"As we travel together the road of transformation in Christ -including the unfolding stages of Quest, Calling, Crisis and Communion - it is our soul friends who help us on the Jesus Journey, lovingly moving us forward, walking each other home. Whether you are surrounded by trusted soul friends, or you are lonely and longing for deep-spirited friends, this book is designed for every woman who wants to grow in faith and friendship." - Dr. Leslie Parrot
Soul Friends Gatherings
All women are invited to participate in our Soul Friends gatherings this summer. We will use the book “Soul Friends: What Every Woman Needs to Grow in her Faith” as a starting point for our conversations. But, whether you read the book or not, come to one or more of these gatherings to meet new friends, and experience deep meaningful conversations that will guide us in our faith journeys.

Our next topic: What Good is God? In Search of a Faith That Really Matters?
What good is God in a world where terrorists attack tourist sites in Mumbai, where women and children are sold into sexual slavery, and where six million people in South Africa alone suffer with HIV/AIDS? Does faith really matter when you're struggling with an addiction, or when you get laid off from your job and your home is in foreclosure? Philip Yancey travels the globe in search of an answer to a query posed the world over. His discoveries of redemption, hope, and grace provide evidence that faith really does make a difference, even when belief is severely tested.

Advent study The Good and Beautiful Life by James Bryan Smith

Study of Pilgrim's Progress
John Bunyan was a simple maker and mender of pots and pans who received very little education. In spite of that, he penned the most successful allegory ever written. Embark on a perilous journey with Christian, the lead character, from the City of Destruction to the luminous safe haven of the Celestial City. The journey will encourage you to "set your hope fully on the grace to be given you" amidst the obstacles of life.
