Welcome to Bayou View Baptist Church Women’s Ministry! We are so looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you in to the community God has given us through our shared love for Christ. Our passion is for the women of our church to be unified as we desire to grow in our individual relationship with the Lord as Paul explains in Philippians 2:1–2:
“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.”
God calls us to walk in obedience to Him and in fellowship with one another and some ways that we seek to pursue this call to unity are through women’s bi-monthly Biblestudy, quarterly book clubs and Cord groups.
Our Cord groups are born out of Ecclesiastes 4:12-which says a cord of three strands is not easily broken. We assign each woman in our church to a group with two other women where they cultivate relationships on a weekly basis. The idea behind these groups is to facilitate relationship across different ages and stages of life within our church and in this way connect with one another and have the opportunity to encourage one another to be faithful where we are in our individual walk with the Lord. Each Cord group is assigned to a widow in the church in order for the older and younger women to mutually encourage one another with testimonies of God’s faithfulness through different seasons of life. Within these groups the women make an effort to contact each other once a week either through phone calls, text messages, hand written letters or face to face on Sundays.
