One of our ministries for women is Heart to Heart. More than 10 years ago this began as a Bible study for women on Thursday Mornings. Three years ago we added an evening session for the growing number of working women in our church and community. Along the way we have added practical components to the mix while keeping our intention of providing a safe place for women to learn, laugh a lot, cry a little, and pray with and for each other.
This fall I am trying out a new format in response to the continually changing schedules and needs of East Hills women. As more women have entered and re-entered the work force our attendance at the Thursday evening session has grown to surpass the morning session. So I am going to try a session of Thursday Evening only Heart to Heart. From September 11th to November 20th we will hold Heart to Heart Thursday evenings only, 6:00-7:30, with refreshments and childcare provided. I hope all the "morning ladies" will give the evening sessions a try this semester.
Our fall series is called "10 Things Every Woman Needs To Know". Each week will have a practical topic such as what to do about a bad hair day, and a spiritual topic such as how to have a vibrant prayer life. Guest presenters will jump on board for some of the topics. Besides attending each week, there are several ways to be involved in supporting the women of East Hills and the community; I am hoping for someone to organize the arrangements for refreshments, and someone to do childcare for these 10 weeks.
I am so excited to get back to Heart to Heart; it is truly a unique place for women, and I love being part of it. If you have any questions about this new fall format or how you can be involved, see me at any weekend service, or just call the office at 423-0521. ~Ann
