Great Joy for All beginning in June all the way through December. During a staff retreat, there was a brain-storming session that resulted in our monthly theme activities.
Change for a Dollar – Change to spare for a need for Great Joy! Ask your women’s group to donate a dollar to help others in your church or outside in your community. Take the money collected, purchase gift cards, make care baskets and give it to a family in need.
To reach outside of the church plan an event. (see Others)
There is Great Joy in serving Jesus, Others, and Yourself.
Jesus – Look for mentoring opportunities cross-generationally. Seasoned saints, the younger ladies need you to share your JOY and wisdom in their life. Host a time of sharing devotions and invite the younger ladies to join you. Keep in mind the time of day that works best for all your ladies.
- Others – Involve the community! Advocate for those on the margins, outside of the church. Make it a family-fun day!
- Yourself – Be intentional to minister to yourself. For seven days, look for ways to see how great God is in nature. Take walks with other ladies and intentionally look for ways God is expressing himself to you through outdoor life or creation. Take time for yourself so you can minister to others out of the overflow of Great Joy that only Jesus can provide.
Journal over the course of 7 days at least one thing or more that you are Joyfully grateful for. Come together at the end of the 7 days and share what God has shown you and how grateful you are. This will provide Great Joy for ALL!
Please send us pictures and testimonies from your activities.
