We are thankful for God's Provisions!

Fall is a wonderful time. Delectable smells, warm fires, hot apple cider, and a season to remember how thankful we are for everything God provided through the last year. How do we not forget God's provisions? Pay attention to the details! Write down the details throughout the year and keep them in a jar. During this season, pull them out and remember God's provision from the past year.

Don't forget! 2010 Women's Retreat is coming up! March 5-7. Agate Beach Inn.
Recipe for Change. Change your thinking, change your life!

What a wonderful time of Worship! Thank you to the team that leads us each month!

A prayer of Thanksgiving.

Karin Penn introducing her mom. As always....funny! At the same time, a sweet perspective on Julie McGinty.

Julie sharing with us from the Word and her life. Here are just a few quotes from the evening.
" Our faulty memory causes us to forget God's provisions. God does not forget! How do we not forget God's provisions? Pay attention to the details! "

Make sure to set aside the date for our next Ladies' Night Out! December 14, 2009 6:45 pm. You won't want to miss it!

October's Ladies' Night Out.

What a wonderful evening this was..... from the very cute decorations, which in reality, turned out to be many "Beavers" vs "Ducks" tables...
to excersizing with Francel, and we didn't even break a sweat!.....

we heard wonderful testimonies of God's faithfulness throughout the evening during "Conversations with Angie". First up was Andrea Pruett's testimony of God's faithfulness in her life....
we enjoyed sweet snacks and even sweeter conversations with friends old and new.....

there were opportunites for us to recall God's faithfulness in our own lives.....

to be shared at next month's Ladies' Night Out....come back, you won't want to miss it!.....

there were more "Converstations with Angie". Beth Bartruff shared of God's faithfulness through health issues, job changes and changes in life's expectations...

and finally the evening wrapped up with a great worship time with our sisters in Christ, praising our Great God for His faithfulness to us.
God Is Faithful, We CAN Praise Him!!!!

Just a quick, brief description of the Women's Discipleship classes.

John: A year-long study in the book of John provides an opportunity to know and understand who you are in Christ.

Galatians: A year-long study of the book of Galatians provides the opportunity to grow in your understanding of the freedom that you have in Christ and what it means to live by the power of the Holy Spirit.

James: A year-long study in the book of James provides an opportunity to learn what true faith looks like in a believer’s everyday life.

Reflections: A year-long study of the characteristics of a godly woman that are listed in Titus 2:3-5. This class provides the opportunity to understand God’s design and purpose for women and to apply those truths in your home and family.
