Women At Rest, Sundays, 5-7pm in the Choir Room. It's not by coincidence that our acronym spells WAR. We find God's perfect rest through His peace and empowerment as we do battle on our knees. Our ministry has proven that struggles can be turned into spiritual victory when we learn to rest in God. So wherever you are in life, God is there for you and so are we. Let us walk with you in the love of God and His grace.

 Our time together will be spent:

· Learning how to have a more intimate relationship with God
· Praying over one another
· Ministering to women who are hurting
· Encouraging and supporting each other with the truth of God's Word
· Learning how to grow deeper in their relationship with our King
· Learning how to battle more effectively through prayer
· Learning how to become empowered by His grace and rest

Join us on Sundays at 5:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall. For more information, contact Heather Tabers, or Shannon Hartley.

¿No Te Pierdas Las Bendiciones De Servir
A veces, en nuestro fervor bíblico para enfatizar que la salvación no es por obras, no somos capaces de apreciar plenamente que hemos sido salvados para hacer buenas obras (Efesios 2:10). De hecho, Dios te ha colocado en tu iglesia con el fin de que tú puedas ser edificado, de modo que puedas trabajar y servirle. Si nos permitimos seguir siendo sedentarios esto significa que estamos descuidando el mismo propósito de Dios para nuestra salvación y de otros. Al servir, sigues y te comportas como Jesús y con eso también lo glorificamos. Si usted está interesado en servir como líder de una célula, coordinador de voluntarios, equipo de bienvenido o en cualquier capacidad, por favor, marque el lado reverso de la tarjeta de asistencia y díganos en que área de servicio le gustaría participar o contáctese con Pastor Tom Martínez al 407.556.5016 o
