Congregational Dinner to encourage women in your church

This dinner idea is based on the Titus 2 teaching that older women are to teach younger women. It has also been called “Silver Threads Amongst the Gold”. The church in which it was developed found it very successful. Many women enjoyed learning from other women and getting to know women from different age groups better. It was overall a very encouraging event that was repeated in subsequent years. The following links provide more information and the invitation used on one occasion, it was printed as a postcard style invitation and handed out personally to each woman in the church family.
