Indian Land, South Carolina
Tuesdays: July 7, August 4, September 1, October 6, November 3, December 1

Come empty, be filled … with food, fun, fellowship and faith.

To help women connect in a deeper way with God, each other, and themselves (see Matthew 22:37-39).

What is Teacups?

This is a monthly gathering of women with the purpose of connecting in three ways:

1) Social Connection – A grown-up tea party! A place where women can talk, laugh and enjoy just being together while also enjoying yummy drinks and treats.

2) Deeper Connection – Storytelling! One woman each month will share her personal story with the group.

3) Spiritual Connection – Teacup swap! Each woman will bring a teacup and will place a personal prayer request inside of it. At the end of the evening, every woman will take home someone else’s teacup and prayer request and will pray for that woman over the next month.

If you would like to take part, please register and you will be contacted by a teacup ministry leader.

Tuesdays
September 15 – November 17, 2015

Join Women of the Word this fall for a Bible study titled, Beholding and Becoming. We believe it is essential to become who we have been created to be – like Christ, our truest identity! Be a part of this journey to know God better and seek a more accurate and intimate understanding of the Lord. Our prayer is that as we become more deeply acquainted with Him and experience the joy of “beholding” Who God really is, we will enter into the transformational process of “becoming” who we truly are. For scripture tells us: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Class fee is $40* and includes materials. Advance registration is required.

Women of the Word – Wednesday

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Women
Wednesday, Sep 16, 2015 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Wednesdays
September 16 – November 18, 2015
January 13 – March 16, 2016
(This class is also offered on Tuesday nights.)

Join Women of the Word this fall for a Bible study titled, Beholding and Becoming. We believe it is essential to become who we have been created to be – like Christ, our truest identity! Be a part of this journey to know God better and seek a more accurate and intimate understanding of the Lord. Our prayer is that as we become more deeply acquainted with Him and experience the joy of “beholding” Who God really is, we will enter into the transformational process of “becoming” who we truly are. For scripture tells us: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18). 

Class fee is $40* and includes materials. Advance registration is required. Childcare is available by registration.

Leader: Lizzie Crutchfield


* Online price includes a convenience fee of $1.06.

Study of Acts Part 1: Jesus' Witnesses, Empowered by His Spirit

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus
Thursday, Sep 17, 2015 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Thursdays, September 17 – November 19

Luke’s first account was his gospel in which he recorded all that Jesus began to do and teach. His second account we call Acts, or the Acts of the Apostles, in which Luke recorded what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the gospel. Learn how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and from their examples, how you too can witness to others. Stand in awe of the power of God in believers to endure persecution and suffering for the cause of Christ and embrace His power in your life. Be encouraged by the results of faithful servants holding forth truth in a dark world; watch as the church grows numerically, geographically, and culturally.

Leader: Billie Ferrone

Materials: $20 (Online price includes a convenience fee of 70¢.)
