That was the reaction when the doors opened to Chocolate Heaven last night. More than 200 women showed up for the inaugural event of our Women’s Ministry, Uptowne Girls. The decorations were amazing, The chocolate was spectacular (chocolate dipped Ruffles potato chips?). And Genni Owens!? Wow! She is amazing.
It was so cool to see all those women gather in the name of chocolate and, more importantly, God. To know that they were all joined by a common spiritual bond was an amazing thing. Seeing them enjoying each others company, the food, and the concert by Ginny, well it made me want to be a woman (not really, but you know what I mean).
So what? Isn’t it obvious? Doing things with friends and being willing to identify with God at the same time is a very cool thing to do. It’s not a girly thing either. It’s something that we all need to work toward.
So the Women’s Ministry, Uptowne Girls, is off to a great start. I am looking forward to how God is going to use this group to impact our church, our community, and the world with His love.
Great Job Ladies!
