Flip Flops Women’s Ministry Theme
Summer is a great time for a women’s ministry get-together. It’s a great time for a laid back relaxing event. Flip Flops & Friends make a great theme for that. You can turn it into summer party mode if you want.
How about serving up something easy like summer salads or even just roast some marshmallows and make some S’mores? Easy does it for summer!

Flip Flops Event Concept
—Originally Posted June 4, 2014 as a “Flip Flops & Friends” women’s ministry theme
—Updated June 2020
The event themes on the website can be used for showers, parties, women’s ministry retreats and activities, or church functions. Each theme will have one or several possible spiritual applications. I give you lots of info and ideas—You pick just a few to enhance your event. More ideas can be used for showers and parties, but less is always more for ministry events.

Focus on fellowship and encouragement for long hot summer days.
Focus on anger (flipping your lid )
Focus on worry and anxieties (not flipping out when life get hard)
Focus on attitudes (flipping your attitude around)
Focus on moving past mistakes (everybody flops some times.)
