Race day is Saturday!!! And I am excited! We have 112 participants signed up so far! 10 volunteers and 102 racers! We have about 10 extra shirts...so it is not too late to register! As of today we will clear over $1300!! That is a filter and a half for the missionaries and a scholarship and a piece for the JBA Scholarship Fund!
In other Women's Ministry news...We are thinking of expanding a mentor program after the first of the year. The study is called "A Woman After God's Own Heart" by Elizabeth George. We read the book a few years ago as part of our Book Club. Some folks liked it (basically just me) and some folks did not (the other 9 in the club...ha). But it is tried and true to guiding women in cultivating a closer relationship with Jesus and each other. It is a 12 to 24 week course depending on your speed of reading and the amount of other Discipleship Training you are participating in. We are doing it as a one on one program. You would need to meet weekly or as close to that as possible. The more you meet the more accountable you hold each other and the more you will benefit from the study. Ponder it and let me know if you would be interested. The pilot run has gone awesome! Personally, I have been blessed in ways I never imagined! It is a great way to build strong friendship bonds with another Christian woman striving to please God! Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Just send me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org)! We would love feedback from other churches that have tried this or would like to try it as well!
