Somtimes I like taking things that are popular in daily life such as home decorating or party ideas and using them to my advantage where a ladies smeeting is concerned. 

Here are some ideas for meetings along that line.

Mason Jar or Ball Jar

This makes a great vintage, old fashioned, or nostalgic type theme.

Devotional and Theme Title Ideas

  • A Life Well Preserved  (thanks to Kimberly M. for this title idea)
  • Well Preserved
  • Provisions (devotional by Julia)
  • Have a "Ball"  (joy in Christ or life in Christ)
  • Filled to Overflowing
  • Filled to the Brim  (with excitement--for Women's Ministry Kick-Off)
  • Full of Joy
  • Fruit of the Spirit Theme
  • Heart Keepers
  • Stored Treasures
  • Chock full of Joy
  • Down Memory Lane  (remembering the blessings)
  • Like Yesterday  (learning from the past but moving on in our Christian life)
  • Packed with Blessings
  • Old Fashioned
  • Of Olden Days  (getting back to the basics in the Christian life)
  • Bygone Days
  • Vintage Fair
  • Country Fair

General Ideas

  • Share mason jar art prints for favors or door prizes.
  • Use mason jars for centerpiece vases.
  • Use mason jars as candleholders.
  • Serve a dessert in a mason jar.
  • Use mason jars for drinks.
  • Use mini mason jars for jelly or jam favors.
  • Group Project:  Make layered gift in a jars  (with Mason jars)
  • Group Project:  Make a mason jar craft.
  • Icebreaker:  Fill a mason jar with candy or other small items and have everyone guess the number inside the jar.

There are dozens (probably hundreds) of mason jar ideas online from baking in them, crafting with them, decorating, artwork, and all kinds of things.  You will probably find so many mason jar ideas your head will spin.


I was reading one day about chevrons and how they are used in military or police uniform patches to distinquish rank.  I sure love that I have a Great Commander. 

I've got to follow his direction and obey His commands.  There is a place for each of us in the body of Christ.

Devotional and Theme Title Ideas

  • Following the Great Commander
  • Ambassadors for Christ--2 Corinthians 5:20
  • Falling in Line--many members - one body - 1 Corinthians 12:1-20
  • Follow the Leader--Matthew 4:19
  • In the Lord's Army
  • Soldiers of Christ
  • Of Noble Rank (being a child of God)

General Ideas

  • Tip: If you are going to decorate, don't overdo for this.  Maybe a chevron tablecloth or napkins but chevron patterns are busy so less is more.
  • Use chevron print tags for favors.
  • Use chevron print cupcake flags.
  • Find a uniform with chevron badges to display.


Devotional and Theme Title Ideas

  • Written on the Walls---Deuteronomy chapter 6 with key verse 9.  Leaving God's Word and His commands for our children and for those who come after us.
  • Written on our Hearts--Hiding God's Word in our hearts.
  • Written Words--Job chapter 19. Key Verse 23.  Job declares in verse 25, that his Redeemer lives.  What are we declaring?  Are we declaring our faith like Job?
  • Love Letters Theme
  • School Theme

General Ideas

  • Post your menu on a chalkboard display.
  • Post a Bible verse on a chalkboard display.
  • Use chalkboard tags for favors.
  • Use mini chalkboards with a saying or verse for favors.
  • Label foods with chalkboard signs
  • Group Project:  Do a chalkboard craft.
  • Invite a chalk artist for a speaker.
  • Share chalkboard art prints for favors or door prizes.
