HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR WOMEN’S MINISTRY
“HEART 2 HEART MINISTRIES”
The mission of the Heart 2 Heart ministry is: Women investing in the lives
of each other through wisdom, mutual encouragement and friendship. The
goal is to form strong and lasting relationships in Christ that are a source
of support, growth and strength. We see our mandate from Titus 2:3-5,
which places the responsibility on mature and godly women to teach and
disciple younger women in the faith.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor/mentee, sign ups will begin in
August. We are looking for women of all ages and all walks of life. You
don’t have to be PERFECT or make a huge time commitment to come along
side another lady for the year. We are just looking for women who want
to share life with other women in a mentoring setting.
Heart 2 Heart is also looking for a coordinator for the fall. If you have a
desire to see women mentoring women, please contact Dawn VandenBrink
at email@example.com or 399-9776.
