Leading women in a wider and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Jesus replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself.

Date: Thursday, September 12
Time: 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Place: Third Floor Classroom: S303
Book Fee: $15 (Scholarships available)
Every life gets messy at times. Sometimes these messes are literal, but sometimes they are intangible messes such as illness, conflict, depression, abuse, bankruptcy, divorce and job loss.
Come dig into the lives of biblical heroes who were messy people just like us but who were used by God in powerful ways. As we examine these messy stories, we will learn how God can use broken people, restore damaged hearts and relationships, and help us deal with the hard moments of life. In the hands of God, our messes can become His masterpieces!

Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World by Max Lucado
Do you feel weighed down with worry? Does the road you’re traveling loom large with mountains to cross, obstacles to avoid, and hairpin curves to navigate? Could you use some calm? Philippians 4:6-7 is the most underlined passage in the Bible. According to this promise, anxiety comes with life, but it doesn’t have to dominate your life. With God as your helper and this verse at your side, you can sleep better tonight and smile more tomorrow. You can discover a life that is characterized by calm and develop tools for facing the onslaughts of anxiety. Let’s invite God to reframe the way we face our fears and with the war on worry. By his power we will “be anxious for nothing” and experience the “peace of God, which surpasses all understanding.”
