What do you know to be true about God?
And a few little pieces:
The “Inevitable” Guests
(the husbands come every year to kiss their wives because they can’t last two days without them!)
Thanks, Brooke, for the sign to remind them that WoP is a GIRL’S ONLY RETREAT.
unfortunately, the sign didn’t seem to have much of an effect.
We are so excited about our upcoming retreat. This week we’ll be busy preparing crafts and teachings sessions and all kinds of fun!
I hope that each of you can take this time to prepare yourselves as well. Be praying for the leaders and other girls. Be reading your Bible. Be excited!
Natasha (for the rest)
P.S. If you haven’t signed up for the retreat but would like to go, there is still room! Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll get the information to you! (check Events page for dates, etc…)
It’s that time of year again! The end of 2011 is coming and 2012 will begin in a few short weeks. And that, of course, means that…. *drum roll* our Women of Promise 2012 Retreat is coming up!
Brochures will be sent out soon. If you would like some to pass out to friends, let me know (email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on facebook or on this post!) and I’ll be sure to get you however many you need.
As for other exciting news- this year we are welcoming a new team member! August Christman was a part of WoP back in her high school years and she will now be joining us as a leader!
So! Make sure to sign up for email updates (on the sidebar) or follow this blog so you can catch each of our posts!
I’m excited about what God is going to teach us this year!
Finally, here’s the video from the garden party! Um, I did have it ready a week later, as I said in this post, but… it’s a long story. Miss you girls!
Here’s some initial photos from our spring garden party… I’m still working on the rest of them, and hope to have a video sometime this week.
We had so much fun wearing hats, eating dainty food while sitting on quilts. Quite a few of the girls made their hats, including Courtney. I loved it!
the lovely natasha.
When we arrived, Brianna promptly informed us that we had to call each other “dahrling” all day long. We did for five minutes… and promptly forgot.
At the party we talked about the meaning of our names, how God knows us by name, and how He will give us a new name.
That’s the simple version. I’ll tell you more soon. ❤
We had a great time at our last meeting! For those of you who were unable to make it- we talked about serving. God is asking us to have a servants heart, which means, to put other people above ourselves! It is such a high calling and can be so difficult at times…
Delite asked us to work at memorizing a verse or two before the next meeting (the last Saturday in June, a Garden Party!) so just as a reminder, I am going to post them here. Take your pick and remember, there are prizes for those who can write a verse out without looking!
“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
I Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Again, don’t forget our June meeting!
It’s been a month already. Crazy… although I’m a little mixed up, because I wasn’t really at the last meeting – even though I was at part of it, because you lovely ladies came to see the play.
Anyhow, we’re back to the regular meeting, for one month at least. *smiles* Details are as follows:
Where: Cheri’s house, in Martinsburg
When: Saturday, May 28 – 5 to 8 p.m.
Who: Girls, ages 10-15
Delite is in charge this month… so you know it’ll be fun! Anyhow, remember we’ll have dinner, and bring your Bibles and notebooks.
See ya there!
