Prior Events and Addresses
Faith and Fellowship
1st and 3rd Thursday each month, beginning September 20 – 9:30am-12:00pm in the Women’s Fellowship Room (Room 117)
For Mothers’ Encouragement Group this year we will be reading Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, by Paul David Tripp. You do not need to buy the book to participate, and there is no required homework! We will be reading the chapters within the group meetings and then discussing it together. We will also take time to hear one another’s prayer requests and pray for each other. Please come to have some fellowship with other mothers, have a snack, and be encouraged. We meet every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month with some variation (see below for the exact dates), from 9:30-12:00 in the WIC room. Being late is no problem and is an expected part of mom life! Childcare is provided.
The final date is May 23.
Additionally, we will organize playdates and outings on a spontaneous basis. To receive all relevant announcements and updates, you are encouraged to join the email list or the Facebook group. If you have any questions or to be added to either of these groups, please contact Stacie Aown or Rachel Nicoletti.
Tuesday Bible Studies
This fall we are offering two different Bible Studies for the women at Faith. Please consider joining one. One of the best ways to get to know other women is through a Bible study. If you are able to attend, please contact the leader to let her know your intentions.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study, Dawn Darby Leader
9:30am-12:00pm in the Women’s Fellowship Room (Room 117)
The Tuesday Women’s Bible Study will resume on Tuesday, September 10. We will be studying Colossians & Philemon using Bob Rogland’s study guide. For more information or to get a copy of the book, please see Dawn Darby.
Tuesday Afternoon Bible Study, Beth James Leader

Join us for a time of prayer and studying God’s Word, every Tuesday 12-2pm. We just started a study on apologetics, focusing on witnessing to our neighbors from other world religions. Meeting at Beth James’s home. No childcare available.
First Thursday each month, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Ladies interested in knitting, crocheting, or any kind of handwork please join us for our monthly meeting on the first Thursday of the month. Any questions, please contact Janie Irwin to RSVP.
Nursery Volunteers Needed
More nursery volunteers are needed to take care of our youngest children during the Lord’s Day services. We can only provide nursery care with sufficient helpers. Would you please consider blessing our young families by serving occasionally in the nursery? You may contact Rachel Moore to be added to the schedule.
Meals on Wheels
The purpose of Meals on Wheels is to provide meals for those families needing extra help due to illness, death in the family, adoption or childbirth. If you know of a need, please contact Kathy Haass, Alisha Bennett or the church office. Meal needs will be requested via TNT (This ‘n’ That), the church’s e-mail announcement system. To receive TNT e-mails, please contact the church office. Thank you!
Prepping the coffee/tea for fellowship is a simple, but important service to our congregation. Please consider taking part in this ministry — the more the merrier and the goal is to schedule you only once every 5-6 weeks. If you are able to help, please contact Terri Hurlbut and Margo Kelly.
