Issue: 8

Note From Women's Minister



It's the month of LOVE and we have some great opportunities to spread it around!  The Grunt Girls are gearing up for a mission February 2nd and they would be thrilled to have you join them.  We also have The Rise School 1k/5k Walk this month and JANES needs a solid team to compete against the MOB!  If you are interested in joining with your sistas and making a difference in our community, jump on board!  There are great promises in store when we serve our community in an attitude of LOVE.




"Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless-cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything-encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!"

-1 Peter 4:8-11 (The Message)

JANES Movie/Lunch
JANES Movie/Lunch at the Indie Theater was a HUGE success. We had over forty ladies join us, while we watched The Nativity Story and ate a wonderful lunch.  It was awesome seeing so many JANES kick-back, relax and enjoy some much deserved fellowship with one another!  We want to thank our wonderful Events-Team Coordinator, Robin, and her awesome E-team volunteers!  You ladies did an excellent job! Visit the E-team blog for more information on how to get involved!

Let's Lunch, Ladies

The Ladies Who Lunch have been lunching all around town; have you joined, yet? The goal of this group is to help ladies in the church meet each other. By expanding our circle we not only meet other women, but we also feel more connected to the church. 

This bevy meets twice a month. Once during the week and once on Saturdays, so you choose which time fits best into your schedule. You can even come to both! If you are looking for a bevy where you have the opportunity to meet other Christian women and discuss what the Lord is doing in your life all while enjoying a delicious meal, this bevy is for you!

We all deserve a break once in a while, so let's have lunch! No Kids, No Men, No Worries! If you would like more information about the Ladies Who Lunch, please email Esther Pais at ladieswholunch@hotmail.com or call 442-6550.
