Life of Paul Bible Study

We started this year's Bible Study on Monday night by taking a look at Saul/Paul and how he would have grown up. If you're interested in joining, you're welcome to at any time. At this point, we won't be using an official Bible study book, but we do have a list of questions that we are applying to each portion of Scripture as we read. These "Squeeze Your Own Juice" questions are designed to help you get more out of what you're reading and come ready to hear what other ladies found from their studies. We have two weeks between most studies, so hopefully that will allow more time for Scripture study for those who are pressed for time. For the next study on October 27th, we are looking at Acts 9:1-31 and Acts 13. Use the following questions to guide your study:

1) Find all the promises (both overt and implied).

2) How many times is God mentioned, and in what context?

3) Warnings (what to avoid - - sins)

4) Exhortations (what to apply to your life)

5) Problems, questions that I found in this passage

6) What do I learn about the author?

Next up on the Women's Ministries calendar... Book Review Night! Sarah Swan will be sharing with us about a book she read recently about Brother Yun. Also, ff you're interested, bring books to lend to other readers. Spread the love of uplifting reading among our ladies! We hope to see you there!

Craft Night

Our first activity night of the new year was a great success! Thanks to Kristy Lewis and Tammy Luckey for teaching us how to make two crafts. Here's a picture of the ladies who were able to attend. You might be able to click for a closer look at the cards and potpourri jars we made.


Next Monday, the 13th, will be the first night of our new Bible study. I wish I could tell you what exactly we will be studying, but after hours spent looking through various materials, I still haven't found the right one. I'll let you know when God tells me. :)

Ladies, I want you to know that I am so encouraged by your support and friendship for one another. Let's continue to extend the hand of fellowship to other ladies in our church and in our community!

IT'S A NEW YEAR!!

We had a great organizational meeting last night! Seventeen ladies (plus one little lady, Emily L.) were able to come and get the ball rolling for the new year. Deven Swan will be working on getting our lines of communication running smoothly, and this is one place you'll want to check frequently for upcoming events.

In the Near Future...
-Ladies' Retreat: THIS FRIDAY!! People who are riding up on the church van need to be at the church at 5:30. Kristy Lewis has graciously agreed to drive the church minivan.

Featuring Guest Bonnie Keen www.bonniekeen.com

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15


-Craft Night: On Monday, October 6th beginning at 6:30 PM, Kristy Lewis and Tammy Luckey will be hosting the first activity night of the new year. Even if you don't feel like you're the "craftiest" person around, please come and enjoy learning something new.


-Bible Study: Bible study will be every other week, beginning on October 13th. Deven Swan will be leading, and the topic of study is TBD. :)




-Nut Sales and Pancake Breakfast: Nut sales are running now through October 5th. Pancake Breakfast tickets are on sale now as well, and work times are available. The breakfast will be on October 11 from 7-11 AM. See Judy Ackley for more information.



-Book Night: Our first book review night will be October 20th. Sarah Swan will be bringing us the review. Come and find out what's going on in the world of Christian literature!







We hope you're really excited about Women's Ministries. If you have any ideas about what you'd like to see YOUR ladies' group do, please contact Deven Swan by email, or --if you're willing to risk her forgetting-- tell her in person! Remember, this group exists to encourage and refresh the women of Marion First Church of the Nazarene, and to equip those women to serve the Lord even better. Have a blessed day.
