Workshop Descriptions

Workshop #1: Developing Helpful Devotional Habits (Colleen Bundy)

Would you like to be encouraged in your devotional walk? Jen Wilkin says that "we must make a study of our God: what He loves, what He hates, how He speaks and acts. We cannot imitate a God whose features and habits we have never learned." But how can we know God better? What daily habits increase our love for our Savior? What practices really matter when it comes to being more like God? If you're looking for scriptural motivation, inspiring testimonies, and helpful encouragement, join us as we explore this topic. Let's cheer one another on as we endeavor to be like Mary in the middle of our Martha worlds. 

Workshop #2: Loving Others Through Hospitality (Jeanne Keck)

Being hospitable to the family of God is an outward expression of loving one another.  In 1 Timothy 5:10, hospitality is one of the good works that characterize a godly woman. In Greek, the word has the meaning of being friendly to strangers. But as C.H. Spurgeon says, “Hospitality is service, not performance. Fellowship has the priority, each meal need not be an ego trip or grand production that wears to a frazzle.” Come learn what it means to extend yourself outside your comfort zone and be an encouragement to others. Be challenged with practical ways to share what God has given you, without grudging or grumbling at your expense or trouble. Let’s learn to give freely what we have freely received and love one another through hospitality! 

Workshop #3: Establishing Spirit-Impacting Family Traditions (Virginia Arnold)

"Tradition" is handing down information, beliefs, and worldview from one generation to another by word of mouth and by regular repetition of practice, example, and celebration. It is often the glue that binds families together over generations. Although traditions greatly differ between families and can be impacted by ethnicity, size, gender, financial means, and past experiences in life and health, traditions can be a powerful means of providing families with joy, security, teaching opportunities, and ways to express our love to each other. They can also help us preserve past memories and provide a framework for retaining memories for the future. Join us for this workshop as we explore how a family's faith can and should impact its family traditions. We'll also share some ideas for some spiritually-effective traditions that you can prayerfully consider implementing with your own unique family. 

Workshop #4: Developing Diverse Friendships (Ashley Rush)

Perhaps when we consider our “community,” we think of fellowship with friends who have everything in common with us. We easily gravitate towards people that are like us—same age, same personality, same life stage, etc. Is it possible to have community and fellowship without these basic commonalities? Consider that Scripture is calling us to reach beyond the obvious similarities. Are all my friends at the same mile marker on the path of life? Do I have relationships with people older/younger than me? Do I reach out to those in a different life stage than me? We’d love to have ladies of all ages join as we consider Scriptural examples and practical illustrations of how to pursue multigenerational and varied-life-phased friendships.

Workshop #5: Compartir Tu Fe / Sharing Your Faith (Pam Freeman, session in Spanish)

Sabes que es importante compartir tu fe con otros. Quieres compartir tu fe. Tienes la intención de compartir tu fe. Pero, algo te detiene. ¿Tienes miedo? ¿Estás ocupada? ¿Tienes apatía? En este taller proveeremos instrucción y ayudas prácticas para aprender a compartir el Evangelio con otros.

You know it is important to share your faith with others. You want to share your faith. You intend to share your faith. But something stops you. Are you afraid? Are you too busy? Are you, perhaps, a little apathetic? This workshop will provide instruction and practical helps in learning to share the Gospel with others.
