Looking for a place to belong where you can experience a taste of community and spiritual growth? Do you desire to have a place to belong, be encouraged and surrounded by others who are hope and joy-filled? Our adult discipleship ministries offer fellowship in environments that are welcoming and transformational to all spiritual growth stages. The women's and men's ministries are inter-generational, bringing together the rich recipe of young energy and wisdom of the experienced. Check out the current opportunities for each ministry.
Women of all ages and stages are invited to connect with one another at Uniting Sisters! This fall, women will be able to choose and engage in one of three different tracks:
THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD TRACK: Laine Korver will continue this track from the fall called The Good and Beautiful God. We will examine popular narratives about God and see if they match up with the God Jesus knows and reveals in Scripture. This track is a carry-over from last semester and will wrap up The Good and Beautiful God book and then move towards a focus on the Lenten Season.
TAKE HOLD OF THE FAITH YOU LONG FOR BOOK STUDY TRACK: A mediocre, mundane faith is not your destiny! Join Faye Howard as we read Take Hold of the Faith You Long For: Let Go, Move Forward, Live Bold by Sharon Jaynes and discover the most common reasons women get stuck in theirn Christian faith. We’ll learn how to break free and move forward, leaving behind the feelings of inferiority, inadequacy, and insecurity that are holding us hostage. We’ll uncover untapped sources of confidence and courage, which will equip us to move from knowing the truth to actually believing it and living it out boldly in a life marked by true freedom.
4 KEYS TO HEARING GOD’S VOICE TRACK: The 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice is a practical and effective approach to learning how to quiet oneself down, focus the eyes of your heart on Jesus, receive vision/flow from the Holy Spirit and record what the Lord gives you so that you may have communion with the Living God.
LOL (LIFE ON LIFE) TRACK: This track is created for those longing for fellowship, a deeper connection and a greater understanding of the mysterious ways our Lord moves among His people. There is much we can learn from talking to those on the journey of life. Each week in table groups we will talk through a variety of questions created with an intentional purpose to learn while we talk and listen. Learning to listen, learning to share our own faith walk as well as the “highs and lows” of this life will be our goal. If you want to bring a group of ladies, a friend or co-worker, or meet several new “friends”- we’d love to have you join us. There is no book with this track and each week will be different, so if you must miss a week or two, this might be the track for you!
