I am so excited about the debut of "Outstretched Arms": A Woven Women's Weekend, sponsored by my home church, Newark Church of the Nazarene. The event is Friday-Saturday, May 13th-14th at the beautiful Cherry Valley Lodge in Newark, Ohio.http://www.cherryvalleylodge.com/
My dear friend Dustee Hullinger is coming all the way from New York City to share her heart for Gifted Hands, an art therapy ministry. Dustee and I have partnered for the kingdom in South Africa and several states. Woven and Gifted Hands beautifully complement each other (and so do Dustee & I!). http://www.giftedhands.org/
Dustee and I will serve as Woven Women of the Word, but God will be the One who imparts His word and His hospitality to our women's hearts as we seek to understand our Kingdom Position, to fuel our Kingdom Passion, and become focused on our Kingdom Purpose.
Our own Melissa Anderson, is putting together an incredible team: our Woven Women of Worship! I can't wait for this, ladies! We will certainly enter the throne room of our Heavenly Home!
Our vision for the weekend is in Psalm 37:5-6:
"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him and He will help you.
He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn;
and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun."
- Do you need to feel needed? To be understood?
- Do you long to make a lasting difference in the lives of others? To know that your life accounts for something larger than the day-to-day grind?
- Or maybe you just need to be loved...maybe you need someone to make a difference in YOUR life!
God has Kingdom-size dreams for His daughters: that we would know how much He loves us, that we would truly love one another, that we would join hands in reaching out to those who feel unloved.
We are Daughters of the Great King! God is calling us together for a common purpose: a Kingdom Purpose fueled by Holy Spirit Passion, larger than any of us can accomplish alone. And it’s as simple as allowing Him to use us right where we are!
Let’s come together with Outstretched Arms and open hearts to embrace the God who embraces us.
This Woven Weekend is open to ALL women!
