The purpose of the Women's Ministries is help the women in the church growin every area of their lives; as they study and apply the Word of God to their lives.
The women's ministries have unique programs which enable them to engage with each other through prayers, worship, testimonies, seminars, visitations, banquets, and support to other less fortunate women in Canada as well as other parts of the world.
“Since the beginning of this great church, our women have been the backbone and catalysts in this church.” This was part of Rev. Dr. Charles Mantey’s closing remarks during this year’s Women’s Day Celebration at Disciples Revival Church on Sunday September 11th. For sure, the day’s event attested to the pastor’s remarks.
The celebration began with a powerful opening prayer; followed by praises and worship. Definitely, it was a real jubilation as the women danced to the glory of God. After Scripture readings and solo renditions, some of the women through skit highlighted some of the challenges facing parents in raising teenagers, and the solutions needed to cope. This was followed by testimonies from three of the women; who told the congregation how Disciples Revival Church has supported them to weather through every storm since they came to Canada.
The sermon was delivered by Rev. Faustina Mantey. Speaking on the topic: “God uses women to accomplish his purpose in his church,” she encouraged the women to emulate the examples of Queen Esther and Deborah who because of their commitment to, and love for God, were used to bring victories to their people. She told the gathering how God is still looking for women who are prayerful, humble, committed and courageous to accomplish his work in his church.
In her report, the president of the Women’s Ministries, Sister Mardea Solanke narrated some of the helps the group was able to give to the bereaved, new mothers, single parents and the needy both within and outside the church. She reminded the women of the untold hardships facing many women in our communities and other parts of the world; and how Disciples Revival Church ladies could help to alleviate some of their burdens. Sister Mavis Serwah-Bonsu gave the vote of thanks; after sisters Felicia Asare and Odette Thomas had led the fundraising drive in support of the ongoing activities of the Women’s Ministries.
