Women’s Ministry Road Trip by Gena McCown, Co-Founder
The kids at our churches gather for a weeklong VBS, or go off to a fun camp during summer breaks. Our youth groups go on missions trips, off to camps, and weekend Christian concerts held by big amusement parks. Dare I ask… what about us?
Yes, there are a lot of great Women’s Conferences that we can shuttle off to. We may have a two hour luncheon every other month too. But, have you ever gotten in the car with a group of women from your church and taken off on an adventure? On a non structured, registration not required, sleep in until 10am if you like… full of fun, food, and fellowship… adventure? Or, have you ever considered taking your Women’s Ministry on a women only mission trip to minister to women rescued from the sex trafficking industry?
Rent a cottage on the beach or in the mountains for a weeklong retreat with your women’s small group.
Have a sleepover when the men are away camping or hunting, and have a great time bonding with the leaders from your Women’s Ministry team.
This fall, rent a bus, take off to Washington D.C. and check out the new Museum of the Bible . Then, go sight seeing or visit museums. Eat good food. Shop. Laugh.
Plan a Women’s Ministry trip to the next Acquire the Fire, Night of Joy, or Hillsong Concert.
Organize a mission trip for the Women’s Ministry, either within the US or outside.
Buy group tickets to a Food Festival or even a local carnival/fair and eat funnel cake and get stuck at the top of the Ferris Wheel together.
The women we are serving are not targets or projects, but real women who desire to laugh until their sides hurt. They want to have memories to put in their scrapbooks, ticket stubs to collect, and moments to look forward to on their calendars where they can simply enjoy life with their sisters.
Do you have any fun or out of the box ideas that were successful in your Women’s Ministry? We’d love to hear about these ideas! Comment here, or consider writing a piece for our site on your event and how you coordinated it.
