LIFT Women’s Ministry

It has been well said that women are the heartbeat of the home, but at the same time, women are too often seen as objects, rather than the individuals God created them to be.  At Salem Tabernacle, we embrace the unique and intrinsic value that each woman has, and encourage them to walk in the fullness of God’s plan for their lives.

And speaking of “walk” – we know that we need to walk “by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7), so this ministry’s vision is to give our women the tools they need to walk in their faith in Christ.  With meetings and events scheduled throughout the year – culminating with the Annual Christmas Party – LIFT is always presenting new and creative ways for the women of our fellowship to serve and learn together.  Whether it’s a guest speaker or an enticing culinary endeavor, LIFT is here to bring some fun and some insight that will truly enhance your walk with God.
