Ladies’ Retreat 2020

Friday, October 2 through Sunday October 4, 2020 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.  If you would like to go on retreat next year, watch please make a $20 deposit so I can secure accommodations before they fill up.  I will take the first eleven who sign up.  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 
Tuesday Mornings
Our Ladies’ Bible study classes resume beginning Sunday, January 19 and Tuesday, January 21.  On Sundays we meet in the home of Elaine Nasworthy at 6pm.  On Tuesdays we meet at 9am at the church in room 206/207.  We are continuing our study of “Bad Girls of the Bible” by Liz Curtis Higgs.  This is a 10-week study and we are half way through it.  Each lesson, however, is a stand alone lesson so this would be a great time to jump in.  Simply purchase the book on your own and pick up at the lessons entitled, “Generous to a Fault.”

Every first Saturday of the month ladies just like you, ladies who are of varying levels of creativity, meet together to discuss a sermon or Bible study lesson that recently impacted their life.  Then we have fun interpretting that back to God in the form of art.  Some draw, some paint, some use napkins or cut-outs, some trace, some copy, but all have a great time.  We are making lovely art togther while discussing God’s word.  Won’t you join us?  If you are interested, please contact Jo Anne Shaffer at JShaffer@MyrtleLake.org or call her at 813-949-5516, ext. 108.
