National Women’s Ministries Day
Sunday, February 26th
You Are God’s Masterpiece

February 26 is National Women’s Ministries Day in the Assemblies of God, a special day on our church calendar when we focus on ministry by and for women in our congregations across the nation.

The theme for 2006, “Masterpiece,” will proclaim that we, the redeemed, are truly God’s masterpiece. Before we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are dead in our sins, doomed, without God, and without hope. But God, the Creator of the universe, is so rich in mercy and He loves us so much that He purchased our freedom from sin through the blood of His Son, Jesus! Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are God’s masterpiece; He created us anew in Christ Jesus.

A masterpiece is something passionately and carefully created by a Master and has great value, especially to its Creator. Every woman can understand that she has great value and He will give each a life full of purpose.

The 2006 National Women’s Ministries Day service gives an opportunity for every church to honor the women of the church, and to encourage them to expand the ministries they currently share. National Women’s Ministries Day also allows each congregation an opportunity to give an offering to support the national Women’s Ministries Department. These offerings help cover the costs of and continue the ministries provided to the women of the Assemblies of God across the nation and around the world.
