I am proud of our ladies at Seven Oaks. This past Friday they held their 10th annual Ladies’ Night. Many churches have ladies’ days, which are very effective and have their place in the church. But our ladies wanted to do something different ten years back. So they started a ladies’ night.
Ladies love to get dressed up and go out for a night out! Most women are busy with kids, grand-kids, house chores, and work. The Ladies’ Night gives them a special night to come together, where they still have their Saturdays free for other obligations. It is a night about ladies coming together for fellowship and to be treated to a special evening.
Our ladies decorate the tables, provide a great meal with scrumptious desserts. Our young ladies from the church serve the meal. Men from the church help serve in the kitchen. Then they enjoy an after dinner speaker. We have had various speakers over the years. This year they did a unique theme called, “Bloom Where You are Planted.” With this theme they asked twelve different girls and ladies from our church in various stages of life to speak about how they can serve God at their current age. It was reported to be the best ladies’ night yet! You can listen to the audio at this link. Many of the speakers had never spoken or taught ladies class in a church setting. The night has served as a great outreach for our church family. We regularly have numerous area congregations represented and lots of visitors form the community. Maybe your church may want to have a ladies’ night!
