Women’s Groups

 
 
 
We meet as a group of women for the purpose of reading a book together. 
The bonus outcome is that we become friends and share our own life stories as they relate to the current author’s story.  
Now is a great time to jump in and join us. 
Wednesday Mornings: 10:30—NOON  Faith’s Fireside Room
Beginning on September 19th  SIX weeks

3:16 The Numbers of Hope by Max Lucado Best-selling author Lucado leads you through a word-by-word study of John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son. . . .” It’s the passage that he calls the “Hope diamond”  of Scripture. If you know nothing of the Bible, start here. If you know everything in the Bible, return here. We all need the reminder. The heart of the human  problem is the heart of the human. And God’s treatment is prescribed in John 3:16: This book includes a 40 day devotional guide. Next Book (t.b.d) begins on (or about) November 7th  Questions: contact Mary Toufar by EMAIL

 
 
 
 

Are you a 20-40-something aged WOMAN wanting AUTHENTIC  conversation about faith, DOUBT, marriage, PARENTING, or the meaning of LIFE?    Come build real friendships here and find a quick-start way to grow in your faith journey.   PLEASE join Pastor Christine, Tiffany Armstrong, Lynne Fredrickson, and Cadee Winnie as we launch this new women’s group this Fall, studying the book, “What is the Bible?” by Rob Bell.  Many of us feel clueless when it comes to the Bible.  We really haven’t paid much attention to it outside of church!  If you’ve ever wondered why we still bother reading such an ancient book or what to do with all the violence, racism, inconsistencies, or other cultural “relics” we find in Scripture, come join us for a fascinating discussion on Rob Bell’s engaging book, “What is the Bible:  How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories can Transform the Way You Think and Feel about Everything!”   No need to talk.  Just listen in!

Join us Thursday Mornings from 9:30-11:00am beginning September 20th to connect with God and each other.  Childcare available for $5/family with pre-registration.  Please contact Pastor Christine EMAIL or

If you are a mom looking to build Christian friendships, make connections, and deepen your spiritual growth – come join us for 

Mom’s on Mondays (MOM’s)

Beginning September 24th in the Fireside Room

  We will begin this fall with the book  –  The Road Back to You: An Ennegram Journey to Self-Discovery by Ian Cron and Suzanne Stabile

  Ignorance is bliss—except in self-awareness. What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you—and your relationships, and maybe even how you make your way in the world. It can also keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you’re stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality type system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively.
  In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach—a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of God and of ourselves. Funny and filled with stories, this book allows you to get inside the heads of people who represent each of the Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you read the chapter on your own number. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help you get on the road that will take you further along into who you really are—leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

4th Thursday Women’s Book Club
 
On Thursday, September 27th, we will discuss the memoir BORN A CRIME by Trevor Noah at 7:00 pm in the Fireside Room at Faith Lutheran Church.  These are stories of growing up in South Africa during apartheid recounted by a mixed race man.  He has a lot of insight in how apartheid was accomplished and how it affected the people living under it.  It is entertaining as well as eye opening.  Hope you can join us!
