Our Theme Scripture
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted; To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind; To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”Luke 4: 18-19 (NKJV)
to strengthen and enrich the lives of women
Why? The purpose of Celebration is to strengthen and enrich the spiritual lives of women by helping them discover and grow in the fullness of life that God intended through Jesus Christ. This is a woman to woman ministry of sharing, encouraging, discipling, and mentoring in the faith.
What? Through Celebration, Jesus Christ is bringing salvation, healing to our spirits, souls, and bodies, and equipping us with God’s Word. Come Celebrate Jesus with us! Our vision comes from Luke 4:18-19. Celebration events always consist of praise and worship, a message from God’s Word, a time of powerful personal prayer, and sweet fellowship with like-minded women.
How can women in the local church start a Celebration chapter? First, earnestly seek God’s will through prayer. After determining the commitment level, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I participate? Explore our website for a listing of all Celebration chapters in your area, or attend our Celebration events (National Conference, Celebration United events) – dates and times located under Calendar of Events.
How is Celebration funded? All expenses are being met through offerings and donations from individuals. This ministry was created in response to God’s leading and we stand in faith that He will provide as we follow in obedience.
We aim to share the message of salvation - that through God's grace, you are saved!
We aim to release the power of God for freedom, healing, and transformation in the lives of women.
We aim to equip women in their faith through speakers, worship, prayer, and studies.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”
“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalms 46:10
