Women’s Update 2/23/17 – Answer to Q of the Month

Focus for February: Love One Another

Romans 12:10 “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”


  • Clarification: Chemical and Fragrance Sensitivities
    There are a number of men, women, and children in our congregation who experience asthma, headaches, and nausea from fragrances and chemicals. There is no requirement to refrain from using products with fragrances at New Life in Christ Church. However, please keep these sensitivities in mind. Thank you for your consideration!
  • New Women’s Bible Study begins March 7th –  Come grow with us into spring as we study The Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin.  No homework preparation for the first class.  Purchase your book here or at Lifeway. Questions?  Contact Karen Melnick at karen_jim@juno.com.
  • Ladies’ Missions Brunch | Saturday, March 11 at 9 am We are honored to have Yashmin Clark sharing with us.  Amy Auker is looking for assistance with decorations, set up, or clean up; please let Amy know as soon possible if you are able to help in this way.  If you are able to bring something to share, please click here.
  • As many of you know, Billy and Yashmin Clark are here from Peru with their three girls Grace, Faith and Hope.  They are staying in the Manse.   They  arrived in the middle of the ice storm in January, and we were unable to arrange a pounding or meal delivery for them.  We would like to encourage them during their visit – they will be here till mid-March.  If you would
    like to invite their family for a meal, you email Yashmin at williambrookeclark@gmail.com
    Or you could make some baked goods and drop them at the Manse – our desire is to be a blessing to them so be as creative as you wish. We recommend you don’t wait till the last minute as their time with us will go by quickly.
  • Invitation to Exercise and Fellowship.  Want to join us for a brisk walk? A growing group of women originating from the Capitano care group walk at 1pm on weekdays when 2 or more are available.  We walk the Canal Path loop (approx 3 miles) in just under one hour. We park at the CVS on Rt. 1 near the hospital. Strollers and dogs welcome!  We have a group text so that we know who is coming – Let Heather O’Hara know if you’d like to be included in the group.

         Love Divine, All loves Excelling

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heaven , to earth come down

fix in us they humble dwelling, all they faithful mercies crown

Jesus, thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love thou art;

visit us with thy salvation, enter every trembling heart.


WMC Question of the Month: 

“How can you better love your sisters in Christ this month? How have you been loved and honored in the past by a fellow sister in Christ?”

I can better love my sisters in Christ this month by being available – taking time out to send a message, make a call & just reach out.  It is when others do these very things for me that I feel loved and encouraged – it is an honor to be the recipient of that smile, hug or visit.  It is time well spent for all involved and I plan to do more of it :D.
