No Fear! – Kelly Buck
Science tells us that we are born with two fears: fear of falling and loud noises. Fear can literally choke the life out of us. Fear can be momentary or persistent. Identifying our fears is not enough. Is there any hope for being free from the terror of fear? Yes! II Corinthians 10:5 says “we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” How on earth do I do that? Come see!

Please join us as we discuss God’s call for us to care for others who are hurting and consider together the goal “What does love look like?”
I’m Not Bossy, It’s Leadership Skills, I Tell You—Leadership! – Lisa Hellier
Strong women who are gifted to teach, lead, and instruct wonder about where they fit, how they may serve, and even if ministry in the complementarian context of the PCA will be satisfying. Have these skills been mistakenly given to a population with no place to use them? Come and see how God’s wisdom in creation has its expression for your service through the lens of the covenant. Scripture clearly speaks to God’s good plan for a woman’s fruitful ministry. Come and be encouraged as to how your God given talents can be rightly used for His glory without fear or frustration.
Redefining Southern Comfort – Ronjanett Taylor and Sherry Lanier
Diversity is a wondrous facet of God’s Kingdom design. But the reality is that it is very challenging to our comfort to move beyond ourselves and engage with those who are from a differing age/stage of life, or a different ethnic, cultural, economic, or geographic background. Examining what the Bible has to say about comfort and remembering that we all naturally desire it over difficulty or pain, we will ‘flesh out’ how comfort can sometimes push away community, and in essence, obedience. We will discuss how to move beyond our comfort zones to a place of unity, forgiveness, and edification as we focus on our sisterhood in Christ.
