Ladies’ Retreat 2019

Friday, October 4 through Sunday October 6, 2019 we will retreat to lovely Lake Yale as a group of women who seek hard after God.  We will return refreshed and energized to do the work set out before us.  The 2019 Retreat is all filled up, but if you would like to go on retreat next year, watch this space for further details are made available as soon as we know them.  2020 is just around the corner!  Please see Jo Anne Shaffer if you have any questions or email her at JShaffer@MyrtleLake.org.   

Sunday Nights
Beginning September 8 at 6pm in the home of Elaine Nasworthy we will begin “Resilient Faith” by Mary Jo Sharp.  This is a 6-week study.  The cost of the book is $9.99 or $4.99 for an e-book.  
Tuesday Mornings
Beginning September 10 at 9am at the church (room 206/207) we will begin the Study of the Gospel of Mark;  The Jesus We’re Aching For by Lisa Harper.  The cost of the book is just $13.99.     
Our Bible Journaling Core Group meets the first Saturday of every month to discuss a sermon or teaching or devotional that really spoke to each of us over the last several weeks and then we’ll journal a Bible page about that passage.  For more information, please call Jo Anne Shaffer at 813-949-5516, ext. 108.
