Several times a year a number of people provide lunch for the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, a residence in Decatur where cancer patients (and often a caregiver) stay while they are receiving treatment. We converse with the residents who join us, and while they really appreciate our visit, we come away more encouraged than they do! Our next visit will be sometime in early summer, watch the bulletin for updates.
For more information contact Sandra Clements, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In June we had a Ladies’ Coffee Night where the only agenda was to get to know each other. We enjoyed delicious coffee, snacks and a talented guitarist who played quiet background music.
In early December we had a Craft Night where some learned to knit, other made Christmas ornaments and gift tags and others worked on their own crafts from home (even a quilt!).
Stay tuned for news of our next social! For more information contact Paulette Lilley, email@example.com.
Our first set of small groups kicked off in the fall. These groups give women an opportunity to fellowship and encourage each other in their Christian walk. Groups meet for about 1 1/2–2 hours for about 6 months. Then members will have the choice of staying together as a group or mixing it up and joining another group. The purpose is for the women at CBC to build relationships, getting to know each other beyond simple Sunday morning hellos. The next groups will be forming after the Spring 2018 retreat.
For questions about Small Groups please contact Jennifer Hinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (678) 949-6546.
2018 Women's Retreat
This year's retreat in mid-March was reported by many as "the best yet!" We learned and laughed and loved being with each other. Julie White, this year's speaker, was engaging, funny and inspiring–encouraging us to run the race God has given us to run; to grow in our knowledge of God and our relationship with Him.
The four sessions were recorded and are available HERE. Disclaimer: Rudimentary recording equipment was used (IPad) so bits of the audio are not full volume, or quite clear, etc.
Next year's retreat will be held in Toccoa again, at the Georgia Baptist Conference Center, on the weekend of March 15-17. Mark your calendars now, you won't want to miss it! We will update you as more details become available.
