Wednesday’s Women Book Group
Starts September 18 at 10:30AM – 12:00PM
A group of women who gather to discuss the world, the church and ourselves through the lens of the book of the moment. We’ll be reading “The Faith Club,” a book about three women, an American Muslim, a Jewish woman and a Christian woman who together form a club in search of understanding for one another. Meetings in the Fireside Room. Contact Mary Toufar maryt@waconiafaithlutheran.com with questions.
Mom’s Connect
Start September 26th. Thursday at 9:30 – 11:00AM in the Fireside Room
Moms of kids, teens, and young adults ranging from babies through college-aged. Childcare is provided on Thursday mornings for $5/family with on-line pre-registration. This weekly group is for any woman with children looking to build Christian friendships and to deepen spiritual growth. We will be reading Brené Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection. In a world where insults, criticisms, and fears are spread too generously alongside messages of unrealistic beauty, attainment, and expectation, we look for ways to “dig deep” and find truth and gratitude in our lives. A new way forward means we can’t hold on too tightly to our own self-defeating thoughts or the displaced pain in our world. Instead, we can embrace the imperfection.
