Upcoming Events

Stories of Freedom – February 1, 6:45-9 p.m.
Student Ministries Center
Jesus said, “The Truth will set you free,” so why do many who confess Christ continue to be enslaved by such things as fear, jealousy, discontentment, and self-pity? Join other women to hear stories of encouragement that remind us, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free!” (Galatians 5:1) Register here. Contact Eri Heck at 224.764.4042 for questions or more info.

Titus 2 Training

This one-year LIFE group  is designed to foster inter-generational relationships among women who love God’s Word and desire to know what the Bible says about who she is and how she can reflect the gospel distinctively as a woman. Drawing from the Scriptures, our aim is to encourage and equip older and younger women, both married and single, to live for God’s glory in every area of their lives. We meet on Thursday evenings for 8 weeks in the fall and 10 weeks in the winter/spring. For more information, contact Linda Green, 224.764.4017.
