Women's Ministry Theme
Posted October 26, 2010
Serving God with the talent and skills He gave each of us.
This is a theme revolving around gingerbread girls. God made us each different so that we can each serve the Lord in a unique way.
What better time than Christmas to be encouraged to serve the Lord and share the good news of Christ's birth in the wonderful way God intended us to.
