“Why Do You Believe That?” by Mary Jo Sharp
How confident do you feel in talking about matters of faith? Do you wish you could express your beliefs with more effectiveness? Join Mary Jo in a practical seven-session study and gain understanding and skill to share Jesus effectively with others, and you’ll better understand your own faith. Answer your doubts, build your confidence, and start changing lives.

“Stronger” by Angela Thomas
Through biblical teaching and practical daily application, Stronger will help you realize you do not have to live in weakness.God is stronger than every struggle you will ever face. Because of Jesus Christ, your life has been hidden in Him, made alive in Him, filled in Him, brought near to God in Him, and blessed with every spiritual blessing in Him. (Note: 20 somethings group available at Plymouth PM)

“One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp (MP3-Mothers Group)
In this study, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God’s gifts. It’s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we’ve always wanted… a life we can take, give thanks for and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved—by God.

Women’s Community Groups

We also have groups that meet in our surrounding communities. Take this link to Find A Group, choose your preferences and see the groups available to you.

 

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)

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).
