THE PURPOSE OF THE WOMEN’S UPLIFT
“And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed and behold the sepulcher, and how is body was laid” Luke 23:55
During the life of Jesus on earth, most of the time, there were women among the group that followed Him, in the background, but always there, ready to do whatever their hands could do.
According to the custom and culture of that time, women were of the lesser group, limited in their expressions and service, but remained faithful in following Jesus.
The Apostle Paul’s request to the Church in Philippi was “help those women who labored with me in the Gospel’ Phil. 4:3
These women had labored with Paul in his mission of spreading the Gospel message. It is the purpose of the Women’s Uplift to work with the Brotherhood in the spirit of Christ. Rom. 8:9
Helping to promote and support the Brotherhood in its endeavor to strengthen the bond of Brotherly love in every Church according to the directions of the church.
To provide that tender love, care and concern for women who need the love of God expressed toward them through human kindness and help.
The Women’s Uplift should always seek to maintain the “Unity of the Spirit in the bond of Peace”. Eph. 4:3 to work within the framework of the Brotherhood as fellow laborer’s in the service of Christ our Lord.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. NIV
