beholdOur theme for women’s ministry for 2016 is ‘Behold the King.’  This year as we step into the ministries God has prepared for us, we also seek to step into greater understanding, love and awe for the King we serve. Our prayer is that the different events and groups that are planned don’t become another thing to do, but an opportunity to live up, in and out in new and exciting ways. Here is a look at what is planned through the end of the year.

 

Fall Retreat

Join new and old friends October 14 – 16 at the Lake Huron Retreat Center for a fun weekend of rest, worship and spiritual growth.

Register Now Online or at the Ministry table in the hallway beginning September 11th. The Cost of the retreat is $175.  A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot.

Prayer Breakfast

Save the date – Saturday, October 29th

Clothes Swap

Save the date – Saturday, November 5th from 9:30AM – Noon.
What is a Clothes Swap? A clothing swap is a totally FREE event with no obligation to bring anything or take anything.  It’s called a swap because people bring clothes they no longer need, and take clothes they do need. A clothing swap works like this;  at home, sort and fold clean clothes, clothes you wouldn’t mind putting on your family to go out in public, by size into boxes or bags.  Then, when you get to the swap, sort the clothes by size onto marked tables. Then comes the fun part, go to the tables with the size clothes that you want, and take what you need, free of charge. No strings attached. There are no minimums or maximums. This annual outreach event of Women of Faith is a great service to our community.

 

Christmas Progrm

Save the date for Faith Church’s annual Women’s Christmas Program, Home to You the evening of Thursday, December 1st. Join us as we enjoy an evening of old and new Christmas traditions as we celebrate God and the Son He sent to save us. More information is coming soon.
