MEET SHERRIE McDONALD - VIDEO - Director of Women's Ministries
From Sherrie's Desk:
"My heart’s desire as the Women’s Ministries Director at Grace Church is to develop godly women who are seeking to live out God’s Word in such a way that it affects their daily actions, reactions and relationships. It is only through the study and application of God’s Word to our lives that we will become the women He has created us to be. We are offering a wide range of opportunities for you to be involved in a Bible study (CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF SMALL GROUPS which are listed in the monthly newsletter). It is our prayer that as you read through the brochure, you will find a study that fits your schedule. Let’s join together to get to know “Jesus, our God and Lord, better and better” (2 Peter 1:2 NLT), so that we can transform our personal lives and our relationships with others." \

“With a jam-packed life, what’s missing is space—space for God to speak, room for you to hear. It’s time to set aside the activities and busyness that swallows up rest and peace.

Is it possible to start over, to have lives of harmony and peace. In this ten-week study, Nancy Leigh DeMoss sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God’s grace, forgiveness, and abundant life.

THURSDAY EVENING WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDIES
"CONQUERING CODEPENDENCY" BEGINS FEBRUARY 5, 7:00 P.M. TO 8:30 P.M., ROOM 101 (Library)
Are you the one always “giving” or always “giving in”? Do you try to please everyone and feel responsible for their happiness? Are you always meeting everyone else’s needs, even if it’s detrimental to yourself? These are some of the behaviors we will address in a new 13 week study that will explain our need to gain approval of others, while we try to control all circumstances. In a Christ-centered program, we will explore what it means to have healthy relationships and take care of ourselves in the process. If you can identify with these behaviors, we encourage you to sign up and join us. For more information, contact Nancy Sullivan at 862-258-3071. Sign up in the lobby.

Are you looking for a Valentine's Day gift for a special woman in your life? Or women, are you looking for a great hint to give someone looking for the perfect gift for you? How about an opportunity to pursue a heart Fully Alive? For the Spring 2015 Women’s Retreat March 20-22, we will explore Proverbs 4:23: “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” As believers, Christ enlivens our hearts; but are we living free, full and joyous lives? Or are we struggling with feelings of failure and rejection, sin, faithlessness and trouble in our relationships? Spend time with God, seeing what it means to be a new creation in Christ. Come and learn how to win the battle for your mind as we interact and internalize the Truth. Our time together will be a weekend of refreshing encounters righting our hearts through prayer, meditation on God’s Word and fellowship with other women. Tickets sales will resume on January 18. We are able to offer this weekend at last year’s prices. Tickets will be $250 per person for two nights, double occupancy and $150 per person for one night, double occupancy.
