Who We Are
In January 2001, Sisters In Faith began as a small day retreat for 75 women and has grown to welcome 400 women from over 150 churches. Not simply a women's event, we are an intentional ministry to women. It is our prayer that each guest will be able to remove themselves from their day-to-day activities and become refreshed from God's Word. We are excited that so many women attend our events, but more than that, we are energized to join with girlfriends under one roof for one day – worshipping and sharing the faith together.
The Manorwood Café began in the Fall of 2009 as a small home group but as we have grown, we now meet weekly at Montgomery United Methodist Church in Damascus, Maryland. We have room for you! Our group is a safe place where women are encouraged to be who they really are. There are no masks allowed...come as you are. Within the circles of women, you will find acceptance, authenticity, affirmation and accountability. We are a group of Christ-followers who are committed to applying God's Word to our lives in order to experience growth and change. We would love for you to join in.
Do you dream of a having a relevant women’s ministry that really impacts the lives of the women in your church and beyond? Are you ready to be challenged to look at ministry with fresh eyes and a unique perspective? Step Up Coaching for Women In Ministry can help you.
Co-founders of Sisters In Faith Ministries, Laura Acuña and Donna Bowles have been women's ministry leaders together for over 18 years in both the church and the community. Their church home is Damascus Road Community Church in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Their desire is to pass on the lessons learned to other women in ministry – both the hits and the misses! From team building to retreat planning, starting a ministry from scratch or taking a successful ministry to the next level, their deepest belief is that women need women. So... is it time to STEP UP?
