Ladies Night Out
We have been invited to join the ladies of
Kingsley Baptist Church
on Friday evening, the 16 of March
from 6:30 – 9:00 pm.
We could car pool from our church parking lot, meeting at 5:50 pm.
Last year, Pam and Diane attended and so enjoyed the warm fellowship, great food and fun.
This year, the first 12 gals to sign up can attend with Pam and Diane.
They serve a delicious meal, then have a game time and devotional and then have a table of beautiful prizes that are auctioned off using play money.
They host a first rate evening that we could perhaps try to duplicate at our own church this coming fall. Our crafting group has been making gifts to use as prizes with the intent of having single moms in the area as our guests of honor.
If you are planning to attend please let Diane know by Sunday, March 11. Thank You!
This will be our first ladies outing of the new year, so plan on joining us!
Women’s Bible Study
Come one – come all!
We will be starting a new Bible study on Monday, March 19, 2018. This is a 10-week study. We will meet every other Monday night at church. Anyone who wants to dig into God’s word and learn more about His love for you, this study is for you.

Do you believe God can do what He says He can do? Are you who God has called you to be? Is God’s word alive and active in you?
We hope that you will make the time to
