From Dishes to Discipleship...

The Month of January in Women's Ministry

Ladies, as you are getting back into the swing of things with kids off to school and the un-decorating of all things Christmas behind you, let me encourage you to take a moment to open your calendars and prayerfully consider these great opportunities for Bible study and fellowship in the coming weeks (and there are links to make registration easy!). And husbands, this is for you, too--perhaps this will give you a way to encourage your wives to attend our retreat or the evening with Sharon Phillips or surprise her with help finding babysitters! And to our readers who are not FPC members...we invite guests to join us for all of these opportunities, just don't forget to RSVP!

Ladies’ Night Out with Sharon Phillips: Beauty That Really Matters
Friday, January 30th from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Youth House Den

While the men are attending the Mid-South Men’s Rally, ladies, you have an opportunity for a fireside chat with his wife, Sharon! We will enjoy soup and fellowship together, followed by Sharon speaking to us on beauty that really matters-- issues of godliness and inner beauty in the life of Christian women. A nursery is provided, but registration is extremely important as we attempt to juggle all the men and women on this busy evening!

This breakfast is especially designed with the young adult single woman in mind (college students and older). Rick and Sharon have written a book on this topic entitled: Holding Hands, Holding Hearts -- girls, you might want to pick up a copy before our breakfast with Sharon! This is an informal time where Sharon will do a bit of presenting and a lot of interacting. Come and enjoy breakfast, bring your questions, and be ready for good conversation!

Ladies Retreat at Twin Lakes: Designed by God, Living in a Designer World
February 6th - 7th
Speaker: Ashley Hall

This is a weekend to leave all of the fast-paced busyness behind and retreat to Twin Lakes for encouraging Bible study and fellowship with the ladies of FPC. Our prayer is that you will find rest and encouragement during our girls weekend, as we take an honest look at how very different the world of the Bible is from our own designer world. Whether you are single, married, a mother, a wife, a grandmother, a daughter, or an aunt, we are effected both positively and negatively by our culture. If we desire to be salt and light in a watching world and pass on godliness to the generations following us, we first have to seek to understand where we live and then, how we as women of God, can go about redeeming the culture. Invite friends and sign-up early for the reduced cost!

Friday Evening:
4:00 - 6:00 Registration and Settling In
6:30 - Dinner and Fellowship
7:30 - 9:30 Session 1 - Where We Live is NOT the Garden of Eden - From Genesis to Jackson!
