A Night Off | Movie Night for Women
Need a night off? On November 8, 2018 from 6:00-9:00 p.m., we’re hosting a movie night for women! We’ll show the classic You’ve Got Mail on the big screen and enjoy popcorn, refreshments, some great conversation, and maybe even some trivia! The best part, though, is that you can wear your pajamas! Oh, and no one wants to sit at round tables or uncomfortable chairs for a movie, so pretend you’re going to a concert at Ravinia or in the park and bring your own lawn chairs or comfy chairs, some blankets, and whatever snacks you crave during movies!
This is going to be a fun, meaningful night. Invite your neighbors, your work friends, your small group!
Childcare is available for $5.00 per child!

Working Women’s Bible Study, Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. The Wednesday Night Working Women's Bible Study offers a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture. This semester we'll study 2 Samuel, which will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.
Teacher: Sheila Siggal
