Starting in 1974, women in the PCA have supported an annual love gift to promote denominational connectionalism and demonstrate our corporate helper-design as women in the church. The money is raised in various ways such as donations, fundraisers, etc. The Women’s Love Gift has blessed committees and agencies such as MNA’s Special Needs Ministries, MTW’s efforts to support the Gonaives, Haiti, Children’s Home, and other such ministries. Showing the annual Women’s Love Gift in your church does several things: Educates the people in the pew, promotes unity and greater understanding of the PCA, and provides good opportunities for monies to be appropriately channeled to specific ministry needs. Below you will find information on the ministry we are supporting this year.
The 2014 Women’s Love Gift is going
to support CDM!
The Women’s Ministry Love Gift for 2014 will benefit the work of PCA Discipleship Ministries (CDM, previously Christian Education and Publications), and particularly the work of discipleship among women in the PCA. Women play a life-giving role in the life and ministry of the Church, and we must seek to address the needs of women in our culture with the encouragement of Christ-centered community and the redemptive truth of God’s Word.
Your gift of $25, $50, $100, or any amount will equip women to understand God’s Word better through Bible study or to serve the body of Christ well through training designed to develop teachers and mentors. Our goal is to raise $120,000 with which we hope to create and distribute a variety of resources designed for women in the local church:
- Video-based training for ministry leaders
- Intergenerational resources for life-on-life discipleship
- Exegetical Bible study materials
- Scholarships for women to attend training events
- “Seed money” to offer regional training throughout the PCA
