Harvest of Traditions...

Last Friday night, 84 women from Grace Covenant Church gathered for an evening of great food, wonderful fellowship and the challenge to keep Christ at the center of our traditions. The turn out was incredible (oops, ran out of cornbread!)...and the outcome was, I think, about the same.

I was so blessed to hear from our 2 speakers that evening, Linda & Susan. They both did a wonderful job of sharing their hearts for our encouragement and God's glory. Thank you for showing some Titus 2 qualities!!! We all enjoyed and appreciated it.

And I couldn't be more impressed with the people who volunteered their time, creative brains and cute stuff to make the night just that much more special. A huge thank you to my main crew...the elder's & deacon's wives of our church. You (and your families) were all a huge help and the evening would never have made it without you. And thank you's to all the people who "stopped by" to help for a even just a little all know who you are and I thank you.

I am so excited to see the next phases of our ladies' gatherings. The next one is November 21st and I couldn't be more pumped.

We are using a book called "Becoming God's True Woman", formerly called "Biblical Womanhood in the Home". It is edited by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and is packed with God-centered, complementarian-rooted teaching for women in today's skewed and feminist world.

We will be discussing the first chapter on "Femininity" by Carolyn Mahaney, well-known speaker and wife of C.J. Mahaney (Covenant Life Church).
Our hope by our monthly meetings is to restore some Biblical perspective on the glorious role and high calling of womanhood and to effectively equip our women to engage the culture with the information and knowledge needed to spread the name of Christ to all people.
Anyway, just wanted to share the delightful outcome of our first GCC Noble Women event..."Harvest of Traditions". We are blessed and thankful. (sorry, no pics...coming soon!)
Will keep you posted on the following meetings and maybe even some highlights from the book!
