WOVEN SEASON 4:
A Celebration of Creation!
by Cindy Stiverson
Hello! I hope you didn't think I have deserted you! Picture me as the woman in this cartoon and if YOU are trying to fill the shoes of business woman, minister, mom, grammy, wife...yada, yada, yada...then you totally understand my absence!
I have to admit it feels great to be up while it is still dark, tapping out this message to you. Whoever you are, wherever you are: I've missed you. I hope you've missed me too.
For the women of Newark Church of the Nazarene in Newark, Ohio, I know you are missing your Woven groups and ready to begin a new season. God has a beautiful message to share with us about the fabulous way He has created us! It has a lot to do with our ability to multi-task. He has designed us "in HIS image"! Wow! Could it get any better than that?
We are going to spend some time (one time per month for the next six months, as a matter of fact!) discovering exactly what it means to be God's creation. Wow! I am so loving this topic that He has placed on my heart. There is nothing more special to me than to bring God's word to life as it relates to YOUR life. And that's what our Woven Life Group Ministry is all about!
We Are Woven: A Celebration of Creation is the title of my 4th Woven Workbook for spiritual formation and friendship among women. We will begin with Lesson One this upcoming Monday evening, October 1st, 6:30pm, in the Williams Street Worship Center. Expect some good eats and treats and lots of great women (including YOU!) at this Coffee House and Table Talk. At the end of the evening, you will have an opportunity to sign up to be in a Woven group. We have several Monday night groups, a Tuesday morning group with childcare, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday morning. Yes! Nearly any day of the week, once per month, you can attend a Woven group! How exciting is that? Hanging out with the gals, meeting new friends and catching up with BFF's. It's going to be a great time!
Newark Naz ladies, don't forget to sign up so we have an idea how many will be attending.
Not at Newark Naz? Woven Workbooks are available to begin YOUR Woven ministry! Let's talk!
For our blog friends, we will whet your appetite for this theme of A Celebration of Creation through a companion blog series, Weavings. The posts are beginning to come in (my Woven Writers have been as over-tasked as I have!). We will be sharing our God-sightings: ways in which we see God's creative hand weaving our lives together and creating a beautiful tapestry of His love. Stay tuned for Weavings...COMING SOON!
my love to you,
