NOT meeting yet for Coffee & Connection in Belzoni ...Inviting you to PRAY together!

Ladies - We will NOT be meeting for Coffee & Connection in Belzoni on Saturday, November 7th, 2020.  

Until we meet again, please continue to pray for one another, for our sister churches, our pastors, and all leaders!  

Maybe you can reach out by phone to pray with a faithful friend, or meet with 1 or 2 or a few women in your church to share a few scriptures and pray together.  (Maybe meet early for 15-20 minutes prior to a worship service?)  Or set another day and time each week...for “Ten minute Tuesdays” or “Weekly Wednesdays”.  Pick any time that works for you...I just want to urge you to FIND A FRIEND and share encouraging, hope-filled, life-giving words...and continue to PRAY!

If you are interested in gathering with a small group in the North Jackson area, to pray together this Saturday 11/7 at 11:00, please text me (Shelli) at 6O1-5O6-2782.  Text your NAME & “RSVP for PRAYER GROUP”, so that I can get a head count and give you more details.

May God bless us all as we KEEP LOOKING UP to Him!  HE IS GOOD!

“Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  I Thess. 5:16

July update for Presbytery Women's Ministry


July 7, 2020

Hello Ladies -

Here’s a quick update of all that is happening (and NOT happening right now!) with Presbytery Women’s Ministry in the Mississippi Valley, due to the Coronavirus and current situation in our country. 

We are still “on hold” since the decision was made in early March to postpone the Coffee & Connection that month at Wynndale, and now we have also postponed the C&C that was set for July at Lakeland.  Both churches would like to host a C&C sometime in the future, when things are up and running again. 

Many of the MS Valley churches are just now beginning to gather for worship, and trying to keep everyone distanced.  All the churches that I know of are not yet meeting for Sunday school classes or any groups of more than 10 people, so it’s not feasible to try to host large groups yet for a Coffee & Connection, or try to “talk around the table” while maintaining our distance.  Many women would not be willing to attend at this point, either. 

We have not been meeting for Lunch Bunch, since restaurants were closed, and things are still sketchy with travel and any type of social settings as things begin to open again.  So we have continued to wait (and pray!) and we have not had any Presbytery-wide women’s meetings offered since March, 2020.

For future updates, please check back on this blogsite and the Facebook pages listed below.  We will let you know when upcoming events are back on the schedule!   Also, please check the Facebook group for prayer requests and FEEL FREE TO POST prayer requests, questions, comments and encouraging words there, too!  These groups were created for women to connect with each other!

The national team has posts on their website (pcacdm.org) and registration information for the regional “Hinged” conferences, starting with the one in Birmingham to be held September 18-19.

Please continue to pray for the pastors, leaders and churches of our Presbytery, and for the PCA, and all of our brothers and sisters in Christ, here and around the world!  This is such an unusual time in the life of our country and the whole world.  But thankfully, we can trust that our loving and powerful God is in control!

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”  Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV

Looking to Him, and with much love and prayers for you all,

March 2020 Letter re: Events Postponed Due to Coronavirus


Friday, March 20, 2020  (This letter was originally transmitted via email)

To:  Women in the Churches in the Presbytery of the Mississippi Valley

Re:  Postponement of Presbytery Women’s Ministry Events

Hello Again, Sweet Sisters!

Notices have been posted and shared, and many text messages sent.  So you are most likely already aware, but I wanted to make sure you know that all of our presbytery-wide women’s ministry events are being postponed for now, in light of the recent news of the Coronavirus and the need for social distancing.  Hopefully, with most people staying at home and away from gatherings, things will be better sooner than if we didn’t heed these precautionary measures.  This is such an unusual time in our lives!  I’m so thankful that we can trust our ever-faithful God to be with us and lead us through the unknown days ahead.

We will miss getting together for Coffee & Connection at Wynndale March 21st and also the Lunch Bunch that was scheduled for later this month, the 31st.   Also, the regional conference that was going to be held in Gulfport on March 28th is postponed until later this year.

Please pray for one another and for our pastors and churches all around the world!  And remember to check the blogsite and/or Facebook group page for news and updates.  This is the best way for you to find out what is happening in Presbytery women’s ministry.

Here is the blogsite address:  www.msvalleywomensministry.blogspot.com
The name of our Facebook group is “MS Valley Women’s Ministry”.   Please join us there!

Blessings to you all.  May this be a time of drawing closer to the Lord.

With Love In Christ, Always,

Shelli Robison                                               
Women’s Ministry Coordinator
Presbytery of the Mississippi Valley

CHANGE OF PLANS! We will NOT meet for Coffee & Connection in the month of March. So sorry...

CHANGE OF PLANS...as in NO plans now for the March 21st Coffee & Connection.  We will NOT meet at Wynndale during the month of March...this C&C is now being POSTPONED indefinitely.

After further discussions and advisement from men of our Presbytery, we have unanimously decided that we POSTPONE the Coffee & Connection at Wynndale.  We would rather take precautionary measures to prevent the possible sharing of any virus, and we will make plans to get together on some later date at Wynndale.  We will miss you this time!  And we will let you know the new date whenever it is rescheduled.

Also, will you please SHARE this announcement with women in your church?  And please pray for our sisters and sister churches!
