We've been busy in the past month!
Let Peace Begin With Me
    by Carol Roth

As we come before you at this moment in the busy time in our lives, may we pause to reflect on what it means to live in unity with our neighbor. 
May we love our neighbor as we love ourselves. 
May we treat our neighbor as we want to be treated. 
May we take a moment to speak to our neighbor with love and compassion.
May we offer grace and  mercy when listening to them speak.  
May we bring peace to our corner of the world 
     and with each  offering of peace may be said, 
"L et there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."

Order your 2017 Bible Study Guide Today!

This 12-session Bible study helps women recognize the Spirit's gentle nudging-or firm push-so that they can clarify and participate in God's mission for their lives. Author Anna Liechty Sawatzky draws deeply from stories in the Gospels to affirm and challenge women to live out their God-given calling and to empower them to share the good news with others.
Excellent for personal study, women's groups, and retreat settings, this dynamic study published in partnership with Mennonite Women Canada and MennoMedia nurtures the faith of women in new and active ways and encourages women in their Christian walk.


Circles of Sisterhood

Learn about the history of Mennonite women and their organizations in Anita Hooley Yoder's new book, Circles of Sisterhood. The saga of Mennonite women's organizations is a story of struggle and triumph, productivity and misgivings, questions and celebrations. During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, women's groups have offered Mennonite women a means of serving others by sewing clothing, laboring over quilts, rolling bandages, and packing school kits. Women's groups have also provided Mennonite women the opportunity to test their skills as leaders and give voice to callings they felt in a church that has not always valued their gifts for ministry.
