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." \

SUMMER BIBLE STUDY: LOVE DARE FOR MOMS, STARTS SUNDAY, JUNE 1, 11:15 A.M., ROOM 105 (Every other Sunday)
The Love Dare for Parents is an easy to read study that can be worked into any busy schedule. The Love Dare for Parents is designed to “turn the hearts of parents to their children and turn the hearts of children to their parents (Malachi 4:6) so that moms can more fully enjoy and delight in their children while maximizing the positive impact they have on their lives long term.” Each day brings a promising key verse from Scripture, a biblical principle about love that applies to parenting, a specific challenge the parent does for the sake of their child, and space to journal thoughts and reflect on what happened that day. This study will start June 1 and meet every other Sunday through August in Room 105 at 11:15 A.M. Sign up in the lobby or contact Christen Mazzarella at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-726-9481.

SUNDAY MORNING WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY - "DISCERNING THE VOICE OF GOD, HOW TO RECOGNIZE WHEN GOD SPEAKS" BY PRISCILLA SHIRER
BEGINS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, ALTERNATING SUNDAYS, 11:15 A.M., ROOM 105, 7 SEVEN SESSIONS
"The Father so passionately loves you that He sent Jesus to die in your place. He desires a personal relationship in which He speaks directly to you. Have you spent most of your Christian life leaning on these beliefs without really experiencing them? Have you been in the presence of passionate believers who shared stirring encounters with God’s voice while your own soul overflowed with confusion? How did these saints know God was speaking? Discerning the voice of God provides participants with practical help in knowing what you hear is from God. Through this study you will become more familiar with God’s Holy Spirit, His character, language, and tone of voice.” Contact Lisa Faucette for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up in the lobby.
