Bay Area Fellowship JANES

Building Christ-Centered Community Among Women 

I am so proud of the tapestry of amazing women that make up the women's ministry of Bay Area Fellowship.  You are each unique and gifted so beautifully to fit the life He designed you for.  You have been faithful to serve the women around you and your Christ-like attitudes are continually touching our community.  Just this last month you have invited friends to your bevies, coveys, hometeams and Bible studies.  You have fed the precious women of the Christian Women's Job Corps. You have fed the crew that worked to build our new BAF stage. You have worked with the CCPD to clean up graffiti off of our streets and you are currently working alongside the ALS Association to raise funds and awareness for a disease that has touched someone we love.  Thank you for all that you do to reflect the love of Christ to those around you.  You are making a difference!
So blessed to be your servant,
Walk With Us For a Great Cause!

"...Women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly, like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies. And those who put others on the right path to life will GLOw like stars forever."

Fall Bible Studies Coming to a Close
We have been having some amazing times together studying God's Word. I have been praying and believing God for spiritual breakthroughs as we come to know Him more intimately, and He has been answering my prayers!

We have two weeks left in all three of the Bible studies located at the church, and our three "One on One with God" groups are going strong and will be finishing up later. I'm hearing great stories about you girls who are participating and I'm so thankful that God is speaking and moving in your lives!

Thank you so much for serving as Pastor Bil encouraged us to do last weekend in his message. You have cooperated to feed the crew that set up our new stage, and to feed the precious women at the Christian Women's Job Corps. Each time, there was more than enough food. I can't thank you enough, and I know the Lord is so pleased with your hearts of service and generosity! You are reflecting Christ beautifully! "We can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord, and as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him, reflecting His glory even more." 2 Corinthians 3.18

New Bible studies will start again in the spring, so if you missed out this semester, watch the blog for information about those new classes! Also, if you're interested in being a part of the Janes Discipleship Team, contact me at janesdiscipleship@yahoo.com!
Serving alongside other women is a great way to get connected at Bay Area and make new friends!

With a thankful heart,
