Each one of us knows someone who needs another Christian to walk along side of them and be an example of what it is to be a loving Christ follower. I think often of Dr. Chris Stephens’ story of being a former drug dealer and an all around “dude” walking down the aisle of that Baptist church. Where would he be today if the church hadn’t loved him and mentored him? Amazingly God placed people in his life to mentor him and help make him the man of God that he is today.
Each one of us needs people in our life to listen, encourage and guide us. fp Women’s Groups wants to help do just that through mentoring. In the Bible the book of Titus outlines a mandate for women – 0lder women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Titus 2:3-5
Truly, I can’t imagine the impact fp Women’s Groups‘ mentors can have on the younger women. What would it look like if this generation began mimicking mentors instead of the media? Everything that is being shoved into our faces is against the Word of God. The world tells us that money, fame, success, looks and sex make us important, but God tells us a completely different story.
If you would be willing to be a mentor or are interested in being mentored, please email Patsy Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Brenda Moore in the church office at 865-251-2590 to put your name on the list. fp Women’s Groups can’t wait to see how God will use this ministry to change the up and coming generations.
