We have a new Women's Bible Study/Retreat to share with you.
One of our Synod congregations used it and loved it! Give it a try!
"Sweet Life Cafe: Where Women Savor Time with God"
can be used as a weekend retreat, or a weekly (or even monthly ) Bible study, or shortened to a half-day retreat. Here are some comments from participants of one of our Synod's churches:
"I loved the organization of the varied activities."
"The workbook was well thought out and very helpful!"
"The handouts and the discussions were very meaningful."
"My table partners shared and shared; feelings, joys, heartbreaks,
and now I feel I have a few new close friends."
If you are looking for something else, please let me know what type of materials you are looking for and I will share what we have with you!
