International Connections Mapping

The International Connections team will be leading “mapping” of Durham on Saturday, October 4, at 9:30am in the Welcome Center. This is finding out what ethnic and cultural groups are in Durham so we can more effectively minister to them. We will actually go out onto the streets and do this work as small individual teams. No prior experience is needed to do this, just a willing heart. No RSVP is needed, just show up. Questions contact Ron Halbrooks at ronhalbrooks@gmail.com.

Women’s Fellowship Gathering

“Beauty and the Beast:  Reflecting the Beauty of Christ in Today’s Modern Culture”
     “I’m not pretty enough, skinny enough, tall enough, young enough or fashionable enough.”
“I don’t care what I look like or what I wear.  Whom do I need to impress?”

We all struggle with self-image, so which attitude is right or is the answer somewhere in the middle?  Julia Lee will address what God says in his word about true beauty and how to make the beauty of Christ our first priority in the care of our bodies, in our fashion, and in other areas of life where beauty for its own sake tends to be a temptation.

Thursday, October 9, 2014        6:30 – 9:00 pm       Morgan Hall
Come hungry – delicious food!
Plus, a fun fashion show has been planned for you!
Bring your daughters age 11 and up!
