James, Jesus’ own brother, started out as a skeptic. See how one glimpse of the resurrected Savior turned an unbeliever into a disciple.
Topics include: joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.
Sign-up in the foyer on Sunday mornings or contact Lisa Bickle and pre-order your (optional) homework guide for $20.
WOMEN’S CONNECT EVENTS
These events will pop up this year, as WE ALL create them! Let’s host a variety of opportunities for women of all ages to connect with others who have similar interests.
We believe in the call to relationship with other women, for the purpose of journeying together to grow in our faith. Whether its a planned time of study or prayer together, or just meeting for coffee to be reminded of God’s love and promises when our circumstances seem to draw us away from that. To engage in these deeper friendships, and maybe be open to a mentoring relationship even, we may need a chance to get to know some gals! So what would you say YES to? A crafty night? a Book Club? an IF:Table? A concert, sushi, a baseball game?
Let this be the year we say yes to deeper connection and even mentoring, and no to the things that keep us from it. Invite & say ‘yes’…
See the calendar for your next opportunity, as they pop up.
Sarah Knight, our Children’s Ministry Director, has a real heart for young moms (being one herself too!). We’ve long recognized that many of you, moms of all ages, would love a night out *without kiddos* to connect and just have some fun.
To register sign up at the Ministry Desk in the church foyer, or email Sarah

Bible study for women, Sunday mornings before service. Join us anytime as we simply open God’s Word together each week and see what He would have us glean from it.
Current Study: Exodus
Just drop in. No need to sign up. Bring a friend!
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.
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.
