Greetings Concerned Women for America of Arkansas friends!
My name is Lynda Fulmer, I am the Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Arkansas Prayer/Action Chapter Leader of the Fort Smith area. I have lead the Fort Smith chapter for over three years now and have found it to be one of the top joys of my life as together we learn about the issues, pray and take action. We have had an impact in our local area to the glory of God.
I am writing to you today to consider how you, as I have, can follow one of the two greatest commands of our Lord Jesus Christ, by loving your neighbor as yourself through the ministry of CWA of Arkansas.
Think about it, what does it mean to be a Christian? It means, of course, to love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40). In church, Women’s Bible studies and through Christian books, we often take in information about loving God. This is wonderful, and it should be our #1 priority, but let me talk to you right now about #2, how you can love your neighbor through the ministry of CWA of Arkansas.
Consider making a difference in the lives of others in 2017 on the issues that are important to you – sanctity of life, defense of the family, education, religious liberty, sexual exploitation, support for Israel, and national sovereignty. Every one of these issues affects the life, liberty and happiness of our neighbor. Join the team; we’ll do it together. You are needed!
Here are a handful of opportunities for involvement. Whether you have a lot of time or just a little, there is a place for you. Prayerfully read through this list.
- Continue responding to CWA e-alerts and forward them on to like-minded friends, family and pastors. It is your prayers and action that make all the difference.
- If you live in the Fort Smith area, attend our next meeting. We would love to have you! We meet on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Contact me through the information below for more information.
- Consider being a Prayer/Action Chapter Leader. A Prayer/Action Chapter Leader plans and oversees monthly Prayer/Action Chapter meetings in a church, neighborhood or community. The emphasis is threefold: pray, educate and act. Each new leader receives a manual and over-the-phone training. Plus, CWA provides a monthly Prayer/Action Newsletter that includes an inspirational piece, legislative updates, action items, prayer, and praises. The newsletter is designed for use as a guide for the monthly meetings.
- Partner with CWA of Arkansas by giving a tax-deductible gift towards the work of CWA of Arkansas. We are run by all volunteers. Therefore, all contributions go straight to the work at hand within the state. Any amount is appreciated. Contribute online or send a check to the national office at Concerned Women for America, P.O. Box 34300, Washington, D.C. 20043. Write the check out to “Concerned Women for America.” Be sure to put “CWA of Arkansas” on the memo line and include a note that says you would like the funds to be applied to the work of CWA of Arkansas.
The mindset used to be: “Is it okay for Christians to be involved in public policy?” The question now should be: “Is okay for Christians not to be involved in public policy?” If we don’t as believers, who will?
I look forward to hearing from you!
Prayer/Action Chapter Leader – Fort Smith
