Parenting to the Glory of God Conference – this Friday, August 8th from 7-9 pm, Saturday and August 9th from 9am-12:30pm in Room 100
Children are the gift and blessing of the Lord. This conference focuses on the promises of God for our children, the instruction God gives to us, and the hope God offers in Christ for our children. Parenting is about a person, not just a method. This conference is for all parents regardless of your children’s age. It is profitable to: offer big picture vision for children, offer hope for parents, see the wisdom of God’s Word, experience the valuable resource of the covenant community in parenting. Please notify the church office if you plan to attend.

NO Women’s Prayer Breakfast on Saturday – All are encouraged to participate in the Parenting to the Glory of God Conference instead.

Nursery Help Needed
Karsta Toscano is looking for two people to help in the nursery.  One person will serve as a nursery supervisor just one Sunday a month.  The nursery supervisor checks children into the service before the service and then checks them back out to their parents afterwards.  The other person will serve on a weekly basis during the Sunday School hour.  She tries to keep the same people there first thing in the morning because often this is the first time the younger babies are entering the nursery and it is very comforting for them to see the same face week after week.  You may serve for three or six months at a time so that you won’t have to give up adult Sunday School for a whole year.  We are blessed with many new babies and more on the way and Karsta would like the extra warm arms and hearts ready!  Contact Karsta at toscanok@yahoo.com if you can help.

Women’s Bible Study for Fall
We have decided on a study for the Fall – The Promised One – Seeing Jesus in Genesis by Nancy Guthrie.  It will be on Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:30 and will begin September 9th. Childcare will be available. More details to come!

Looking for a childcare worker for Women’s Bible Study on Tuesday mornings beginning September 9th
Contact Christine in the office (540)786-4848 if you are interested.

Do you have an interest in an Evening Women’s Bible Study for Fall?
Are you interested in being a part of a weekly women’s Bible study in the evening beginning in September?  We’d study the same book as the Tuesday morning class – The Promised One – Seeing Jesus in Genesis by Nancy Guthrie over 20 weeks.  If so, let us know what evenings are best for you at wm@nlicc.org.  If there is no interest we will not have it as an offering, so please let us know!

Bulletin Folding
Summer is a great time to fold bulletins – older children are out of school and can help prepare for the worship service! Do you have a couple hours on a Friday afternoon you can spare? Sign up HERE to fold bulletins after 1 pm some Friday. Takes about 2 hours (faster if you bring a friend!) Questions? Ask Pam in the office.

Do you have information or needs that you’d like passed to the women of the church, activities or studies you’d like to see? Let us know at wm@nlicc.org.

in His grace,
the Women’s Ministry Committee
