What is Kingdom Builders?

Kingdom Builders is a new once-a-month prayer group for women. It will be held at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Fort Wayne, IN. We will focus on prayer, scripture, and the sacraments as a foundation. However, we will also incorporate other concerns that the Holy Spirit lays upon our female heart – physical health, financial stability, family dynamics, holy friendships, good parenting, strong marriages, and more. These are ALL part of what make up the genius of God’s beautiful design of us and we want to honor Jesus in all we do. We will have fellowship, faith sharing, and teaching at the Life Center and then we will walk over to the Church for Eucharistic Adoration. The Eucharist will be exposed and we will lift our hearts and voices to praise Jesus through song and then we will allow Jesus to simply love us in silence. Ladies . . . this is not just another meeting on your ‘to-do’ list.

As I reflected back upon my own journey I could see the times where I lacked peace and joy – my desires were also disordered. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,and all these things will be given you besides.” Matthew 6:33
