Bellview Baptist Women's Ministry

Mission Statement  

Bellview Baptist Women’s Ministry seeks to glorify God by providing opportunities for spiritual growth and Christian service for the women of Bellview Baptist Church through group Bible study,  mission education, and mission action projects.

Planning

Planning meetings are held the third Monday of the month, as needed, following Bible study. These meetings are for the  purpose of  discussing  mission projects, community outreach activities, and plans for supporting other ministries of our church. In conjunction with the church's calendar year, leadership selection and long-range planning for women's ministries will take place each September.

Annual Luncheon/ Tea
An outreach luncheon/tea is held each spring for all women in the church and their guests. 
 

Women’s Bible Study
Bible studies are taught the first and third Mondays of the month.  The lessons are specifically designed to equip, encourage, and build spiritual growth in women.  Times, scheduled breaks and any additional learning opportunities will be announced in class and in the weekly church announcements. 
A youth girl’s Bible study is also being taught.  This class is designed to help young girls embrace their God-given femininity and grow in their knowledge of their Savior and Creator.   Specific times for these studies are announced through text messages.

Operation Christmas Child Ministry uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love and is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization.  Church members collect items throughout the year to create gift boxes that can make a significant difference in the lives of needy, hurting children.  These items include toys, school supplies and hygiene items.  In the fall, a shoe box packing party is held.  Special offerings are collected throughout the year to cover the cost of shipping to various countries around the world. (Contacts:  Martha Watson & Annette Watson)

 

Baby Bottle Boomerang Ministry supports and promotes the annual offering for Safe Harbor, a non-profit organization offering counseling, education, spiritual guidance, and resources for pregnant teens and other women.  The goal is to guide them in making decisions other than the abortion of their unborn child. Safe Harbor’s funding comes solely from churches and other caring individuals.  Baby bottles are distributed to church families and used to collect spare change for the organization.
