Girls’ Summer Study – Sundays in June and July (except Father’s Day) – begins June 1st
“…our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace”
Following up our girls’ study last year we’ll do the same thing – girls rising 6th grade and up will be invited to a woman’s house for lunch after Morning Worship Service and have a lesson from the second book in the Becoming a True Woman series by Susan Hunt. (for those of you who participated last year, we’ve decided to have just one lesson per Sunday and stretch it over two years – so rich!) The leader and hostess will coordinate crafts and/or service activities for the afternoon and return the girls to church for Evening Worship Service. There is a $12 journal book (for this summer and next) that we’ll need to order so please RSVP to Heather by May 25th. Would you be willing to hostess or lead a session? Have a great service idea in mind? Would you like to lead worship songs for a session (thanks, Brooke Lopes for last year!)? Let Heather know.
