Heartstrings 2016 Mission:
Telling Our Stories
Women’s Ministry exists to fulfill the purpose of the church which is to carry out the Great Commission. The fuel for effective women’s ministry is the Great Commandment, “Love God…Love others.” Fulfilling the Great Commission by following the Great Commandment leads to women who are loved, reached, encouraged, engaged, and empowered. Our Heartstrings Ministry pledges to tell our stories so that we can
1. Lead women to a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God
2. Lead women to take part on God’s eternal purposes in “everyday” ways
3. Lead women to demonstrate spiritual fruit
All Trinity Baptist Church ladies are encouraged to find their niche in one of the five areas of service.

“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)
We are all primarily motivated by a deep core need, a thirst, for God. Over 540 times, from Genesis to Revelation, the Scripture describes different aspects of the heart of humanity. “…in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15

FELLOWSHIP: Judy Caskey, team leader
“And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Acts 2: 46-7
Women are relational and need to experience the love and support that comes from other women. As we share our gifts and talents to create an environment of ease, friendliness, and acceptance, women feel loved, valued, and a sense of belonging.
"Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don't be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!" Nehemiah 8:10
