Finding God's Calling- The theme this year is Your Story. All of us have a story that is ongoing, a story of how God is meeting us, loving us, changing us, growing us, and shining through us. Maybe your story is at an exciting climax right now and you are bursting with things to tell! Maybe you feel like your story is in the past and God is not working at all. Wherever your story is right now, come. Believe that God is not done with your story. Believe that He is working in your for His glory. Believe that He has a plan and purpose for your story, to show the world his love and grace.
When: Friday, April 27, 6:30-8:30; Sabbath, April 28, 10-3; Women's Ministries Leadership Meeting, Sabbath, April 28, 3:30-5.

Women's Ministries Emphasis Sabbath- Women's Ministries Emphasis Day is an annual event on the church's Calendar of Days and Events. The Women's Ministries leader should meet with their pastor at least six months prior to this day to discuss special plans for this Sabbath. This is an opportunity to plan a full day of activities including Sabbath School, the worship service, a fellowship dinner, and perhaps an afternoon program. The leader may also want to use this time to honor women in the congregation who have done something unusual or outstanding.

Women's Retreat- Pastor Lola Moore Johnston is our speaker for this year's retreat.
Lola Moore Johnston is a motivational speaker who specializes in helping women chart the course toward discovering their life’s purpose. A charismatic and multi-talented leader, speaker, author and performance artist, she is dedicated to her personal mission of impacting lives for the better, each time she takes the stage.
At the age of 20, Lola embarked on a solo journey across country from New Jersey to California, to attend college at a small, private university. Suddenly thrust into life as a first-generation college student completely on her own, Lola tapped into a well of discipline and leadership she never knew was in her. After completing her BA in Religious Studies and later a Master of Divinity, she has earned over a decade of experience teaching, training, and inspiring audiences across the United States and abroad.
Lola’s platform is designed around inspiring women to be brave enough to believe in themselves and build the lives they not only dream of, but deserve. Equally passionate and approachable, her work is soaked in a desire to be of service to others by giving them the tools they need to discover their destinies and thrive.

NAD Women's Ministries Day of Prayer- The Women's Day of Prayer provides an opportunity for women to learn about each other and pray for one another. It is a time to reunite with God and one another to strengthen spiritual bonds. Prayers for women everywhere create a spiritual network of empathy and understanding. Although the essential purpose of the day is for prayer, the day can also provide women with an opportunity to strengthen their ties with other Christian women as they pray together.
The NAD Women's Ministries Team provides resources for your church to have their own special Day Of Prayer church service. See the NAD website at
