Try Something New
The beginning of the year is a good time to do some “out-of-the-box” thinking with your leadership team. Try something new! Do your women’s ministry events for 2015 include a lot of the usual, the familiar, the traditional and the tried and tested? I think most of us would say a resounding “yes!” to that question, even though we are always on the lookout for new and exciting things to try and incorporate into our women’s ministry.
Maybe Retreat-in-a-Bag can help you try something new. Have you ever used a skit? Start small and try one of our one-act skits or pull a short skit from a skit series and see how your ladies respond. A good one to start the year out might be “Good Intentions” from our Confronting Your Giants skit series.
We also have a section for Quiet Time Studies that we have used at retreats. But some of our most recent ones have been “interactive”meaning that they can be done in a group and requires some sort of interaction. Check out “Strongholds of Unsurrender”.
Perhaps you have never had a retreat for your women. You can start out small. Take some of our retreat ideas and make them your own–or look into one of our Retreat-in-aBag books where the planning is done for you. Or maybe you have never used promise verses at an event or retreat.
And if Retreat-in-a-Bag doesn’t have what you need, check our our links. There are some great women’s ministry sites out there!
