God Poured In - We Poured Out

It is hard to believe our Fall studies are over. It was an awesome six-weeks of learning and growing. We challenged each other and were filled to the brim as God poured out His blessings upon us.

As God poured into us, we couldn’t help but pour back out into the community. The Monday evening class filled box after Birthday Angel box for the children of the moms at the Women’s Shelter. The Tuesday morning classes’ filled box after Moving Out box for the women who able to move out of the shelter.

Thank you for Paula Powell and Lauren Gomez. Their talents and love are endless.

The girls brought in new items by the trollies full! Unbelievable.
Sorting and packing. We were so blessed to be helping out!

Needless to say, it was a very successful semester. We look forward to kicking off our Winter semester around the second week in January. Be on the lookout for more information and until then keep seeking Him and serving His people!

"Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better." ~ Colossians 1:10, NLT

Thank you girls for an awesome semester!
