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." \

TUESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY - 6:30 P.M. TO 8:30 P.M., ROOM 204 (Grace Cafe)
The Cure gives the diagnosis of this century’s religious obsession with sin-management. It has poisoned the Church, obscuring the Original Good News and sending millions away-wounded, angry and cynical, from nearly any organized expression of faith. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from a self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, which alone can heal, free and create sustainable, genuine, loving, life-giving communities. Cost for the book: $15. For more information, contact Nancy Ramella at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"The Resolution for Women"
Priscilla Shirer’s The Resolution for Women challenges all women to be intentional about embracing and thriving in God’s beautiful and eternal calling.
Priscilla explains how today’s women can and should live out their own resolution. It is a “defining banner that hangs over your life, written in the ink of your own choices.” A woman’s banner should be an accurate reflection of who she desires to be—someone completely Christ-centered who blesses and changes things in her world for the better. The Resolution for Women inspires women with intentional, spirit-filled living from three unique angles.
The Resolution for Women is designed to inspire a revolution. Sign up in the lobby or contact Susie Arnold at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Cost $10 for participant book.
Joy Fellowship meets the second Saturday of each month, 8:30 A.M. to 10:30 A.M.
Life can be so hard, so frustrating, and so daily! Women face disappointments, disarray, downfalls, delays, drawbacks, and doldrums. It's unavoidable. Contentment doesn't come naturally, and it isn't learned quickly. But it can be learned. Come, and allow God to cultivate a heart of contentment in you.
