Happy New Year Everyone!
I was so excited that I got to write “2015” for the first time yesterday!! It’s always exciting to embark on new beginnings, like meeting a new friend, wearing a new outfit we got for Christmas, establishing certain goals for the year, or starting a new eating plan or exercise routine (well maybe not the last two!). A fresh start always gives us a chance to prioritize what’s most important in our lives and how to keep it that way!!
I believe this new chance at “GO” propels us the deeper drive and determination to achieve and accomplish goals we didn’t reach last year or that we are striving to better in the future! All these new beginnings bring about “Resolutions” for 2015!
As Charis Women we have some Resolutions and opportunities we would like to suggest you include in your lives this 2015! Our Charis Connections Ministry provides you with a Book Club to invite your friends to. This year we will be reading and discussing the New York Times Bestselling book, The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer. With many topics specific to womanhood, it will surely provide challenges to all of us, insightful discussions along with a different “life story” shared each month by a woman of DSCC. The purpose of this ministry environment is to provide a warm, non-threatening place to bring unchurched friends and family to be loved on by others so they can find the love of Christ! Pray about what friends God wants you to bring with you!! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join a club. The clubs meet on the first Thursday of each month.
In starting my new Read Through the Bible in One Year program, I tried a new one that includes a commentary devotional. The author made a great suggestion that we make delighting in the Bible a Resolution this year. I can’t think of a better way to accomplish this than to join one of our Women’s Bible Studies for this spring semester. Here are the details of our 3 studies starting soon:
- Sunday evening at 6pm beginning 1/11 – by Beth Moore Children of the Day
- Tuesday morning at 8:45am beginning 1/13 – Breathe by Priscilla Shirer
- Wednesday evening at 6:30pm beginning 1/14 – Children of the Day by Beth Moore
If you’re new to DSCC, I would also suggest that you attend our upcoming Newcomers Connection where you can find out more about our church, our opportunities for women and get to know other women. We will have our next Connection on January 27th at 7pm.
We are extremely blessed to have many environments for connecting in whatever season of life you are in. Please check out our website for more details about all of our ministries and opportunities at www.dscchurch.com/women.
See you all soon!
