Women’s empowerment has been on the rise in recent years. Looking to continue with that momentum, on May 5 Fellowship Church will host “HerStory,” which is a women’s fellowship that will allow women of the congregation and community to come together.

The idea came to Fellowship Church First Lady Tiffany Jones, who then communicated with her women’s leadership team at the church and the idea took off from there.

“We believe that every woman has a story and many of the stories have yet to be written,” said Jones. “We know that there are women that have been divorced, hurt or are single mothers, so we just wanted women to come together to share their stories.”

“It’s not going to be a preaching event. It will be more workshops,” she said. “It’s just a time for women to come and forge relationships with other women, to be encouraged and share their stories on where they are in life.”

The fellowship will focus on four key areas: mental health, balancing life, praying and waiting on God. Dr. Nannette Funderburk, licensed professional counselor, will be joining the event to help with the mental health aspect.

“We want to look at the women from a 360 degree aspect, meaning physically, mentally and spiritually,” she continued. “We just want to make sure we are taking care of all areas, especially for us because women take care of everyone else but sometimes we put ourselves to the side.”

Jones feels an event like this is important because she says many women feel like they are alone. She says this is a time where a woman can just let go.

“I feel like women need an event like this so we can come together and can feel each others’ hearts,” she said.

According to Jones, if this event turns out as well as she anticipates, it will become and annual event. She plans to have smaller get-togethers with women at restaurants or coffee shops to make sure women feel like they have someone to talk with.

She says she wants women of all ages and demographics to come out to the event. She feels the older generation can teach the younger women and vice versa.

For more information about “HerStory” please text HerStory to 88202 or call the church at (336) 788-1815.
