Thank you Lord for giving Janes such a fruitful beginning to the 2009-2010 ministry year! And thank you for all of the wonderful leaders who made See Jane Go Fall Kick-Off Party and Janes EXPO 2009 so successful! I have the privilege to serve alongside some amazing, godly, hard-working women who love you and love to serve you.
If you didn't make it to EXPO last Sunday, or didn't have time to stop by the tables but still want to sign up, be sure to visit our blog and find out more about all of these Janes ministry teams:
See Jane Serve Team - Serving in the church - office, hospitality, computer work, welcoming new women into the church, etc
See Jane Connect Team - Women Only Hometeams
See Jane Grow - Bible Studies
See Jane Reach - Community Outreach
See Jane Glo - Event planning (including Glo Conference Preparations)
Just a reminder that Bible Studies begin next week, so you need to contact alene@alenesnodgrass.com if you would like to join so she can get your books ordered and ready for you! Let her know if you have any questions or call us at the church at 361-993-5900 ext. 107.
If you feel nervous about joining one of our ministry teams, remember that you don't have to "have it all together" in order to be a part of Janes. Even your leaders do not have it ALL together. We are all on a journey with Jesus, gradually getting to know Him better and becoming more Christ-like, step-by-step. Most of all, our desire for you is that you take YOUR next step of obedience, whatever that is. Let your heart listen to what Jesus says in the book of Mark 5.36: "Don't be afraid; just believe." Believe in the good plans He has for you! And if he's calling you to join your first Bible study or hometeam, or if he's calling you to serve others in some new way, follow Him and He'll show you the next step to take.
I love you and can't wait to see God's plans for us unfold over the next few months.

It's Not Too Late 


Hey gals!  Our new fall studies kick off October 5th and 6th. If you didn't get a chance to stop by the See Jane Grow table at the Expo, that's alright.  Registration is still open. This fall is proving to be a very exciting season among our girls. 

Below are the descriptions of the three classes that will be offered. All studies are $25 for the semester and payable at the first two classes. Email me if you'd like to join us so I can order you a book. Also, childcare is provided with a reservation. If childcare is needed contact Virginia at
mrsvdwilliamson@yahoo.com and let her know the ages of your children. 


I truly can't wait to see what God is going to do these next six weeks! 

Monday Evening, 6:30-8:30pm, BAF Element Room upstairs

Me, Myself, and Lies~A thought Closet Makeover
A study for women to encourage them to clean out the junk in their thoughts and replace these hidden negative thoughts and failures with positive truths from God's Word. Author Jennifer Rothschild shares practically and helpfully from her own life and from Scripture to show how every woman can turn her words, and her life, around for good.
Leader: Paula Powell 


Tuesday Mornings, 9:45-11:45am, BAF Children's Area
EnJOY~A Thirst-Quenching Look at Philippians
A women's study offering an enduring biblical perspective on the meaning and source of true joy. Participants will learn that the reality of everyday life can erode the feeling of happiness - unless a foundation of joy is already in place. And such a foundation comes from seeing life through God's perspective. Author Tianne Moon leads participants in a verse-by-verse look at Philippians where they will discover keys to the joy of daily living in Jesus Christ.
Leader: Lauren Gomez 


Tuesday Mornings, 9:45-11:45am, BAF Children's Area

I'm a Fixer-Upper~A Day-by-Day Remodeling Guide
Do you feel like a fixer-upper? Are you looking for a renewed sense of self or a total spiritual makeover? If so, author Alene Snodgrass' soul-searching study is just what you need. This book will help renovate your days, transform your heart, and light-up your life as you journey with Jesus through the rooms of your home.
Leader: Alene Snodgrass
