Refresh | An Night of Laughter for Women
When was the last time you had a good, hard laugh? You know, the kind that makes your stomach hurt (in a good way)...Who were you with? What was so funny? Refresh is an event specifically designed for us laugh together not only to be refreshed and refilled with joy, but also because laughter is one of those things that connects us to each other like nothing else. And when we're connected to one another, we can grow and love better.
August 16 from 6:30–8:30 p.m. We'll have specialty desserts and then be lifted up and laughed out by our amazing (and hilarious) speaker, Tricia Lott Williford.

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.
