Dessert & Design
(Leaders: Whitnee Chovanec & Courtney Stephens)

Want to be a part of a fun time of creativity and fellowship? Are you crafty with a little swag, a Pinterest wannabee...or just somewhere in between longing for a night out with dessert? Have we got a deal for you, no matter which category you find yourself in! This is the non-nerdy version of craft night for both the brave and the fearful crafters (with dessert for one and all).

Three Strands
(Leaders: Sandy Bohlen, Robin Jacobson and Christie Defries)

We were not created to do life alone.  God intended for us to have a relationship with him but also with each other.  Three Strands is a Women's mentoring ministry based on the scripture Ecclesiastes 4:12:  A cord of three strands is not easily broken.  Scripture tells us that we are to pass what we know from generation to generation.  Our goal is to prayerfully connect older and younger women together to encourage and lift one another up.  Titus 2:3-5 tells us that older women should train younger women in the Word of God.  For more information please contact Sandy Bohlen or  Robin Jacobson or Christie Defries

Surrendering the Secret: Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion

Surrendering the Secret is a trust journey through God’s Word that allows women to release this burden and find freedom through ‘redemptive community’ while experiencing hope and joy as shame and fear are replaced with blessing and power.
