NLICC WOMEN’S UPDATE 04.08.22
Focus for April:
Trust - I can trust the God who knows me
and Jesus who died for me!
“O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down
and are acquainted with all my ways.”
QUESTION OF THE MONTH
How are you trusting God in your daily life? With what things are you trusting Him?
If you feel so led, please send your response to email@example.com.
Please respond under 700 words. We look forward to hearing from you!

Help with Seating
Can you help us? You may have noticed that the seating in the sanctuary feels a bit full. We praise God for so many people returning to worship now that the pandemic is waning, but you may have noticed that most of the seats are taken.
You can help! How?
Please sit as far forward as you can. There is plenty of space in the front seats. It makes room for more in the back. Plus, the further forward you sit, the better the sound and the easier to engage!
Please fill in those empty seats in the middle of the rows. Just squeezing together a little bit makes a big difference.
Help people find a place to sit. Our ushers are working through ways to help people find seats more easily. But, any of us can help. Do you see someone looking for a place to sit? Make a space and pull them in.
Oasis Meeting Snacks Sign-Up
Please consider signing up to bring something to share with the group. You may sign up for future dates as well. You will be reminded as we get closer to the event. Thank you for being willing to lend a hand! Contact Stacey Hunter for more information.
