The Women Fellowship Band comprise of all female bands in the Church. Our primary aim is to foster, educate and develop the qualities of a “Virtuous Woman” amongst every woman in this Church. The Good Women in the Bible serve the Lord with their minds, souls, hearts and strengths. We are trying as much as possible to emulate and focus our attention on the ideal women as described in the Bible (Proverb 31:10-30). The virtuous woman described in the scripture, is the woman who puts God first and have a relationship with God and does not only rely on her abilities, talents or any form of acquired skills, all her accomplishments and her strength comes from God.
Today’s women should be encouraged to portray God-Inspired character and follow the examples and the characteristic of good women in the Bible. Our teaching is based on building a strong, dignified, multitalented, caring women who are individuals on their own and able to manage their family affairs. Their husband’s true life partner in every situation as describe in (Genesis2: 20-23), and can be completely trusted with the family responsibilities and belongings.
Examples of Virtuous Woman
According to (Proverb 31:10-22) A virtuous woman must have a skills and abilities with the heartfelt sensitivity and compassion to care for and fulfill the needs of people who are less privilege. Cheerfully and energetically to tackle the challenges each day brings. Her husband and children love and respect her for her kindness and generosity. However, her responsibility is to look up to God and her primary concern is God’s will in her life. She is a woman after God’s own heart.
