“I want to talk about my faith, but I don’t know how – and I don’t have all the answers.”
“I’m afraid of coming off as pushy, judgemental, or hypocritical.”
“When I tried to bring up Jesus, I made the relationship awkward.”
If you’ve ever felt uncomfortable talking about your faith with people who believe differently – you’re not alone. But it is possible to engage in open and honest spiritual conversations … without awkwardness! Jesus did this effectively, and when you learn from him, so can you.
When you look at the life and ministry of Jesus, you’ll see nine different ways in which he engaged with people. These practices, or “arts”, are skills you can learn that will naturally deepen your connection with others. When spiritual conversations become an everyday reality, you’ll have a front-row seat as God changes people’s lives.

We recommend two great apps for personal daily study – to do on your own or connect with a friend and discuss what you’ve learned through the week.
The first app is “Read Scripture” and it leads you through the bible in a year, bringing the whole story of Jesus together with theme videos and more to illustrate and teach as you go – we love it!
The second app is “IFGathering”. This one offers various study series, whether it’s book studies or topical. Each day includes scripture, blog and brief video discussion. There is also an online community to share insights, through the app. Past studies are always available and the current study is:

In the spring of 2017, we began to partner with a global missions opportunity called Days for Girls. They are a non-profit organization that has a mandate to see all women around the world have the opportunity to have clean feminine hygiene products available to them so that they aren’t either ostracized from their communities or made to miss school every month. We are making feminine hygiene kits that include reusable pads and cleaning supplies .
OUR GOAL: to complete 100 kits in the next year.
Adele Webb leads our group as they meet monthly, alternating Thursday afternoons and Saturdays. New friends are more than welcome to join us in the fun as we meet to make these kits together, in assembly line fashion. Even if you can’t sew, there are lots of ways to help!
Items you can bring if you have them:
100% cotton fabrics
Sewing machine/extension cord
Rotary cutter with mat
Join Gail and the others as we soak in the Father’s presence (enjoying His love!) and go to prayer together. If you need prayer anytime and you want to share your need or would like one of us to meet you there, please let us know.
