The women ministry is an initiative of the women of the Buea community church. This is to have a way in which women can come together like a family to share ideas and get to grow in their various gifts of the spirit. This initiative was supported by all the leaders and Christians of the BCC so they went on after the support to do a formal launching of the group. This was on Sunday the 5th of July 2009. But before the launching there were some week long activities.
There were some activities which were held from Wednesday the 1st of July to Saturday the 4th prior to the launching proper on Sunday the 5th.
On Wednesday the women meet at the BCC auditorium and they had choir rehearsal and drew some plans for the launching for Sunday which included the budget for the day and all this was coordinated by Pastor Mrs. Marceline TINSHU.
Thursday was not a meeting day because it was the day for market preparations that is they all went to the market to do buying of foodstuffs for Sunday’s program.
Friday was another day of meeting at Bcc hall. This day they did the final rehearsals and also came out with the final program for Sunday all this still coordinated by the senior pastor’s wife.
Saturday was a wonderful day as the women went out for evangelism and massive distribution of invitations. They acme out in their numbers at about four pm that afternoon and went into the quarters to distribute the launching invitations and tell people about the love of Christ.
Sunday which was the deal day all started with a 9am service in the morning coordinated by Pas Arung Bate. The man of God who gave the message was Pas Manga Joseph. He spoke on the theme “crossing to the other side”. Which in detail he meant we should not wait for leaders to pursue us to do the things of the spirit that we should take up the challenge and cross over to the other side and I think this applied to the women because they are a good example to the whole church as they have taken the challenge to cross on to the other side. After the service the women stayed back and did some final preparation for the evening. And story continues with bigger pace in the evening.
