S.I.S.T.E.R.S. Women's Bibly Study

Jesus and Women
by Kristi McClelland


     Our Summer Bible Study is Jesus and Women by Kristi
   .   It is a 7 session exploration of how Jesus offered
   encouragMcLellandement to the hurting women of his day and how those words

   offer hope for women today.   The first session was held on Tuesday, August 10th, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  The remaining six sessions will be held on the same day and at the same time each week.

Reflection on God's Gifts

December 10th Meeting


    Don't hurry so much that you don't have time for Jesus.  Tis was the focus of a devotional by BJ Pettit at the December 10th meeting.  There is so much to do for friends and family get-togethers at this time of year that we sometimes do not have enough time to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas.

    Susan Kirby presented the Missionary Emphasis with the message that God gave us a gift of the Garden of Eden which Adam and Eve rejected or lost when they disobeyed God.   He has given us a second chance with the gift of His Only Son to redeem our souls and give us eternal life.  Susan also gave a little information on Lottie Moon and where she seved with help from Betty Floyd.

    The women then worked on putting together Christmas ornaments.  With the delicious snacks, inspiration, and fellowship, it was another great meeting.

Aprons Have Stories

    If you have an old apron of your Mother's or your Grandmother's or an old friend, cherist it for the stories it holds. This was part of the program presented by Betty Huntand her Sunday School class during the November meeting.

    Each woman attending was asked to bring an apron and share it's story.  Some had grandchildrens' handprints while others held memories of helping in the kitchen; but, each had a story. 

    Betty shared interesting facts related to aprons and to "Blessing Bags" which was the second part of the program.  The Blessing Bags contained ingredients which were tied to the story of Jesus and His Love for us all.  Ladies were encouraged to prepare a bag and give it to someone who they consider a blessing.

    Refreshments were also provided during which Susan Kirby presented the Missionary Emphasis for that day.  Susan gave the women a leaf-patterned paper bag with a card and suggested that the ladies pack it with something that they think a certain person, who may not go to church, might like and give that person the bag with the card inviting them to church.

    It was an enjoyable and interesting meeting.

May 7 packing homeless bags

    The ministry activity for the May 7th meeting of S.I.S.T.E.R.S. was packing bags for the homeless.  House of Hope backpack bags were given tp the group by the House of Hope staff.   The bags include essentials that a homeless person would need, such as water, body wash, wash cloth, and other essentials.  They also include a message from the House of Hope and a card from Evergreen Baptist Church.

    These bags are to be given out as each Baptist woman sees a homeless person.

    Betty Floyd told the group about another minsitry of the Florence Baptist Association concerning buying bilingual books for children of migrant workers.  A discussion was held on how we could help wit that activity.
