Well, even though fall doesn't technically begin until September 22 this year, we are in high gear getting ready for the fall now! There is so much that the Lord is preparing for us and for you - we are ready to get GOING! So please make note of the following VERY IMPORTANT DATES:
SEE JANE GO! Fall Kick-Off Party: Wed, September 9  6:30-8 pm in the Bay Area Lobby
Janes EXPO:  Saturday/Sunday, September 26-27
Before and after all weekend services in the Bay Area Lobby
Our fall kick-off party is something you do not want to miss! I've missed seeing you over the summer and I'm anxious to share the plans for 2009-2010, including plans for GLO Conference 2010 - with a VERY special guest speaker that I will be announcing that night! You'll hear about lots of opportunities to get involved in Janes at a "whole nutha level!" It's going to be an amazing year! If you have friends that would like to know more about women's ministry at Bay Area, be sure and invite them and bring them along - it will be a great night to meet some new friends as well!


I am so excited to announce that Alene Snodgrass will be taking my former responsibilities as our "SEE JANE GROW" Coordinator. She will oversee our Bible studies from now on. As of September, Alene will be a twice-published author of her own Bible studies. She has an amazing story and a gift for teaching and communicating God's truth in a relevant and encouraging way. You're going to love her! She'll be at the SEE JANE GO Fall Kick-off Party ready to meet you!
Alisa Wagner is returning to the Janes Leadership Team to coordinate our quickly-multiplying One on One with God groups and to help us with some exciting new things that I will share with you later! I'm so glad to have her back!
Also, I want to let you know that Mandy Ward, our amazing Administrative Team Leader had to step down from her position last month due to new work responsibilities God has provided for her. I will miss her so much, but am thankful that she was such an amazing team-builder, because the girls that served with her are pressing on in fabulous ministries even after she stepped down - the mark of a great leader! Thank you, Mandy for all of your help and I pray for God's sweetest blessing on your new adventure!
Check out the rest of our newsletter for some other amazing opportunities coming up very soon! Please reply to this email with any questions you have or if you are interested in jumping in to serve in Janes.
I love you and can't wait to see you all in September!!

Dear GRUNT GIRLS & Friends: 
      A recent fire has affected one of our very own GRUNT GIRLS, Angie Estrada. A fire took place at her mother's home and left heavy property damage. Although the fire was contained to one part of her house, the effects touched every part of the home. The water and fire damage have resulted in the electricity not working. Unfortunately the family has no home owner's insurance. The family has no resources or means to begin the rebuilding process. So I come to you and ask the body of Christ  to help Angie's mother who is in great need. We are asking for any licensed electricians, carpenters, and skilled crafts to step up and donate their skills and if possible material resources. Donations are welcomed and prayers are needed for this family. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and give from your heart.  
Address to send donation:
