Life Together - Women

Saturday May 14, 2016 to Saturday May 14, 2016

DescriptionDo you ever feel isolated and disconnected from other believers in your personal walk with God? The Bible says to live a life “rooted and grounded in God’s love” (Eph 3:17). God’s transforming love can change us…but not when we isolate ourselves from other people. We need the company and care of others for support, growth and perspective.  “Life Together”, a monthly gathering (second Saturday of the month) for women who would like to connect with one another and to explore together how to live a life “rooted and grounded in God’s love“. We will enjoy breakfast goodies, get to know one another and discuss a variety of topics each month. 

 

Next Date: SECOND Saturday of each month at 8:30am (September - May)
Location: Prairie Ridge Church
RSVP: Not required - just show up! And feel free to bring a friend!
Event Contact: Joni Pine (jpine@ridgelife.org)
