Hello JANES!

Summer has arrived and I hope that you all have
 plans to find some time for rest and relaxation.
  It has been such a busy season and I think 
we're all ready for a vacation!  Bible Studies will 
resume in the fall, but I encourage you to stay in
 the Word over the next several weeks.  Check 
out the Web Bible Babes link and follow along 
with an on-line study or look into some of the 
studies offered at Lifeway.  It's also fun and challenging to pick a book of the Bible and study
 on your own.  Some great study helps can be 
found at www.blueletterbible.com and www.biblegateway.com
Expo 2008 is just around the corner!  If you are feeling the nudge to get out of your comfort 
zone and lead a group, now is the time!  I am 
praying that God will show you how uniquely you 
are gifted and then give you the courage to step 
out and lead a group of your own this fall.  If you are interested in leading a bevy or hometeam, 
contact April at april.atkinson@yahoo.com.  If 
you are leaning more towards a mission-focused 
group, contact Marta at martp26@yahoo.com.  
April and Marta can answer any of your 
questions about starting a group and stepping 
into an exciting leadership role!
You are an amazing group of women, called to 
be history-makers in this generation.  No doubt,
 it thrills the heart of God to see you live out 
your calling.  Keep at it, for you will reap a great reward if you don't give up!  
Blessed to be your servant,


Newsletter Editor/Blog Manager
If you are gifted in the area of publishing and 
editing and you are interested in being a part of
 a fun and exciting team of women, we have an
 opportunity for you!  The JANES online 
newsletter and the JANES Blog are valuable
 resources that allow our BAF women to stay connected with what's going on in the life of 
this ministry.  If you are creative with words,  
have a passion for writing and communicating, 
and have 2-3 hours a week to dedicate to 
JANES, we would love to have you on board! 
Contact DeeDee for more info.
Fill the Front!
We've realized that our church is at the size now 
where we need more than just the band leading 
worship. When our members and committed 
attendees sit in the front of the auditorium during 
the worship service, it can generate an enthusiasm 
and spirit of worship that is infectious for the entire
 congregation. We would like to invite all of the 
MOB, JANES and Home Team members to make 
a concerted effort to "fill up the front" at every 
service. Please join us starting this weekend.
  Save the Date!
Get ready for the next JANES Expo on September

that the JANES Women's Ministry has to offer the 
women of BAF and our community.  If you would 
like to get invovled in one of our ministries, visit
