“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11
Dear Women of Bethany:
Happy 2019! Isn’t it exciting? So much lies before us, like a blank page waiting to be written on. This must be why there are so many women on social media posting their “one word” for the year, which is intended to focus their energies on what is most important, while they resolve to make new habits.
As the Women’s Ministry Leadership Team, we, too, have taken time to reflect on what we want most as women of Bethany. In line with the vision of the church, we desire to be women who are becoming more like Jesus and those who care that other women are becoming like Jesus, too.
But how do we do that practically? We have chosen the word “PRESENCE” to be our intentional focus for 2019. This one word will guide our team, our prayers, and our events for the year. Our heart is that “PRESENCE” would have a two-fold meaning: 1) that we would be present, without distractions, in our relationships with God and with others; and 2) most importantly, that we would more fully experience the presence of God in our daily lives. We imagine that this idea will resonate with women of all ages and stages of life.
We invite you to join Women’s Ministry for a year of “PRESENCE”! In anticipation of that, we want to give you a preview of our Women’s Ministry events, all of which will be centered on the idea of being transformed by the presence of God in our lives.
So as we begin 2019, we encourage you to be intentional about being present in your relationships and entering into the presence of God daily. Join us in the conversation, both in person and on social media, as we encourage each other to become more like Jesus, one day at a time.
