A morning of food, fellowship, and a study of God's Word
Saturday, October 13th • 9:00-11:30 a.m.
Ladies~ Please plan to join us for a morning of food, fellowship, and a study of God's Word in a casual, relaxed atmosphere that welcomes women of all ages.
Throughout the year, at each Breakfast, Bibles & Blessings, we will take a closer look at the "I AM" statements of Jesus. Through our video lessons-based in the Holy Land, and our Bible study small group discussions, we will come to know our Savior in a deeper way as we learn more about who He truly is. When we grasp the "I AM" statements, we'll more clearly see and understand these pictures of Jesus, and we will draw nearer to Him as a result. We all need to know Jesus better- He is everything we need!
Please see the lobby display for more information and take a few invitations to hand out to others. We encourage you to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
All women are welcome! You will be blessed!
Breakfast, Bibles & Blessings
"Worthy is the Lamb" study of the book of Revelation
October dates: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 • 9:30-11:00 am
Lower Level Fellowship Room (LifeTree Café area)
We will resume our study of the book of Revelation "Worthy is the Lamb." We have completed chapters 1-14 and will now look at the third earthly vision that reveals the final judgments of God poured out on humankind.
If you would like to join us in this study, please contact Charlene Behne at 763-784-8320 so we have enough materials available.
In-depth Bible Study
The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by Beth Moore provides a personal study experience for this in-depth women's Bible study of Genesis 12-50.
Discover God's pursuit of a relationship with man, and marvel as His plan to bless all people unfolds. Full of twists and turns, ruin and redemption, revelation and mystery, this Bible study will keep us captivated by the God who stars in it! We will explore concepts such as blessings, covenant, and promise, and the bearing each has on New Testament believers lives today. We will also study the Hebrew name of God introduced on the early pages of Scripture.
Throughout 11 sessions and 10 weeks of DVD lessons on exciting and engaging intrigue, we will plunge into the heart of Genesis to God's remarkable pursuit of relationship, and to the unfolding of His earthly plan: that through one nation - and ultimately one man - all people on earth will be blessed. Many of the most profound and enduring concepts in the whole counsel of God's Word are initiated in this marvelous book of beginnings.

LWML Sunday • October 7, 2018
The theme for LWML Sunday this year is "Our Rest in a Changing World."Need a break from this busy life and always wondering what might happen next? Read Psalm 62:5-8, pause, and gain insight in seeking that rest in God. "For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken. On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us."
For 75 years, LWML women have supported worldwide missions through Mite Box offerings. During this past year over $687,000 has been collected and donated toward selected mission grants chosen at the convention help in Albuquerque in 2017. In your bulletin on October 7th will be a bookmark noting the specific grants and a prayer for you to reflect on.
Stop by our display in the lobby on October 7th.
