Relate Women’s Ministry

The Next Relate Women’s Event is

Friday January 11th – 6:30pm.

We will be making scarves for members of our deployed military as a part of Operation Gratitude. Sandra Speh will be teaching us how to crochet and we will spend the evening starting these homemade projects! We will also be sharing treats and a time of fellowship so please plan to attend! If you are able we could use some yarn donations in blues, browns, greens, grays, maroon and black. Please see Sandra Speh or Kristin Smith with any questions or to RSVP!

If you haven’t already joined us on Facebook, we can be found at “Women of Swan Lake”. We share announcements, upcoming events and prayer requests there!

Relate Women's Ministry 1

For many of us, Sunday mornings can be pretty stressful. Getting everyone out the door on time – without fighting – can be a challenge.  With that in mind, congratulations on even being in church today!

The truth is, women can often be very intimidated by one another. We want others to believe that we have it all together, as if that belief makes us more likeable or acceptable, but no one has it all together.  We know you can you relate and that is why a handful of women at Swan Lake have set out to create a safe community for women called, Relate.

Whether single or married, kids or no kids, just graduated or retired, doing well or feeling desperate – God is pretty clear about how He feels about community. He created us to be in community together, to support one another and to lift each other up.  (Hebrews 10:24-25, Galatians 6:2, and Matthew 18:20)

It is our prayer that God will use Relate to be that community for women.  A place where there is no judgment or comparison, but instead encouragement and laughter.  A place to foster the common ground that exists between all of us!

Because this is new, we don’t have everything figured out yet.  We are hoping to gather once a month, on a Friday night or Saturday morning, for a few hours. We will have an activity, a devotion, and a time of fellowship. Many of us do not know each other well – we want to change that and are hoping that this is the place to start!

Feel free to bring a friend to any and all of our events!  All women are welcome!
