Aug 28 & Sept 17: New studies begin for both our Wednesday morning and Tuesday evening Women's Bible Studies.
Wednesday mornings (9-11 am) beginning August 28: We will be starting a 6-week study, Defiant Joy, by Candace Payne.
Do you feel tempted to give up on your dreams? Joy stays the course. Do your knees knock when thinking about the future? Joy hopes for what can be. Do you feel unseen and unnoticed? Joy is content whether backstage or center stage. Do you feel crushed under the weight of regret? Joy loves you enough to weep with you, but also enough to help you move on.
Join Candace to learn about the gift God has given us all to lead us into the full life you were always meant to live. All you need to do is answer yes when joy, who Candace personifies as a friend, calls you to come and play. When life punches you in the gut, it can be difficult to muster a smile--much less a laugh. But Candace believes we need to take off our masks and re-discover the simple joys of life. With humor and power, wit and wisdom, Candace lights the way forward to a life that is free indeed.
We will be meeting in the Fellowship hall and all women of the congregation and community are invited to attend. Please feel free to invite a friend and join us for this study. Study guides will be available for purchase at the first session.
Please let Joann Berggren know (contact information available in the August newsletter) if you have any questions, would like to attend, and if you would like a study guide.

She leads us to the biblical answer to stress and imbalance: living a Spirit-filled and Christ-centered life. Using a wheel as a metaphor for the journey, she identifies barriers to balanced living and explores what the Bible teaches about Christ-centered living,
