Each lady who wants to be involved, will be mailed an information card with dates that are important to your new Sister of Encouragement (SOE) and little bits of information about them as well as a photo, at the beginning of the Sister of Encouragement year (October). We not only encourage each other but also have several times during the year that we have project night and work on goodies for our home bound members. We personally deliver the completed projects so that we may visit with our members.
During the year, you can send your Sister of Encouragement a note to let her know you are thinking about her and praying for her. It can be in recognition of a special day (anniversary, birthday, etc.) or simply to say I am thinking about you and praying for you. In addition, occasionally if you wish, you may give her a gift (who does not like getting a little surprise once in a while). Often gifts are given on holidays and other special days in your Sister of Encouragement’s life. Someone than you may place gifts on and notes on the Sister of Encouragement table outside the Fellowship Hall or hand deliver or mail to their home.
It is wonderful to have someone that prays for you daily and is there to send you an encouraging not from time to time. We will be keeping our “Sisters” a secret, so don’t let anyone know whose name you have. At the end of the program year (October 2018), we can reveal who our “Sisters” are.
If you would like to be a part of Sisters of Encouragement, we would love to have you as part of the ministry!
