Women's Advent Study
December 3, 10, 17 at 9:30 am
Advent begins the season of preparation to receive Jesus as a humble child. His life is filled with journeys, starting with a trip to Bethlehem, settling in a stable that will become his first home. The stable was the first stop on his earthly journey filled with disappointments and celebrations, much like the journey we travel each day.
One of the advent messages spoken by the angels is, “Do not fear.” When the journey is scary, when pandemics and shaky economic outlooks crowd our hearts and mind, how do we maintain a life free of fear? Join Pastor Angie McCarty to explore how to walk an advent journey that does not fear the present or the future, but instead is full of love, hope, peace and joy.
Please register to receive the Zoom link; all are welcome, invite your friends!

"Story" written and led by Michelle Funk
online Zoom format | unlimited class size | breakout discussion groups
Every story has a plot, with a beginning, middle and end. The beginning introduces the setting, the characters and the problem. The middle tells how the characters react to the problem. The end usually solves the problem. When thinking about your faith, what's your story? What's your beginning, middle and end? How can you tell your story along with God's story to others?
Resource for this study: CEB Women's Bible. This bible offers an invitation to a deeper conversation with sidebar articles written by biblical scholars, pastors, and leaders who equip faith communities with the knowledge and love of scripture. Writers who tell stories about human experience of life together in relationship. Each week, a contributor who authored an article will join us to share her story!

a place that meets you right where you’re at as a mom, a woman and a friend.
Building Better Moms (BBM) strives to build a community of moms who learn, grow and serve together. BBM members meet together in a larger group setting, but are connected with a small group of moms with whom they share a table at each BBM meeting throughout the year. The BBM calendar follows the school calendar year, beginning in September and concluding in May. The schedule is set to align as much as possible with area school and holiday schedules. BBM meetings run about two hours in length and each group meets approximately twice a month to enjoy food and fellowship, speakers and group discussion. All groups also participate in mission projects supported by The Church of the Resurrection and occasional social events outside of the meeting schedule.
Imagine… you’re here!
For questions about Building Better Moms call Marty Sinclair at 913-544-0771, or email using the form below.
