Rethinking Women's Ministry

Rethinking Women's Ministry

Many women feel they don’t fit into today’s women’s ministry programs.How can we help them belong?
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

The daughter of a pastor, Amy Simpson grew up in the church. Amy is steeped in Christianity and swaddled in Christian culture. And yet, at women's events in church she's felt like an outsider, that she doesn't fit anywhere. Why? Because she doesn't enjoy crafts, isn't a stay-at-home mom, and simply doesn't square with the assumptions churches have about Christian women. So when a ministry is set up on those stereotypes, she doesn't fit in.

So what's a woman like Amy to do when she feels like she doesn't belong in her own church? What about women who are new Christians or searching for God who don't find a fit in women's ministries in the church? We'll explore these issues in this study.
