A woman of faith and unquenchable zeal...
Charmaine's is employed as a dental assistant and has raised two adult boys, who are also active in the church. Her life experience has equipped her to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and compassionate toward people. She seeks to be in alignment with the will of God in every respect and endeavors to help others experience and have a growing relationship with God.
Charmaine is also one of the most creative and gifted people I know, kind hearted, humorous and able to think deeply about the scripture. Her vision for what the Women's Fellowship can be is something I pray every woman would embrace.
Charmaine Walker is the President of the Women's Auxiliary.

1 Peter 3:3-4
“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” (NLT)
Question: Does my life reflect the holiness of God, and do I desire to see others experience God at a deep level in their own lives?
I’ve discovered that praying with others enriches the whole prayer time, because each woman brings to the prayer her listening heart verbalized. God speaks uniquely and personally to each one of us and the literal concert of prayer that results from sharing the conversation with God is breathtaking in its harmonies and nuances. I can’t do that alone.
Our LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST hears the prayers of the righteous (Proverbs 15:29). If two of them agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, our LORD JESUS CHRIST will do it for them. For where two or three are gathered together in HIS name, HE is in the midst of them. Matthew 18:19-20
This is the confidence that the saved people have in HIM, that if they ask anything according to HIS will, HE hears them. Praise The Lord hallelujah!
A Foot Bath devotional by Anne Graham Lotz
"A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean. . . ."
- John 13:10, NIV
In Jesus’ day the people went to common baths, similar to a public swimming pool, where they would bathe all over. However, as soon as they left the bath and walked along the streets, their feet would get dirty again. So when they arrived at their homes, it was not necessary to have a complete bath. They only needed to wash their feet of the dust and dirt they had picked up along the way.
Jesus was explaining to Peter that once you and I have been to the cross for our complete “bath,” we are clean. All of our sin – past, present, future, small, medium, large – is washed away by the blood of Jesus and we are totally, completely, permanently forgiven! Praise God! But we still sin! Our feet get dirty again! So every day we come back to the cross, not for forgiveness since we are already forgiven, but to confess our sin and be cleansed that we might maintain a right fellowship with God and with others and ourselves. Do you need a foot bath?

Book of the Month
Enlightening and inspiring. Readable and practical. A much needed tool for ministry to women in the local church that will be used in seminaries, colleges, and churches to teach women the importance of women leading women. It's an invaluable resource. I highly recommend it.

Cell group Faithfulness is in charge of prayer on the fourth sabbath in the month of August.
Faithfulness. A faithful person is one with real integrity. He or she is someone others can look to as an example, and someone who is truly devoted to others and to Christ. Our natural self always wants to be in charge, but Spirit-controlled faithfulness is evident in the life of a person who seeks good for others and glory for God.
Question: Are there areas of hypocrisy and indifference toward others in my life, or is my life characterized by faith in Christ and faithfulness to those around me?
Faithfulness is the "gluing" fruit that will preserve our faith and the other characters of the Spirit and identify God's will so we can be dependable and trusting to God and others.
The Power of a Praying Woman
While the scripture places a high premium on male leadership; history has been paved with the prayers of godly women. It is probably safe to say that if it were not for the prayers of those mothers and grandmothers, the disintegration of the family would be far worse and the frayed fabric of society would be completely undone. When you fight for your marriages and the salvation of your children, you'll begin to recognize that the battle is truly won on your knees. Prayer is a force to be reckoned with.
