How to be a Confident Disciple-making Parent in the Busyness of Life
January 12, 2019 from 9am-12pm
March 9, 2019 from 9am-12pm
When parents understand and strive to follow Deuteronomy 6:4-7, they will discover practical ways to be confident disciple-makers of their children in the natural rhythm of their busy lives. Homes can be changed in extraordinary ways when families intentionally apply this approach to the children God has entrusted to them.

Hope United Haiti- We shared about Hope United, a nonprofit which we are a part of. As some may be aware, Haiti has no public education. Private education is the only choice a child has. Through the efforts of the nonprofit, a school has been established. Currently there are 130 children enrolled but only 10 have been sponsored leaving 120 in need of sponsorship. The cost to sponsor a child is $30/month. If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please go to www.hopeunitedhaiti.org where you may choose a child to sponsor. Here is a link to a GoFundMe Page to help support our dental clinic on our October mission trip to Haiti.
Crosslink Women Fellowship, Study, Serve
Our next “Study, Fellowship, Serve” will be Dec. 15 from 9-11am. Childcare provided. Nicole Robinson and Nala Edwards will be sharing with us about the importance of walking in the spirit daily. It will be a short devotion so we can go caroling and share cookies with residents at West Hampton apartments. Bring a dozen or two of cookies and come join in on the fun!
