Still unclear on the “IF”? IF God is real (and we know He is!) then… let’s live like it! what difference does it make in my life? We’ll have some great questions to get us thinking while we eat… let’s talk honestly about Him, let’s share our doubts, fears, our stories, good & bad. Let’s cheer each other on to live in His promises, let’s >>

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer….they continued to meet together….they broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts… Acts 2:42-47
This summer, at home or away, take time (just 10 minutes/day!) – don’t miss the BEAUTY that is God’s gift and message to us!
Starting Monday, July 17th, we encourage you to discover with us, as we join our friends over at IF:Gathering. We will spend six weeks learning together, just 10 minutes/day, exploring God’s passion for beauty and the arts through their next “IF:Equip Study”, Reflections of God: The Theology of Beauty.
God is the Great Artist and the most creative Person in the universe. By fashioning us in His image, God has given humans the unique role of reflecting His character—including His beauty and creativity—to the world. Over the next six weeks, we will take our time exploring beauty. We’ll see that all beauty is rooted in God, was marred by the fall, and is expressed most fully in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Beauty is being restored in our world through God and His image bearers, and it will be fully restored in the new heaven and the new earth when Christ returns. We will see clearly from Scripture that Christians are to lead the charge in restoring beauty however we can, wherever we can, as often as we can, so we can reflect the image of our Creator to a world in desperate need of His beauty and goodness. Through this study we pray that God will show you that all people are creative people, that we can all engage in the arts, and that Christians actively do so for the glory of God and the good of others.

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.
New friends are more than welcome to join us in the fun as we meet monthly, alternating weekend and weekday opportunities, 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
