The North American Women’s Ministries (NAWM) first organized as a group in 1939 in Stanberry, Missouri. These pioneering ladies desired to organize the women of the church to enter the missionary work of funding books and tracts for ministers who could not afford to purchase them in quantity themselves.
Today, there are Women’s Ministries of the CoG7 in many countries around the world. The main purpose of these Women’s Ministries is to unite in the work of the Lord.
Women’s Ministries is one of the featured ministries at General Conference Conventions. In addition, there are local, regional, and national Women’s Retreats where women are invited to meet with other women of faith for fellowship, learning and sharing.
Free-will donations, dues, emphasis, bazaars and Women’s Day offerings are the means for funding projects of NAWM.
Women’s Ministry Day is suggested to be held the first Sabbath in March each year. The theme chosen for the 2014 Women’s Ministry Day is “The Journey” with the key verse found in Ezra 8:23 (NLT) “So we fasted and asked God for a safe journey and He answered our prayer.”
A bazaar is always planned for General Conference Convention. Items donated are always most appreciated. This bazaar is one of several major fund raisers for NAWM projects.
Seekers is a program designed for youngsters ages 9–12. The Seekers program can be used at church, at home, as a neighborhood outreach initiative or as part of your Home School Curriculum. Children earn badges for scripture memorization, performing good deeds, and for developing social and life skills in godly living.
Missionary outreach has included providing support to purchase bicycles for missionaries in Africa, a sewing machine in India, a maternity clinic in Africa, and table and chairs for the Garden of Eden feeding station in Nicaragua. This is just a sample of what your faithful support over the years has provided to the missionary field.
