We sincerely hope you can join us!

HOW TO SIGN UP:

Intellectual knowledge gained in a class does not always translate into useful life change. The sad fact is that seminaries are packed with men and women who fill their minds with knowledge that never affects how they live, how they think, or even how they feel. I spoke recently with a doctoral candidate in Biblical studies who keeps a list of twelve things they can never forgive their spouse for. How can a person know so much about Jesus and not have His teachings change their world-view?
But the opposite is also true. Churches are packed with men and women who honestly long to have their lives changed by Jesus but don’t understand His teaching or how He offers to change their lives. They are unaware of the story He has written them into, and all too often live their lives trying to squeeze Him down into being an accessory in the story the Enemy has deceived us into believing. Unless they study Jesus and His teachings, how can they become like Him? How can they find the life He designed for them?
Join us as we catch up with one another, enjoy breakfast foods and discuss the BIG PICTURE of the church and how you fit into that as a uniquely gifted woman.
Saturday, May 14th
9am-11am Sam B's Restaurant
