The God Who Sees You

Resource Packet

God sees us wandering in the “deserts” of our lives, in our pain of lost dreams and relationships, and in our shame when we have failed even ourselves. Nothing happens that God doesn’t notice. Our prayer is that you will see how closely God watches over you, that you will will pay attention to God at work in your life, and that you will keep your eyes focused on Him. The 2024 Women's Ministries Emphasis Day resource packet, The God Who Sees You, is written by Edith Ruiz-Espinoza, Inter-American Division Women's Ministries director. The packet contains a children's story, the sermon, "The God Who Sees You," and a workshop, "The Apple of His Eye."

Second Sabbath of June

Women's Ministries Emphasis Day

Women's Ministries Emphasis Day is on the Seventh-day Adventist Church's Calendar of Days and Events and falls on the second Sabbath each June. It is an opportunity for women to lead out in a worship service and a time to educate the church regarding the purposes of Women's Ministries. It is an ideal occasion to introduce your leaders and committee to the church family and to invite women who have not been involved to join.

The Women's Ministries leader should meet with the pastor at least six months prior to this day to discuss special plans for this Sabbath. This is a possible opportunity to plan a full day of activities including Sabbath School, the worship service, a fellowship dinner, and perhaps an afternoon program. The leader may also want to use this time to honor women in the congregation who have done something unusual or outstanding. Resources for this purpose are available through the Conference Women's Ministries director.

Please feel free to edit and translate the resource packet. We encourage you to adapt it according to your division’s needs, including the best Bible version for your use. You may print it and reproduce it if you'd like to share it with others. We encourage you to use it in your church's Women's Ministries Emphasis Day program.
