The Women of Excellence is the foundation of the Women”s Ministry at Simon Temple A.M.E. Zion Church. The ministry began in August of 2004 with a threefold purpose:
Promoting spiritual growth, and
Building long-lasting, healthy relationships
The mission of the Women of Excellence (W.O.E.) is to reach women of all ages and from all walks of life with the goal of encouraging one another, while fostering a sense of sisterhood and accountability among the women of God. This mission is accomplished by creating an atmosphere of oneness, acceptance and love, so that no woman leaves Simon Temple feeling alone or unloved.
Every woman who is a member of Simon Temple is a member of the W.O.E. and is encouraged to participate in all W.O.E. activities. These activities, which include quarterly meetings and a yearly women”s retreat, are coordinated by The W.O.E. Planning Committee. Additionally, all Simon Temple women are encouraged to participate in one or more of the ministry branches that have grown from the W.O.E. tree. These branches provide opportunities to teach, learn, pray, fellowship, network, and love one another.
