Merry Christmas

As women, we tend to take on the role of Super Woman: organizer, shopper, wrapper, planner, baker, cook, decorator, cleaner, taxi driver, concert attendee, etc., especially during the Christmas season & in preparation for it.  For me, the past few weeks have felt a little hairy.  I tell myself every year that next year will be better;  I’ll be more organized & less frazzled.  And every year, I take that same vow (I’m sensing a pattern here.).   I’m not quite sure how to break this pattern, but I think it may be necessary to make Christmas more meaningful & relaxed for everyone.  So I begin today!

I’m still in my pyjamas, coffee in hand, and plan on spending some real quality time with my kids.  I’m really looking forward to the next two weeks.  No school = spending time with my kids & family.  My wish is that each of you would take time in the next few days or weeks to spend quality time with those close to you & with your Heavenly Father.  May you be able to say with the angels:

“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
(Luke 2:14 NLT)

On behalf of the Women’s Ministry Team, I would like to extend a very Merry Christmas to each of you!

Life’s Interruptions

Sound familiar?  They shock us; they shake us; they compel us to change.  You can’t escape life’s interruptions, but you can change your perspective on them.  Dive into the study of Jonah and discover that what you see as an interruption may truly be God’s divine invitation to a life so much bigger than you can imagine.

Join us on Wednesday evenings beginning January 19, 2011 – March 2, 2011 from 7:30 – 9:30pm, for Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted by Priscilla Shirer.  Cost is $20 and includes a member book.  Registration will be held this Sunday, December 12th & on Sunday, January 16th in the West Foyer or by calling Stacey at ph: 287-8662.

Check out the following video to learn more:
