Sisterhood Ministry








FOUNDING STATEMENT


Mission:  The MOMBC Sisterhood’s mission is to mobilize Christian Women for leadership and to set an example and plant the desire in young girls and teens to serve God, Family, and Community.


Purpose:  Our purpose is to make sure that each sister grows in faith and in the knowledge of God and activate each sister for service to God so that they will be ready for the return of our Savior.


Goals:  The goals of the MOMBC Sisterhood are fourfold:
     1.  To assist each female member of the congregation to find her place and purpose in the church.
     2.  To cultivate and promote the Christian life of sisters through the studying of God’s word, worship, Christian stewardship, 

           leadership, and service.
     3.  To equip sisters to become PROVERBS 31 WOMEN, ready for the servant-leadership to their families, church, workplace

           and communities.
     4.  And finally, to create a nurturing environment for the mind, body, and soul that will be a safe haven through the sharing and demonstration of God’s love.
