Heaven by Randy Alcorn

Read the “book of the month” on your own and get together with other women for an informal discussion of its content and its impact on you. Two months are being designated for the first book due to its length. Meeting locations will rotate among the group. Participants will suggest future books by Christian authors for the group to consider. Our aim is to provide another avenue for personal spiritual growth and fellowship among our women. The club is being coordinated and facilitated by Donna Beaghan.

This first book, Heaven is lengthy so we are designating two months to complete it. We would like for everyone who wants to participate to obtain a book A.S.A.P.. The book is a hard cover and costs $14.50 new. Used books in good condition are available on-line (amazon.com, thriftbook.com, etc.) for between $4 and $8 (sometimes with free shipping). If you prefer a new book please contact Donna by Monday, January 23rd so she can get an order placed through the church office. Otherwise, buy your used book on-line. The first meeting on Feb. 4th will be an introduction and general overview of the book so no need to have a specific number of pages read before then. Happy reading!

Please R.S.V.P. by responding to this email, calling Donna at 468-4287 or signing up at the information table on Sunday.

Women’s Retreat – Annual


Annual Women’s Retreat!

**Sign up cut off Feb 21st 2017**


We have reserved rooms at the Oak Glen Christian Conference Center for a women’s retreat. So, please reserve the weekend of April 28th – 30th if you want to attend.

The cost is $120 which includes lodging Friday and Saturday nights as well as five meals. We are encouraging our sisters from the other fellowships in town to attend with us. Also, please feel free to invite women in your circle of friendships who don’t live on the hill. Our goal is to have about 50 women in attendance. You can help make that happen! YOU HAVE UNTIL TUESDAY, 2/21 TO SIGN-UP SO THAT WE CAN GET A FINAL HEAD COUNT.

We are obligated to pay for the number of women we reserve space for so your prompt response is important! Scholarships will be offered to those who simply cannot afford the cost.

More about Cathy
“Cathy’s message really touched me greatly. I appreciated her transparency so much.I loved when she admitted sometimes when we step out in faith we can still become fear motivated.”

MOPS Member

Cathy’s love for the Word of God is contagious. She passionately and joyfully shares with others how very precious, practical, and powerful are the promises and truths in God’s Word, and how He desires to transform our lives into the men and women we were created to be! She has been involved in women’s ministry for over 25 years and loves to speak to these women’s groups when she gets the chance.

When she is not sitting at her desk writing in her San Diego home, you will probably find her in a coffee shop reading a good book, studying God’s word, or encouraging someone nearby.
