Encouraging women to set coffee dates to connect with one another as sisters in Christ.  Pick up a gift card (free at our ministry table the last two Sundays of each month), extend an invitation to another Gashland woman you’d like to know better, and enjoy some Christian fellowship together.

Christmas Tea – Save the Date for December 9! 

Gathering women to pause during the busy Christmas season, to fellowship with other sisters in Christ, and to invite friends and family to reflect with us on the true joy of Emmanuel – God with us. Please consider getting involved as table hostesses and volunteers.

Precepts Study – evening group starting September 16 day group starting September 19

Our Precepts groups meet weekly at the church and participants are asked to commit to consistent attendance. This is an in-depth study with homework each week. An 11-week study will begin in September on Ephesians – The Church: Rooted in Love, Walking in Power. Chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, targeted by grace, sons of God united in a single family, inheritors, holy, redeemed, forgiven, raised from the dead and seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenlies! How can you not study Ephesians!? Before Paul even hints at how believers should live, he lays a rock-solid foundation: who we are in Christ! Praise God for what He planned in eternity past and is waiting to reveal to you now . . . through the study of His Word. Day group meets Thursdays from 1:00-3:00pm with an optional video from 3:00-4:00pm. Evening group meets Mondays from 6:00-7:30pm. Contact Carol Bryan (314-277-5619, bryancarolann@yahoo.com). Cost for materials is $23 and sign-up is requested by Sept. 6.

Thursday Nightsstarting September 19

This group meets weekly on Thursdays from 7-9pm in the Chapel. This year we are seeking Wisdom for the Journey, through testimony and sharing, connecting generations together to learn and be encouraged. Proverbs 19:20 says “Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.” Each week we’ll introduce our group members to a beloved woman from our congregation who has a story to share about her walk with the Lord. It is sure to be a sweet time of learning, discussion and fellowship. For questions or to get acquainted with our group, contact Heather Lorenzetti (816-835-2812, hjlorenzetti@gmail.com).

Women’s Wednesday Morning Gathering – starting September 11

This group meets Wednesday mornings twice a month from 9:30-11:30am in various homes for an intimate time of study, prayer and relationship building. The group is aimed at those wanting more frequent study/fellowship and those who are able to commit to most of the gatherings. We will be studying, Miracles of Jesus: A Study of What Jesus Makes Possible. We know Jesus works in miraculous ways, but do we believe he can do it with our own circumstances:  In this study, we will spend time exploring all four gospels of the Bible and discover the ways Jesus healed, provided, calmed, and resurrected. This study is about believing in the power of God who can accomplish anything. There’s nothing too big and there’s nothing too small for us to bring to Him. Our initial interest gathering is Sept 11 in the home of Melissa Cable. RSVPs for this info gathering are encouraged. Contact Melissa Cable (314-518-0337, melissapcable@gmail.com) with questions or to RSVP.

Bible Study Fellowship – starting September 12

BSF is an international, interdenominational, multicultural, and multigenerational Bible study. The KC Northland Day Women’s Class (which includes preschool classes, ages 0-kindergarten) will meet from 9:40-11:15am on Thursday mornings, beginning September 12th. This year’s study is Acts and Letters of the Apostles. There is no charge for the lessons; by faith, BSF depends on the generous contributions of class members. Please contact Cheryl Sanders at cheryl.j.sanders@sbcglobal.net or go to bsfinternational.org for registration and/or information. 

Theology Workshop

Join women from across Kansas City for a Biblical Theology Workshop taught by Nancy Guthrie. Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary will host the one-day event on Saturday, February 29, 2020 from 8:30 am – 3:00pm. From the event website: “Our aim will be to increase our Bible skills so that rather than being bored or intimidated by our Bibles, we’ll become more intrigued by them. We want to grow in confidence that we’re grasping what the Bible communicates to us and grow in love for the Savior it reveals.” Early bird pricing (through Dec 31st) is $30 and includes lunch. Visit www.nancyguthrie.com/biblical-theology-workshop for a link to buy tickets.
