Women’s Ministries - A Ministry for Every Woman
Women’s Ministries needs YOU!
Time is always a limiting factor and difficult to work around. But time invested in working for the Lord will bring its results. Many events that are planned for include bringing the children with you if no other way can be worked out. Every attempt is made to accommodate each woman so they can participate in the planned activities and fellowship.
Let us hear from you. The leadership of Women’s Ministries is open to suggestions and ideas that you might like to incorporate.

A Welcome From The Pastor
Plans include for the month of September the beginning of a morning Bible study for stay-at-home-Moms. Children are invited and will be cared for during the Bible study time. A special Bible Study for women has been prepared by the General Conference Women’s Ministries department. Time and place will be announced later. Plan now to spend one hour a week for 7 weeks.
Past Women's Ministry Events
The first meeting of Women’s Ministry for 2021-2022 was attended by 12 ladies who came out to learn how to make Fidget Mats for dementia care patients. Karen Russell from Joshua, TX. Taught the ladies how to assemble the mats and the kind of materials recommended for the mats. Refreshments were served and a good time was had by all.
This project will be continued throughout the year and Women’s Ministry is encouraging all ladies in the Crowley church to assist in making a mat at home by watching the accompanying video.
Women’s volleyball teams played during the four Saturday nights in September. A good time was had by all. Average attendance was 14 each night. Many younger girls wished to join, some having had previous experience at school. Two courts were needed to accommodate both the ladies and the children.
In the future we hope to have another round of games.
2021 Woman's Retreat
The week-end of October 1-3, 2021 was one to be remembered. With a total attendance of 32 ladies we enjoyed every minute of scheduled activities and featured speakers. The place was Lake Whitney Ranch where nature is abundant. What a delightful sight to see so many deer grazing close by or see the beauty of the waters of Lake Whitney. The opening speaker Friday evening was Letty Craig, director of Women’s Ministries for the Southwestern Union Conference. She introduced the theme for the retreat which was, “The Time is Now to be….” featuring the word, “Belong” At the close of her presentation she gave to each participant a lovely tote bag. On Sabbath we were enthralled with the music, puppetry and devotional thought with Bonnie Jordan, ventriloquist. A Bible study was given by student pastor, SamanthaLee Perez-Mitchell. Later Esther Rendon, Women’s Ministries director for the Texas Conference, presented the word “Believe” in keeping with our theme for the week-end, “Now is the Time to Believe.” After her presentation she also gifted the participants with a pot, soil and seed to represent how we are to grow up spiritually in our Christian journey.
A nature walk and a visit to the nature center filled the afternoon ending with everyone speaking on something they found in nature that brought a spiritual lesson. The day ended with a bonfire and s'mores. On Sunday after a delicious breakfast we ended with the closing exercises which included a brief conclusion to the theme, adding the word “become” which now read, Now is the time to become what God wants us to become- just like Jesus. A circle was formed and everyone sang, “God be With you Till We Meet Again”. Everyone felt that the time was well spent getting to know each other more and getting closer to God because of the retreat.
Pictures of the Thanksgiving Tea held November 7, 2021 at the Crowley Seventh-day Adventist fellowship hall. 90 ladies were in attendance. The speaker was Marti Schneider, retired General Conference associate director in Mission, and a mini concert featured Dace Sultanov, cello. A wonderful afternoon was enjoyed by all.
