...abounding in the work of the Lord

Here are some snap shots of what has been going on around here the past few weeks.  

We started a weekly ladies Bible study using an Elizabeth George study on I Timothy.  It has been so neat to see how God has brought women together, old and new,  who all share the desire to know the Lord more intimately.  

We have a ladies meeting the first Saturday of each month.  This month we were excited to have several ladies out for the first time.  We praise the Lord for giving ladies the courage to serve in new ways, like opening their home to the group, teaching children's classes, and purposing to encourage one another through prayer and notes.

 July was our month for a church fellowship so we all met together for a cook-out and games.  We were blessed by one family who opened their home at the last minute  for our gathering.  God brought a new family that night, who have visited the church once, and we all enjoyed getting to know them better.

 The kids loved the open space for running and jumping!

We praise the Lord for the faithfulness of our young people, many who come without parents.   
We pray that God will use his Word  to bring them to the Cross and give them New Life. 
 One of our young ladies organized lots of fun games for everyone to play.  We all crammed into the house to warm-up and had lots of "close communion!"
 We are learning so much as we are seeing all of our faith be stretched and learning to rest on God's promises and trust the day to day details to Him!
