Small groups are a means to an end, not an end in and of themselves. Small groups exist as a way for people to engage in biblical community that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives. Acts 2:42-47 gives us a great picture of the early church and the components of biblical community, which encompassed both the "temple courts" and "house to house." These believers engaged in life together through teaching, fellowship, communion, prayer, miracles, radical generosity, and corporate worship. They spent time together eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Good News, and supporting each other.
We are gifted here with several small groups for our ladies: MOPS, MOMSNext, Wednesday Night Ladies and Thursday night. Check out the Women’s Ministry page on the church website for information about each group.
The Thursday Night group is beginning a study on Prayer – what is it, why do it and how to. Let Deb Williamson know if you want to join this opportunity so materials can be ordered.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study - "Families of the Bible"
The Wednesday evening women’s Bible study are learning about families of the Bible. Please contact Deb Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 525-3112 for more information.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”
THURSDAY NIGHT SMALL GROUP
“To Jesus, prayer was central and essential. He prayed not because He had to or only to give a good example but because He needed it urgently. Sensing what prayer meant to Him and did for Him, one of the disciples longed for that experience and knew that the others felt the same way. All of this is behind the plea, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’” [From the study introduction,]
Journey into Prayer is a 6-8 week study about the lifetime journey of prayer whose goal is to help each of us develop a personal and intimate relationship with God.
All women, 16 years and over, are invited to join us on Thursday evenings in the church Conference Room (6:30 – 8:00 p.m.) as we walk together through this life-changing study together. In addition to building a stronger relationship with God, we will be building strong relationships with each other. It’s never too late to connect!

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10
Moms live in messes. The toys, crumbs, and spit-up are their natural surroundings. Moms often feel like a mess. They are exhausted, under-showered, and hormonal.
A Beautiful Mess reminds moms that beauty can come out of their difficult spots. The grime of mothering young children brings the beauty of motherhood.
The next MOPS meeting (“Embracing Your Unique Child”) will be Thursday, April 10, from 6:30-8:30. We will have a presentation by a psychologist on birth order and how it impacts personality. All mothers of preschoolers are welcome. First visit is free, and child care is provided at no charge!
We would love to have you join us and bring a friend!

LWML collects stamps for missions with the collectable stamps. Please save your stamps from the envelopes you receive by cutting 1/4" around the stamps and placing them in the container in the communication center. There is also a sheet that explains more about the stamps near the container. This helps us to help others, including the LWML scholarships that several of our members received.
Please save and collect your mites (your change) and put it in the MITE box located on the table in the communication center. This money, as well as the stamps, is turned in to the District and National LWML's to help pay for the mission grants that are currently under way. We thank you for your contributions.
