Here’s a great way to connect with your Women’s Ministries group and also come together and work as a team to reach out to your congregation and community.
Send out cards of encouragement! Have each member in your group take a set of names from either your Women’s Ministries group, your church congregation, small groups, Embrace, youth groups, or even Bell Ringers* or people helped through social services*.
Write a word of encouragement! This could include a poem, a Scripture verse, and a personal note to let the recipient know they are being thought of and held up in prayer.
A box of blank cards costs a few dollars – you can even find them at the dollar store! A book of 20 stamps costs $11.00. This cost could certainly be a donation or absorbed in addition to your monthly contribution to your Women’s Ministries group.
If you have members who are literally “home-bound” and can’t get out but would still like to participate, have someone from your group drop off a box of cards/stamps to their home.
We all need a word of encouragement! This is a great way to reach out with the love of Jesus during this time of isolation. You will also find that it will lift your spirits as well! Simple acts of kindness have the greatest turn around. God does something amazing in our hearts as we reach out to those in need!
*These cards should be given directly to the Corps Officer or Social Services director. Personal information should not be shared for these individuals.
