There is something very special about a community of women that gathers every week for friendship, worship and Christ-centered teaching. Sometimes on a Wednesday morning, I just stand at the back of the room and take it all in.
Women from five generations and every walk of life. Some grandmothers, some brand new mothers, some who run companies and some who run their households – and yet on that one morning of the week it feels as though all our labels, ages and titles are put to the side and we simply sit at tables, coffees in one hand and often babies in the other, and we laugh, learn and worship together. It’s beautiful. Often as I stand at the back of the room and watch women praying for one another I am moved to tears.
I know that every woman is looking for a place to belong. And I know that in a church the size of CLA it is so easy to be surrounded and yet feel lonely. So, when we begin to prepare for a new season in women’s ministry, we pray that every woman who walks through the door on a Wednesday morning or on a Monday evening at our Bible study in partnership with Bible Study Fellowship, will feel just that, like they belong.
The kick off to our fall season of “Mornings with Her” begins this coming Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 9:15AM in the Conference Hall and we warmly invite you to join us! This season we are offering five fantastic classes, including a special class just for our beautiful mama’s, so that no matter what season of life you may find yourself in, you will find a class that is perfect for you. Whether you are longing for a deep Bible study, a class where you can learn to pray more powerful prayers, a course that teaches you how to understand the armour of God or come against the thoughts that play out in our heads, we have a class where we believe you will feel challenged and grow deeper in your walk with Jesus each week.
We are also thrilled that during our time on Wednesdays, we are able to partner with CLA Kids Ministry to provide a free Bible based discipleship program for your kids ages 2-4 as well as a special program for homeschooled kids! Free childcare for infants and babies is also available.
So won’t you join us! This year let us link arms as sisters in Christ from every generation and grow closer to Jesus together…we can’t wait to see you on Wednesday!
