Activities throughout the year bring women together from all ages and stages of life. Their work status differs, some are married and some single, some have children and others don’t, yet they are all bound to each other by a shared yearning to connect with our Lord. “News from the Herd,” our Women’s Ministry email newsletter, is published 4 times a year.
Upcoming Activities for Women
Women’s Walk: Exercise, Prayer & Reflection
Saturday, Feb. 24
Meet at the church’s main entrance on Cumming St.
Join the Women’s Ministry for a walk around the Alpharetta area. The approximately 2-mile walk will take about 2 hours and include stops for prayer and reflection, and it will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends. The walk will begin and end at the church’s main entrance in the Cumming St. parking lot. No registration is needed.
Also mark your calendar for Women’s Ministry Breakfasts on Aug. 31 and Nov. 9 and watch for details!
Women’s Workshops: Wisdom of the Generations
Thursday, May 9
Join us for a panel discussion with women of various ages and stages in life. The workshops, “Wisdom of the Generations,” will be held twice during 2024. The evening will open with the panel discussion, followed by small-group breakout sessions for more in depth conversation. Light refreshments will be served.
Reservations for the May 9 Women’s Workshop will open on March 21.
Alpharetta Methodist Moms’ Ministry
The goal of Alpharetta Methodist Moms is to create a community for moms where authentic connections can be made through Christ. The group sponsors Bible studies and worship events for women. To learn more email AMmoms@amchurch.com.
Young Moms’ Bible Study
Wednesdays, Feb. 7-March 20
Young moms enrolled in this class are studying the Letters of 1, 2 and 3 John, written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness.
We’ll publish more studies for young moms here as they are scheduled.
Senior Women: Gourmettes
Wednesday, Feb. 28
1 p.m. (Meet in the Student Center parking lot.)
All ladies over 55 are invited to occasional lunches together in the Alpharetta area. The Gourmettes meet in the Student Center parking lot and take the church bus to a local restaurant. Sometimes the restaurant is announced beforehand; sometimes it’s a mystery! Email Rev. Terri Henkel at email@example.com to make your reservations.
