . My times are in Your hands” (Psalm 31:14-15, NIV). National Women’s Ministries Day for Assemblies of God churches across the United States is: Sunday, February 25, 2018.
The theme Bible study is the book Voyage: Trusting Jesus in Uncharted Waters by Kay Burnett, National Women’s Ministries Director. She says:
“We are called to this voyage and invited to relish every moment of it with the One who spoke the seas into existence and breathed life into our infant lungs.
Listen for a moment. Do you hear the sound of His voice singing over you, beckoning you to join Him in the journey? It’s time to put out to sea with your Captain and let the wind of His Spirit fill your sails. Will you trust Him to lead the way? Will you trust Him to navigate safely through the storms? Will you trust Him for the journey?
Your voyage awaits . . .”
In late summer 2017, National Women’s Ministries unveiled an all-new website, located at: women.ag.org., to help equip leaders of women in local churches to effectively reach women in their churches and communities.
The 2018 National Women’s Ministries Day service gives an opportunity for every church to honor its women and encourage them to expand the ministries they currently share. Churches may wish to recognize women for their varied and valuable contributions to the ministries of the entire church.
National Women’s Ministries Day also allows each congregation to give an offering to support the Assemblies of God National Women’s Ministries Department. These offerings help continue the ministries provided to women in each district of the nation and around the world. Offerings can be sent any time during the year.
Information for planning a National Women’s Ministries Day service will be mailed in October 2017 to every Assemblies of God church, included in the resource magazine titled, Ministering to Women in 2018.
National Women’s Ministries of the Assemblies of God exists to help equip churches to effectively minister to women. The department provides strategies, training, and resources for district directors and local congregational leaders to create intentional, effective ministry to women. As women in Assemblies of God churches become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, they will discover greater joy and fulfillment, creating healthier relationships, families, churches and communities.
