Ladies Meeting: Anchors Aweigh

Idea taken from Angie Gaddis booklet Ladies Ministry Ideas

Theme Verse: Hebrews 12:1b, “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us…”

Overview: The purpose of a ship’s voyage is to reach a destination with cargo and passengers. To “weigh anchor” is to bring anchor up, free of the water and the sea bottom and aboard the ship, in preparation for departure. “Anchors Aweigh!” is a report to the sea captain that the anchor has been raised and the ship is ready to set sail. The main idea behind the theme is to challenge the ladies to lay aside or put off anything that would keep them from doing what God has purposed for them to do and getting do where He wants them to be (whether it be a sin or a weight).
