I read a card yesterday: “I love you so much, I’d lay on a bee for you.” Isn’t that a funny thought? That’s some sacrificial love for you.
If any of you saw the Registration Table on Sunday morning between services, you may have been wondering what all the buzz was about! Women were swarming and it was awesome!
With so much going on this time of year, I want to offer a closer look at all the exciting things going on with Grace Women this season...I don’t want you to miss a thing!
Just Women Night!
We have a major seasonal kick-off event coming up soon, Friday night, February 8: JUST WOMEN NIGHT! This is our semi-annual time together as women, and offers connection opportunities as well as encouragement and fun for women of all ages. This year we are focusing more on the fellowship and less on the program, but to be sure – there is going to be a message designed for your woman heart! There will be food, talk time, prizes, laughter and more! Our prayer is that we all go home with full hearts (and bellies) so that others notice! (Well, not the bellies!) Register now at gfcnow.com/justwomen or in the lobby Sunday!
Girlfriends Living Out Worship (GLOW)
Our friends at Celebration Church are hosting Lysa TerKeurst, Jennifer Rothschild and others April 19th and 20th! We encourage you to go with friends from GFC, so get tickets now before they sell out! Tickets are $20 and are available as a courtesy with me on Sunday in the lobby, or contact me to make other arrangements!
Ladies' Conference at Milligan College
We aren't planning anything special for this, but wanted to share this with you! Lisa Harper is speaking on February 23. You can call 423.461.8710 for more information on tickets! Early bird pricing ends after February 1.
You have the hunger for more of God’s Word, and for fellowship with other women, but don’t know where to start? Why not join a womens’ study group? We love seeing women connect at GFC or in homes around God’s Word, so we do what we can to see that happen!
This season we have 3 groups open for registration:
- “Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl” by Lysa TerKeurst.
Meets at GFC 9:15-11:15, is $9 and childcare is available upon registration.
- “5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Son” by Vicki Courtney.
Meets at GFC 9:15-11:15, is $12 and childcare is available upon registration.
- Study on 1 Peter – Discovering the hope God gives us through His Word for hurtful times!
Meets at the leader’s home, is FREE but childcare is not available.
Look online for more information, or stop by the Registration Table on Sunday to learn more!
FOR MOM’S (and Mom’s-to-be) ESPECIALLY...
Mom-to-Mom Outreach (M2O)
Our ministry to mom’s of young ones is exceptional, and if you have a child between the ages of 0-5, you will be glad you found this fellowship! Mom-to-Mom Outreach (M2O), meets monthly at GFC with their next meeting on February 14th! Childcare is provided, but please register online today!
If you are expecting a baby, or are the mother of older children and want to encourage an expectant mother – Gracemothers is designed for you both! We love celebrating life at GFC, and this is one way we can celebrate and support women in a time of life that offers unique challenges! We can match you together for the season to ensure every expectant mom has encouragement as the precious child grows and enters this world well-loved! Contact us for more details at gfcnow.com/gracemothers!
At the end of a long day, or week or MONTH, it’s important to have a place where you can go and lay down all the burdens of your day in a safe and accepting place and just cut loose! AMEN! We’d like to offer that on Tuesday nights at GFC starting February 12th where you can get your Zumba on! Many women have said they felt so encouraged in their souls after our time together (not just their bodies)! We seek to honor God in everything, and it’s an amazing thing to simply enjoy the body God has given you – even if it isn’t what you’d like it to be today. Come try it this season!
If that’s cutting it too loose for you, bring friends and play a card or board game outside the Zumba room or meet friends to walk inside or outside to get that heart rate up! See more here today, but don’t worry about registration – just come!
Let’s see, is that all the buzz? There’s always something going on...and more is coming soon – you’ll find it out first if you’re at Just Women Night! Sign up today! (No bees were injured in the posting of this blog.)
