TUESDAYS, JULY 15 – AUGUST 19 (We are not meeting Aug 5.)
AM 9:30-11:30 / PM 6:30-8:30
 

“Undaunted” by Christine Caine
Christine Caine offers life-transforming insights about how not only to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience, but also to actually grow from those experiences and be equipped and empowered to help others.

Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage.

Christine’s personal stories inspire readers to hear their named called, just as Christine heard her own- “You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chose.” – to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. Part inspiration tale, part manifesto to stir readers to lives of adventure. Undaunted shows the way with spiritual wisdom and insight.

Women’s Community Groups

We also have groups that meet in our surrounding communities. Groups are launched at Connection Events in the Fall, Winter & Spring. Can’t wait for the next one? Contact Us!

 

MOTHER’S OF PRESCHOOLERS

We welcome moms of preschool children… urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms… all moms who share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be!

Moms live in messes. The toys, crumbs, and spit-up are their natural surroundings. Moms often feel like a mess. They are exhausted, under-showered, and hormonal. Their past and present circumstances and decisions can leave them feeling inadequate for God’s love and purposes.

A Beautiful Mess — reminds moms that beauty can come out of their difficult spots. The grime of mothering young children brings the beauty of motherhood. The bruises of life can bring God’s redemption. Embrace Your Story — reminds moms that their past, present and future can be used for good. God knows where each of us has been, where we are today and has set in motion where we are headed. Join our group as we embrace our stories together!

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. ” Ephesians 2:10 (New Living Translation)

HOMESCHOOL CONNECTION

Looking for a place to connect with other home school families?
Whether you’re new to homeschooling, thinking of homeschooling or a seasoned veteran, this is the place for you!  One of our main goals is to build authentic relationships with one another as we journey down the home school path. So, join us as we meet for monthly educational/social outings and get to know each other along the way.

Events – Our monthly trips are on the second Wednesday of the month September – May. On occasion we may need to schedule a trip on a different date. Please be sure to note the date listed. This schedule may change on occasion. Check back often for the most up-to-date information.

GRACE FULL QUILTS

We offer comfort to those in need by gifting them with a hand crafted quilt. Our purpose is to enjoy community as we quilt together, pray over each of our projects and encourage each other to grow stronger in our faith.

Do you have scraps of leftover fabric stuffed in drawers, spilling out of boxes, or tucked in your sewing box? Now you can give them a second life while helping others. Some of our quilts have been gifted to our missionaries, Katrina victims, service men overseas and duffel bag projects for children in Foster Care.

Novices and experts are welcomed. Even non-sewers are welcome to learn as they go! We also need volunteers to keep track of inventory, take pictures, cut, iron, deliver quilts, and pray.

KNITTY CHICKS

Interested in knitting or crocheting? We have donated yarn and outreach projects so you can knit or crochet to your heart’s content without damaging your budget. We currently are making preemie hats, booties, blankets, and issolet covers for Hutzel Hospital, as well as mittens for City Mission, decorative scarves for the duffel bag project, and 8” squares for afghans going to Africa.

We pray for others as we make our projects and attach Bible verses to each item made. If you want to use your gifts to gift others in need, this may be the group for you. It’s hard to believe that doing outreach work can be so much fun. Women of all ages and all skill levels welcome. Join us on new projects or even bring your own.

 

GRACEFULL QUILTS and KNITTY CHICKS meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, 7-9p. There is no fee for these classes (childcare is not available).
