I love a fresh start. That is what the Lord offers to us in 2023. A great way to get a fresh start is to connect or reconnect with Arkansas Baptists Women.
This year we are focusing on Arkansas Baptists Women Growing Together. That’s right, friend. It’s time to simplify, deepen our roots, and grow!
Let’s talk about growing together. Spiritual growth happens in the day-in-and-day-out aspects of our relationship with Jesus. Daily choices impact if we grow and how we grow. So, this year, we will focus on heart attitudes, spiritual disciplines, steps of faith, and leadership development that will increase our influence for Kingdom impact.
I hope you will join Arkansas Baptists Women on this faith adventure! Mark your calendar for Network Gatherings, Thrive Collective, Inspire Women’s Conference, and the Inspire on the Go Podcast! All of these are designed for you and the women in your church and community.
Arkansas Baptists Women’s Ministry Networks offer an opportunity for leaders to gather in regional groups to share ideas, discuss strategy, and get to know one another. The goal is to help grow a strong network of leaders who offer friendship and serve as a resource and encouragement to one another. Our desire is to cultivate relationships among women who lead in the local church as we connect, equip, support, and encourage women’s ministry leaders in each region of the state. Join the Network Gathering in your regional area on Thursday, February 9, 2023. Learn more and register at www.absc.org.wmnetworks
