They provide housing, food, toiletries, laundry, counseling, clothing, and more as it is available.

OPTIONAL MISSION ACTION:
We have an opportunity to serve The Care Center on Friday morning prior to the Fall Event for Women.

Other ministry projects will be available as appropriate. Meet at the church by 9:30 on Friday morning for specific assignment. Lunch is not provided. Registration for the Fall Event begins at 1:30.
We’ve got a fantastic line-up of breakout conferences for the weekend that we can’t wait to share with you! Check them out below.

Join me in looking for more intentional ways to discover a walk of prayer that is deeper and growing in my busy, daily life.
Be Transformed through Solitude led by Judy Harvey – Solitude, we’re told, is “the condition of being alone, isolation, or a lonely or secluded place.” How do we learn to value this condition or place and see a key spiritual connection to our growth and effectiveness as followers of Christ and Kingdom servants? Come and explore how God created us to be refreshed, equipped and Transformed through solitude.

Lord, I Surrender led by Rita Carr – As Christians when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ we relinquish every area of our lives to Him. Yet, surrendering our desires, sins, wants, plans and goals to the Lord and allowing Him to perform His divine and perfect will for our lives. Yet, even greater seeing Him perform in and through us a greater plan for our lives than we could ever imagine for His glory.
