WOMEN

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.

Matthew 22:37-38

Identity Theft: Reclaiming the Truth of Who We Are in Christ

Who am I? It’s a question we all ask ourselves at some point. Depending on the season we focus our identity on our job performance, marital status, personality type, or social network, among other options. Explore how knowing who we are in Christ changes every aspect of our lives.

Joshua:  Winning the Worry Battle by Barb Roose 

Have you ever tried to fight worry with faith and felt you were losing the battle?  Through this study of the Book of Joshua, we will learn how Joshua and the Israelites faced hostile enemies in the Promised Land and ultimately claimed God’s promised victory.  As we follow their bold, courageous footprints, we’ll discover that winning the worry battle requires more than having faith; it requires fighting in faith!  Together we’ll be equipped with biblical wisdom, encouragement, and practical tools that will enable us to overcome our daily worry struggles as well as the bigger battles of fear that we face.

Book Fee: $15

UNDER RECONSTRUCTION

This group of knitters/crocheters met in the Parlor on Wednesdays from 6-8pm through December, 2017. Their long-time leader/coordinator, Barb Beverly, has had to step down and so they are looking for someone to act as point person.  Fortunately, the group’s signature prayer shawls continue to be crafted at home by numerous volunteers.  The shawls are placed on a quilt rack just inside the office suite as they become available.  We are blessed to be able to continue offering prayer shawls and hopeful that our home-crafters will keep the supply coming.

Anyone interested in coordinating this group should contact Paula David, 757-689-1730.

Why would you want to get involved?  Here’s what our Knit Wits are saying :

  • Knit Wits has given me a whole new appreciation for “praying without ceasing” as we pray before, after, and silently as we craft regardless of where we are.
  • Knitting is a way of expressing my creative side as I select yarns and patterns.
  • Sharing in persons’ stories of pain and sadness and seeing their expressions as they receive their shawl has become a very precious blessing.
  • Knit Wits provides a purpose for my love of knitting & an outlet for items I knit in the form of a ministry to others.
  • Attending the meetings is a peaceful end to a busy day among other women who have become wonderful friends.

The vision of Knit Wits is to be the hands of Jesus:  “The yarn forms the stitches, the knitting forges the friendships, the craft links the generations and prayer weaves Christ’s love…thus our hands become Jesus’ hands.”

Their mission is to prayerfully knit or crochet items to comfort and warm others. Projects include prayer shawls for those experiencing joy or sadness and Lamb’s Wool Sweaters for children age infant to 5 years in developing countries.
