As an example in one small town 30 - 40 women aged from 12 - 70 accepted the challenge to do one
act of service every month for a year. They generated 4,551 hours of service with 11,437 people served.
Some of the services performed were simple tasks like bringing meals to sick, elderly, and grieving people, sending cards to encourage, making blankets for nursing home patients and parents of stillborn children.
Other services were completed when WIGS women worked together in small groups. Examples include: a VBS program was held for children and youth at risk in an area not served by a local church, a nursing home was "adopted" and a monthly birthday party was held for residents, a "Blessing Bag" drive was held and items were collected to create a bag of items helpful to homeless people, backpacks were filled with food for hungry children to take home every weekend through the school year, school supplies were donated and collected for children in need, and children in need were given clothing and gifts for Christmas.
11,437 people were served by 30 - 40 women in 1 year
After the challenge ended the story continued!
The ladies were so surprised when they heard the challenge results. They never set out to serve thousands of people. They never believed they could serve thousands of people. They never believed they could have fun while serving thousands of people. Years later these ladies are still going strong and are leaving a legacy to encourage and inspire others.
WIGS is a community of Christian women striving to help women find and develop their calling.
Many WIGS build ministry friendships (serving with 1 friend), small groups ( up to 12 people), family ministries, youth groups, home school groups, senior groups (our seniors tend to build active ministries), and more.
Some ladies who are called to be leaders begin with a small group and eventually lead others to start small groups as well. We have a special WIGS Director group to help equip and encourage these ladies.
Bible study, spiritual growth coaching.
WIGS women commit to doing one act of service every month.
WIGS women learn, grow, reach out, and build a legacy worth leaving.
