INCOURAGE
July 10-11 | Live – via streaming | Contact: Womens Ministries
Ladies, We told you about InCourage Gathering many months ago as it was originally scheduled for March. They had to postpone due to the recommendations of this season and made the decision to switch to a virtual gathering.

It is happening live (via streaming) this next weekend, July 10th and 11th, and then available until July 31st.

This would be a great opportunity to grab a few ladies and lean into some amazing teaching, worship, and encouragement! There are 4 main sessions and 40 breakout sessions covering a wide range of topics!

These are just a few of the topics:
Healthy Body Image
Helping our Children with Trauma and Abuse
Singleness and Sexuality
Mothering Adult Women
Developing Boundaries and Healing Codependency
Unity through the Power of God’s Love
Journeying through Pregnancy Loss
We Need Each Other: Friendship Matters
Being an Agent of Hope
Big Emotions and Children
Soul Care in the Midst of Suffering
Technology and the Impact on ALL of Us
What is a Healthy Marriage?

So many great topics, make sure you check it out!

Invite a friend or two to watch with you because we need others to walk with as we navigate this life with Jesus!

If you do ‘attend’, we would love to know! We want to hear how God is meeting you right now and what you are processing, so drop us a note to say – I’m in!

VIRTUAL VBS
July 20 – July 24 | Online | Contact: Uma
We are excited to announce that we are offering a Virtual VBS experience this summer! Join us for a full VBS experience at home FOR FREE! Preschoolers to Preteens will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN’T see because of what they CAN see. You can register here. We are still taking registrations through Monday, but cannot guarantee a free T-shirt. A VBS Home Kit contains everything you need for a successful Virtual VBS at home. Your child will also get a free t-shirt! The kits and shirts will be available at our Pick Up Party on July 18th.
