Bay Area Fellowship JANES

Building Christ-Centered Community Among Women 

Thanks to all of you, Expo 08 was a huge success and our JANES ministries are all off and running.  I am already hearing testimonies of the exciting things going on in our Bible studies, bevies, coveys and hometeams!  I know that God has great things in store for each and every one of you and I look forward to hearing how He moves in your hearts and lives over the next few months. 
 If you missed the Expo, it is not too late to get involved.  All of our groups are listed on our blog at www.bafjanes.blogspot.com.  You can visit each team for a list of events or you can click on "Get Involved" on the homepage for more info.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Clothes Closet 
JANES is looking to create a clothes closet ministry for women who are in need of clothing.  It is a dream of ours to be able to offer this service to the women of our community and we are praying that God would raise up a passionate leader for this task.  If you feel God is leading you to coordinate this effort, please contact Marta at martp26@yahoo.com.  This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet the needs of women in a very practical way.

5K Run/2M Walk
Christmas for the Children 
Hey Girls! It's time to get your bevy, covey, hometeam or Bible study to team up for a walk/run that will benefit the South Texas Children's Home.  The 4th Annual Christmas for the Children run/walk is a great way to build community within your group as well as give back to those in need.  Come join us for a day of fun that will benefit a worthy cause!

Join the JANES Leadership Team! 
Even though the JANES Expo has passed, opportunities are still available to create a ministry that is uniquely YOU!  If you have a passion to lead other women through a bevy or a covey, please let us know!  We are praying and believing that God will raise up women who are passionate about reaching our community.  If you have felt the nudge to get involved, step out of your comfort zone, and be a part of an amazing group of girls, please contact us!   For Info about Bevies (special interest groups and hometeams), contact April.  For Coveys (mission-minded groups), contact Marta. Event planning is a big part of the JANES ministry.  If you're interested in coordinating the happenings of the BAF women, contact Robin.  And if you have a love for God's word and a passion for teaching it, contact Daphne to find out how you can be on our Discipleship Team!
