WOMEN'S DISCOVERY GROUPSexist so women of all ages, all life stages, and all walks of life can build friendships, experience mutual encouragement, support each other along the journey of life, and have the opportunity to discover and learn more about God's Word and how to apply it to their lives. The small group format of the Discovery Groups provides a safe place for women to study the Bible and to learn more about themselves, which in turn fosters their spiritual growth. It is our prayer that lives will be changed by learning more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and by connecting with a community of Christian women.
After reading through the studies, you can sign up below, by phone or at email@example.com. Payment can be made the first day of classes, when the book(s) will be available.

One Thousand Giftsby Ann Voskamp
Join us for a 5 week look at how to find and live in joy in the midst of difficulty through thankfulness. This study is an exhortation to live out 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." It's about slowing down & seeing God & the gifts He gives us every day so we can cultivate a heart of thanksgiving which can help us to have joy in the midst of trials.

Trusting God with the Ordinary
Tuesday, April 2, 9:15-11:30am and 7:00-9:00pm Potluck Breakfast (morning only)
Speaker: Arlene Dodding
God leads us through very common situations for His glory. Arlene, author & missionary, will share with us how to see with spiritual eyes the direction of God's leading, how to understand the 'nudge', the 'voice,' the 'divine encounters' through the ordinary, everyday events in our lives, and how to have God's heart for the most unlikely people. There will also be an opportunity to give towards the purchase of fabric for the Tarahumaran women of Mexico ($5 for a shawl, $10 for a dress).
Walking with the Spirit’s Presence Tuesday, May 14, 9:15-11:30am Potluck Brunch
Speaker: Marcia Fretheim
Cost: By donation
God is continually at work in the world around us, including in our own lives. The trouble is we are often too busy to stop, pay attention, and listen to what He’s doing and what He wants to say to us. Spiritual Director Marcia Fretheim will be speaking to us about how to slow down & pay attention so we can see God at work in our lives and the world around us. She will also lead us through some simple spiritual exercises we can do to help us see God more.
