Women’s Ministry
Director: Lisa P. Lewis

"Thank you, this year’s Domestic Violence Awareness Breakfast was AWESOME!!!!  It feels good to be part of a family that cares!"
"Sister Lisa, the Tea was awesome and the message was powerful!"

"Just wanted to say how great the (Conference) weekend turned out. God bless your hands and inspired ideas."

Girlfriends…What would we do without them? These ladies, members, and friends of SOGM across several states, meet periodically throughout the year for times of food, fellowship, and fun. The essence of this ministry is serving and uplifting one another through education, encouragement, and the love of God. Each event is planned around a different ministry theme and guaranteed to give you practical guidance and support to empower you to get the most out of life. The ministry utilizes everything from special guest speakers and panel discussions, to weekend retreats and makeovers to empower our women to go on to new levels of greatness as they improve not only themselves, but the lives of all those they come in contact with.
 
Under the leadership of our pastor's wife, Lisa Lewis,
Girlfriends! has become a central part of our local outreach efforts as well. Each year the ministry hosts its annual Domestic Violence Awareness Breakfast to honor the victims and celebrate the survivors of these atrocities. The ministry created the “Fresh Start Program” which donates monies raised to support local charities and refuge houses helping battered women and children restart their lives. Throughout the year the Fresh Start Program gives to Martha’s Carriage House, a local domestic violence family shelter, and Women At The Well, a home for women in transition. Donations are based on need and can take many forms including but not limited to gift cards, school supplies, personal hygiene products, and winter coats.
 
The
Girlfriends! ministry is committed to improving the lives of women from all walks of life, regardless of ethnicity, age, or background. Our desire is for women to see themselves as Christ sees them. We hope and pray that all women touched by this ministry will take one step closer to realizing their full potential and unleashing the greatness that resides down on the inside. Through the love and Word of God, we have committed ourselves to developing strong mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends.

Breakfasts and day events are held quarterly while weekend conferences are held at varying times.  Women are always welcome to attend and men are invited on special occasions.  Every
Girlfriends! event is guaranteed to leave you wanting more!
