Welcome and SMC Kick off

Welcome to the Wilson's Mills Baptist Church

Women's Ministry Blog!

This is where you will find random (and if you know me know it might be RANDOM!) updates and announcements about Women's Ministry and WMU at WMBC.

To kick off the blog...I have an interesting challenge for you ladies this's called a Scripture Memory Challenge (SMC) and I double dare you, no I TRIPLE DARE you to join me! I participated in a challenge last year on Beth Moore's blog and it blessed me more than I could have EVER imagined! Each month on the 1st and 15th we would log in with our scripture verses and learn them in the 2 weeks. So at the end of the year we had learned 24 scriptures! It was very challenging at times but exciting and rewarding. Well this year Beth opted not to continue the challenge. So I thought I could just continue on my own...but without the accountability of having to log in each time...I have failed!!! I have even forgotten 4 of my 24!!! I am so disappointed in myself. But instead of throwing a "pity me party"...I am issuing a challenge to YOU to participate this year with me!!! Let's hold each other accountable! Or if nothing else....y'all hold ME accountable! So on the 1st (or hopefully the night before) I will post "SMC ##" and open it for comments. I will give you a suggestion verse or you can use your own verse...please make this YOUR own! You will be more apt to stick it out if you are listening to God to pick your verses. But if you don't have anything burning to learn on the day...just use the one suggested. You do NOT have to be a WMBC lady to participate!!! So when you post please include your name (and church if not WMBC) so we can encourage one another throughout the process. Let me know if you have any specific questions regarding the challenge...we'll announce details for a special SMC celebration don't give up!

Also keep checking back for other misc updates throughout the month!

Have a great week...

Your Sister in Christ,

Kristy Gardner

  8. I don't know how to comment on your new post. I am learning. Maybe you will have to do a lesson on blogging. My verse is I Corinthians 15:58 NIV "Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."

  9. Very excited to learn new verses and have my new friends to encourage and guide me
