You have seen in the bulletin these past two weeks questions that I bet you have asked yourself before. Each question with the tag line... SOUL SISTERS. SOUL SISTERS is a group of two or more Greenville Oaks woman from different generations, who gather together when convenient, so they can share life's challenges and triumphs. SOUL SISTERS isn't a new ministry or some "one day event" - instead it is an opportunity for the woman in our church to experience true community with one another.
In two weeks, on the 28th of February, all women - high school aged and up, are invited to listen to a group of ladies share their vision of what SOUL SISTERS will be. They will discuss the benefits of havinga strong Christian confidant in your life. They will create a bridge of conversation between the many different generations of women that exist here. They will share realistic expectations of what a mentor looks lik in our busy lives. They will speak from many different perspectives on how they see their age group benefiting from these friendships.
Then, that evening, anyone interested in being a mentor, being mentored to, or possibly both, would be invited to a dinner mixer where you could connect with other women who have a desire for a mentoring friendship. From there it is in God's hands to flourish those relationships. We will not be putting women together - instead, letting the Holy Spirit lead you and guide you as you learn from one another. Whether it be accountability partners, prayer warriors, advice seekers, or just coffee drinkers who want to get together and laugh... we can all benefit from having another Christian woman to turn to in any situation.
The ultimate goal here is two fold. One is to strengthen the sense of community that exists within our church walls. But, more importantly, once we experience that mentor-type relationship first hand, we will feel equipped to mentor outside the church walls as well. If you have any questions, please contact Crystal Spencer, Sheila Hooten, Samantha Campbell, Jill Kerby, or Jana and Aislyn Reaves. SOUL SISTERS....find yourself one... on February 28th!
