September 7th – The Gathering class is starting back!  The class will meet on Wednesday nights in the Reception Room at 6:30pm and will start with a 7-week series called “Find Your People” by Jennie Allen.  CLICK HERE to watch a trailer for the series. 

LikeWise Connection Groups

Starting in September, you can be a part of a new program called LikeWise Connections.  “Likewise” means “in the same way, similarly, in a like manner”.  When we connect to each other at a deep level, we discover that we have similar dreams, goals, pain and struggles. These groups are designed to give us intentional opportunities to connect with each other and build deeper relationships. 

HOW DOES IT WORK – Once you sign up, you will be put in a group with 4-5 other women.  One person in the group will be designated as the “coordinator”.  The coordinator is NOT in charge of hosting each month.  She will just help the group decide when and where they want to meet each month.  Your group may meet for a meal at a member’s home, dessert on a member’s porch, coffee in a quiet corner of your favorite coffee shop, etc.  You can meet at the same place each month, or rotate to different homes, or restaurants. The emphasis of the group is on the connections made through conversation, not the location and/or food.  The groups will meet once a month from September 2022 to May, 2023 (December can be hard, so that month is optional.) 

Each month, the coordinator of each group will receive 4 questions from IF:Table to encourage deeper conversations.  IF: Table is a tool designed to be the simplest way to cut through the small talk and start building the relationships that God wants us to have. You may get through all four questions, or you may only get through one or two questions, depending on how the Holy Spirit is leading the group that month.

We know it can be intimidating to be put in a group of ladies you may not know and then try to have meaningful conversations.  SO – if you want to join a group with a friend, when you each sign up, list that friend’s name and we will put you both in the same group. (Please be sure you both put each other’s name on your forms.)

On Thursday, September 29th, we will have a dinner at church where you will meet the other ladies in your group and discuss your first set of questions.

CLICK HERE for the form link.  The deadline to sign up is Sept 21st

Tuesday Morning ladies Bible Class will begin a new study on tomorrow, September 20th from 10:00-11:00am, They are using the book The Barnabas Factor: Realize Your Encouragement Potential, by Dr. Aubrey Johnson. Co-facilitators for the class are Jane Gough, Janet Moss and Linda Shelton.

Thursday Morning Bible Study

We invite you to join the Thursday morning ladies’ Bible class this fall.  We are excited to be using Kelly Minter’s seven-week study of Nehemiah, described below:

Nehemiah’s heart broke so deeply for the suffering Jews that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to restore their desolate community.  Nehemiah will inspire you to listen to what God has put in your heart to do. Let God break your heart for the hurting, because He often uses a breaking heart to restore the broken.

Once again, we will be offering a children’s class so that our young mothers are able to participate in the study.  The series will begin on Thursday, September 22nd.  Refreshments will be available at 9:30 a.m., and class will start at 9:45.  CLICK HERE to register.

We look forward to you joining us for a special time of Bible study and fellowship.
