A Note from JANES Women's Ministry Leader!

Happy New Year JANES!


I am so excited to see what God has in store for 2008!  New Bible studies are just around the corner and we're planning some cool opportunities for fellowship!  The Women of Faith conference is coming up as well as the It's a Girl Thing conference.  Information for all of these and more are in this issue.  Check it out and see what God has for you in the upcoming months. 


We are always looking for new ideas for bevies (small groups) and Bible studies, so if you are feeling the nudge to lead out in a group for women, let us know!  We would love to hear what God is speaking to your heart.  Or, if you are interested in serving on one of our ministry teams, we have room for you there as well!  Contact one of our leaders and let them know you're ready to serve.  We would love to have you be a part of this amazing team of women!


It's a new year and a new opportunity to know Him more.  I'm looking forward to watching Him move in this ministry, in our church and in our community.  Very exciting days ahead!





JANES Spring Bible Study
We had a great 2007 in JANES Bible Study and I'm so looking forward to 2008. God has led me to offer one Bible study this spring so that we can learn and celebrate together what God wants to speak to BAF women. We will be offering this Bible study at two different times. The study, entitled "Discerning the Voice of God" from author and speaker, Priscilla Shirer, is designed to help us know the voice of God: His language, character, and tone of voice. By growing closer to God through His Word, we will be able to discern God's voice from the voice of strangers. I have personally been through this study and can say that I have done few other studies that are as practical and encouraging as this one in developing an intimate relationship with Jesus. It's a study that is challenging to both new believers and women who have walked with Jesus for a long time. We will meet together for 6 weeks (taking a week off for Spring Break) and free childcare will be provided. I would so love for you to join us!
Monday Evening Group - February 11 through March 31 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at BAF

Tuesday Morning Group - February 12 through April 1 from 9:45-11:45 a.m. at BAF
Cost: $15 for book

Contact me if you have any questions at
daphnefine@hotmail.com. I will be at a table in the lobby at church on January 26-27 and February 2-3 to answer any questions. I look forward to seeing you there! 
Knowing Him more...

It's a Girl Thing Volunteers


We are currently looking for volunteers for the 2008 It's A Girl Thing Conference.  It's A Girl Thing is a conference for middle/high school girls and their mothers/guardians/mentors and our mission is "to encourage teenage girls to be virtuous women in a world that doesn't always care about moral and ethical standards."  The conference will be February the evening of the 1st and morning & afternoon on the 2nd at Gregory Portland Junior High.  We are in great need for volunteers for both days.  If you are interested, please e-mail Barbie Bowen at Babs1682@aol.com with your contact information or call the IAGT phone at 361-808-8883, and she will be in touch soon.  You can also sign up to volunteer on our website at www.itsagirlthing.org.  Volunteers are needed for greeting, registration, breakout sessions, product tables and many other areas.  Please join us this year and experience God's hand at work in our community!  If you know of any ladies that may be interested in volunteering their time for IAGT, please forward this email on to them.


Thanks and blessings to all,
