Conversation, Comfort, and Chocolate

February marks the middle month of winter so, like acknowledging the solstice, we ladies like to mark the middle of winter. After all, we are half way through the long dark nights, the forgotten resolutions and the need for coats, sweaters and gloves.
February!

It is the time to celebrate with the three C’s: conversation, comfort (food), and chocolate! This Tuesday, join your sisters in Sneed Hall at 7 p.m. for An Evening of Chocolate. Bring some chocolate of your choice and chat ‘n chew the evening away in fun and fellowship (and did we mention chocolate?).

For those whom chocolate is not an option, there will be other flavors of goodies available.
See ya there!

Save the Date

The planning team has been working for three years to get a nationally known speaker to come to Amarillo. We’ve met with major hurdles like the thousands of dollars it costs to get them, and the fact that Amarillo is too small of a city for them to spend time in. However, we have a chance on April 1 & 2 to host a simulcast of Women of Joy speaker, Priscilla Shirer. Please pray about this; that we can host it and that it will be a successful outreach to Amarillo.

 Appreciation Tea

A big thank you to Christy Gromowsky for hosting the Women’s Ministry Appreciation Tea. And a big thank you to all of you who volunteered to help out in our ministries or a women’s event.

We are so appreciative of your servant heart and of your helping hands. You are what makes everything work and you are showing others Christ through your good work.

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
