When: Second Saturday of the Month, 9:30 AM
Location: The Church (485 Winsted Rd, Torrington, CT, 06790)
The women’s ministry of Grace Life Church was originally started in 2010, as a way of giving the women of the church time to come together and to fellowship. As a relatively new church at that time, we didn’t all know each other, so the women’s breakfasts gave us the first real chance for the ladies to sit down together and have the kind of uninterrupted time together that the regular church services usually didn’t allow.
Over time, our breakfast has evolved in many ways. We have become friends, family, and true sisters in Christ. We have done bible studies, had guest speakers, and shared our testimonies. We have grown from being just the women of Grace Life Church, to including women from other churches. We greatly enjoy having visitors from other churches, because it has given us a chance to get to know others outside of the church that we wouldn’t ordinarily encounter.
Over time, we have recognized many things about ourselves:
We are an amazing, talented group of, Mothers, Wives, Aunts, Sisters, and Daughters;
We are, Students, Stay at home Moms, Professionals, Unemployed and Retired;
We are, Teenaged through Grandmother aged; (and all eternally young
We are alike in as many ways as we are different…
Aside from being women, the only other thing that every single one of us has in common, is that we are all precious, beautiful, and loved beyond measure, by the most wonderful Father in the world…
AND THAT MAKES US A FAMILY.
No matter where we all come from, we know that God is drawing us all together, because iron truly does sharpen iron, (Prov 27:17 – As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.) and we know that as we come together, we are all becoming stronger. We know that God is doing this so that we can learn from each other, and so we can move forward in the things of Him. Most importantly, He wants us to pursue His purpose, which is to win others to Him, and to build them up.
Did you know that sharing a testimony of what God has brought you through is the fastest way to help to build and reinforce the faith of someone currently going through the same things God has brought you through?
As His Word says, there truly is, strength in numbers!
Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
– Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
These ladies are here to learn together, to build each other up, to support each other, to pray for each other, and to love each other. So, no matter where you come from, or what church you attend, if you haven’t come out to our Ladies breakfast at Grace Life Church in awhile, please come out and join us! We want to get to know you!
We meet on the second Saturday of each month, at 9:30 am, at the church. We usually have a speaker, which may be a lady from our church or someone from outside, who is invited in to minister to us. During our time together, we talk about our own experiences, minister to each other, and just have a blast together.
