Staying Connected

Sermon by Pastor Rhovonda (06/27/21)

In chapter 15 of St. John, Jesus shares truth with His disciples. His hour had come and soon He would be crucified. Jesus wants His disciples to know the importance of abiding in the Savior. Jesus wants His disciples to understand that separated from the Master and trying to do life without God will be impossible. Click below to watch Pastor Rhovonda's sermon titled, Staying Connected.

Encourage. Empower. Impact.

1.    We gather to encourage and remind one another who we are in Christ and how much He loves us. (Psalm 139; Philippians 4:4-9; John 3:16)

2.    We gather to empower one another with the Word of God and His promises. (Psalm 119 and 91; Hebrews 4:12). We share testimonies from women who may have experienced similar challenges but made it to empower others to trust God. (Revelation 12; Jeremiah 29:11; Proverbs 3:5-8)

3.    We gather to share tools, strategies, tips, and principles that are Bible-based for motivating one another to impact those around us. (Ephesians 6:10-20; Matthew 28:18-20)

Martha & Mary Ministries, Walking in Freedom! (M3) is driven by our passion for the hurting and a desire to see every woman come into the knowledge of her true worth and full potential, which can only be found in our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The Apostle John writes, "Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit." (3 John. 1:2 NLT). He also records in the Gospel, "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." and "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." (John 8:32,36 NIV). These are our foundational scriptures for M3, and these are our prayers. 

So as we embark on another season, chapter, and year (M3 turns 11 years old in August), we want to continue encouraging you. Our prayer is that you will apply every Word of God to your life and that you will live a life that is free in Jesus. Free indeed! 

Be encouraged to keep your eyes on God as He continues to bless you with His amazing grace and love.

Let's walk in freedom together!

Your sis,


We are driven by our passion to encourage the hurting and a desire to see every woman come into the full knowledge of her true worth and potential, which can only be found in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
