Tara Hunt – It’s not about me!  Well, maybe a little…

A prayer rut (I wasn’t even aware of) and a calling to the WBC Women’s Mentoring Ministry ended up being an eye opening experience for me. I began working hard to really define and figure out what prayer is. It seems so obvious, but somehow it wasn’t to me.  This is my journey to understanding prayer; one I continue every day.

Zelda Diamond – Jesus, who came to set the captives free

The Lord set my sister free from demon possession and saved my family from being destroyed by witchcraft through the power of prayer. I want my story to encourage women to have faith and know that all things are possible with GOD, that Jesus came to set the captives free, and if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!


Rita Coker – Prayer – what, when, where, why, and how  Postits for web2

We want to have an effective regular prayer time, but wonder if we’re doing it right. What format should we follow? Is morning or night better? How long should we pray? I want to explain about the practical side of prayer and the heart of prayer, because it’s not too hard … you can do it. In fact, to have that intimate, sweet relationship with the Lord, you must do it.


Deree Tarwater  – Uprooting bitterness requires fasting. Really?Postits for web5

While complaining to God about a continuous specific problem, the scripture came to mind “this comes only by prayer and fasting.” What? I’ve tried to fast and have never been able to do it. Well, God took me through an extended fast that can only be explained as Him sustaining me. And He taught me so much more than that one specific problem. It’s truly a God-thing!


Postits for web3Debbie Pierce – Life’s busy! How can I “pray without ceasing?”

Although life is sometimes crazy busy, God has been leading me to “pray without ceasing.” At first I wondered, is that even possible? Is it realistic to pray all the time? I’d like to share some practical and precious ways that God has been teaching me to literally “pray without ceasing.” And yes, it is possible!


Mentoring Ministry 

Ladies of all ages and stages of life can experience the incredible impact of mentoring relationships, whether you’re a mentor, mentee or prayer warrior.  New mentoring groups begin each Spring and continue for six months. The next Mentoring Orientation Coffee will be Spring 2017. Get involved.  It might change your life forever! Click here to learn more about our Mentoring Ministry.

Mourning Glories

The “Mourning Glories” is a group of widows that meets on Mondays (except holidays and the second Monday of every month) from 11:30 am-3:00 pm in the Hearthside Room at the south campus.  Bring your own lunch and join these ladies for devotion, support, game time and fellowship.  For more information about this group, contact Mary Dunne at 256-704-5678 ext. 233.

Christian Women’s Job Corps

Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC) is a wonderful life-changing agency that
assists area women to become self-sufficient by equipping them with
essential educational, employment, and life skills so they can become viable
contributions to the community.  With the help of area volunteers, CWJC’s
goal is to break the cycle of poverty, be it financial or poverty of spirit.

We partner with CWJC by tutoring GED math and English, helping in computer
classes, providing lunch for the ladies, or serving as a mentor.

CWJC, a national, faith-based, non-profit ministry of the Women’s Missionary
Union (WMU), meets at The PLACE at Pulaski Pike.  For information on
volunteering, please contact Pat Swinford, Site Coordinator, at (256)704-5678
ext. 503, pswinford@cwjc.net, or visit the website at www.cwjc.net.
