Free Materials for Day of Prayer March 7

Available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese

The North American Division Women's Ministries Department is delighted to bring you the annual Day of Prayer program packet. Included in the packet is a sermon, a children's story, prayer requests from the field, and multiple program ideas. This year's packet entitled "It Is Well" was written by Carolyn Rathbun Sutton, who recently became editor of the annual women’s devotional books produced by the General Conference Women’s Ministries Department.

This day provides opportunity to learn about each other and pray for one another. It is a time to reunite with God and strengthen spiritual bonds. Prayers create a spiritual network of empathy and understanding. Thousands of women (and men) gather to pray on this day. Download your free materials.

Young Women's Ministries Promotes
Netball Team as Respite

The Alpha Netball Committee and Young Women's Ministries are teaming up to begin a fifth season of netball, a sport ministry program well-suited for young women.

Many young women are faced with difficult personal and social challenges. This program is designed to engage these ladies in competitive FUN, spiritual FELLOWSHIP and physical FITNESS.

Whether you have played netball or not, you are all welcome to join. A church can create a team, or individuals can join an existing team. Weekly Sunday practices began on February 1, 2015 and are held at Mississauga Seventh-day Adventist Church from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. For more information contact Michelle at 647-388-2500 or no later than March 16, 2015.

The Alpha Netball Club (ANC) is a group of dynamic women who are confident that God is changing the world for better through their love of playing both competitive and non-competitive netball.
