Women caring for women is the heart of our ministry. We are created for friendship with God and one another, and there is no better place to discover both of these than Village. You’ll find practical support, spiritual guidance and genuine acceptance to help you navigate life’s realities, responsibilities and relationships. Whether you participate in an ongoing Bible Study or Life Group or simply enjoy the company of other women hiking, quilting or at a special event, you’ll be revived and encouraged as you pursue the many roles God has given you.

Mirror for the Soul – book study
Cost $15 – Register here

Do you seek to grow? The focus of this study/life group is to give you tools to know yourself better to understand why we do the things we do and give us a guide to move forward, using the book Mirror for the Soul: A Christian Guide to the Enneagram by Alice Fryling. Our discussions will use Scripture to experience God’s grace more deeply through greater self-awareness and spiritual companionship.  We will gain a new perspective on our unique temperament so that we might know and extend God’s grace more fully, which includes both gifts and blind spots.  This will lead us into more authentic self-awareness, richer relationships and deeper places in the soul where we can worship God in truth and grace. Join us for this 12 week study. space is limited

Leaders: Chris Johnson  and Mary Roberts
