Women’s A.G.A.P.E. Groups meet once a week, at various times and last about two hours. They provide a safe, confidential environment in which the Word of God is upheld to the utmost; specifically in areas of: Accountability, (Ephesians 5:21), Gathering (Hebrews 10:25), Admonishment (Romans 15:14), Prayer (Hebrews 7:25) and Encouragement, (Hebrews 3:13).
Wonder what A.G.A.P.E. is like? Take a moment to read personal testimonies from a few women who have been invovled.
“The Agape group I lead has been such a blessing to me. The ladies assigned to my group are a blend only God could put together – We have very independent strong women and we have passive meek ones. It’s quite a blend! I have been amazed at how each of them minister to each other. The strength of one ministers to the weakness of another. All the ladies are all open and honest and hold each other accountable in ways that deeply bonds our friendships. In fact, I am sure our friendships will last for many years. We all struggle in areas of our lives, but are so blessed to come together with ladies who really care, and will support and pray for us.”
“We come together in the beginning some of us as strangers to each other. But we come because each of us wants to draw closer to the LORD. Knowing that anything said is held in strictest confidence frees us to be real with each other. We share our weaknesses and our triumphs – we share what the LORD has done as well as what has tripped us up. We rally around when one of us is weak and when the hard questions have to be asked – it is with the understanding that it’s to keep each other accountable and strong the next time temptation happens. I love to think of us as a tapestry – we are all beautiful on the surface because what is seen is what the LORD is doing in our lives but underneath our threads intertwine touching each other, sometimes frayed but through prayer and building each other up with the cord that is JESUS the finished product is the goal. GODS’ word is spoken – a language we are all hungry for and instinctively understand.”
Yes, I love being part of an Agape Group – it keeps me honest!
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
I feel loved and supported and have a safe place to share my needs.”
“There is accountability, no condemnation, love and acceptance.”
“It’s like a big family that keeps me away from gossip because if I gossip I need to confess.”
