Missionary Woman… Off the Record

We will be exploring the secret life of the missionary woman. Based on my own survey of current missionaries, we’ll unmask who this woman really is, what she wants us to know, and how we can best encourage her.

It’s Time for a Marriage Checkup

As wives, our days are often filled with either a blur of activity or a pattern of sameness. It’s easy to assume our marriages are fine–or at least as good as could be expected. But when was the last time we paused for a few moments to evaluate and look for ways to improve? If you are ready for encouragement to glorify God more in your marriage, join me for a checkup.

A Glimpse Of Heaven

“Heaven! It’s not just something I sing about and talk about. I’m really, really, really going to be there one day!” Does this make your brain almost spasm? What do we know about our eternal home? What will we do? Will we know each other? Come dig into the Scriptures and find out about this wonderful place reserved for the child of God.

Feeding Your Soul

Our days as women are busy with multiple obligations: family, work, ministries, housework, etc. The lists of meaningful obligations are lengthy! But stopping and taking intentional time for refreshing our souls with truths in and through Scriptures is vital to help us through our busy days.

I Changed My Mind!

“I changed my mind!” We often use this phrase when shopping or planning a menu! But did you know you actually CAN change your mind, the “default setting” through which you respond to each situation and relationship? Believers in Jesus Christ don’t have to continue to be negative, anxious, angry or critical. Carole will share truth about transforming your thoughts with candor and humor.

Which Pew is Mine?

Being single can be hard; unfortunately, being single at church can be harder. In this session, we will consider the blessings and challenges of being single, especially as part of the church, and consider ways that the church can care for and benefit from its single members.

Get Out of Your Christian Bubble

The last words our Lord spoke on earth was to His disciples: Go! He wants each of His disciples to share the gospel with people within her personal sphere of influence. Family. Friends. Neighbors. Co-Workers. But believers often are so isolated from unbelievers that they have few natural opportunities to speak and live the gospel. Carole will share ideas and testimonies of ways we really CAN share the good news with people who will live eternally somewhere.

A Cup of Cold Water. . . or a Hot Dish!

Sometimes the best way to shine a light into a dark world or show love to a hurting heart is through the gift of food and hospitality.  Andrea will share her heart, a few helpful tips, and some favorite tried-and-true recipes that will help you delight in serving Jesus by serving others.

The Woman at the Well

Broken by rejection, guilt-ridden by sin, defenses up, dissatisfied with life, worn down and giving up—yet actually religious. Sounds like many women—perhaps many found at a ladies’ Bible retreat. Jesus took the time and effort to speak with such a woman over 2000 years ago. His words brought light and hope to her sad world. Come watch her heart move from cold and dark to spreading the light of truth!
