The Opportunity of Loss

Location: Rooms 620-623 (6th Floor)

Speaker: Connie Musselman

Knowing and Trusting God Tenderly & Sincerely Through the Opportunity of Loss

Many times God adds a burden to our lives in order to lighten our load because we run straight to Him.

Edith Schaeffer said, “WE CANNOT KNOW WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENT OF OUR LIVES. Its arrival won’t be announced with a blast of silver horns or the blare of an orchestra’s full crescendo. Our most important moment can come at a time when no one but God and Satan are aware of it, when our response to the Lord is one which wins at once a battle that could have left a horrible tear or hole in the fabric of history.” 

Shock, loss, illness, disappointment, criticism and other human attack can turn out to be the most important opportunities in life we are ever going to have to honestly love God and truly trust Him in a way which will bring Him great joy and defeat every plan of Satan. Connie will share her story of God’s presence and provision throughout her life as a preparation for being anchored to Him during her recent opportunity of breast cancer this past year. It is a testimony of the tenderness of our Living God to turn seeming loss into great gain.

Conversations with God

Location: Rooms 620-623 (6th Floor)

Speaker: Casey Hawley

Conversations with God: 15 Truths God Wants You to Know About Prayer

Conversations with God can be life-changing, lightning rod moments of need, or they can be the everyday talks a child has with a loving Father she adores. Both types of prayer as well as corporate prayer are the topics of September’s Genuine Wisdom. 15 Biblical principles of prayer, Scriptural examples and models, as well as practical how-to’s are part of this evening designed to deepen and broaden your prayer life. God's constancy, His very real presence, and His unfailing love and provision are highlighted in this time with Casey Hawley. Scripture underscores each example. The primary topic is prayer, but closely intertwined topics are God's unfailing trustworthiness and character.

Speaker: Teresa Skepple

The Challenges Of Biblical Womanhood

Alone with God

Location: Rooms 620-623 (6th Floor)

Speaker: Linda McEntire

"O Lord, in the morning You hear my voice; in the morning I direct my prayer to You and watch." Psalm 5:3 (ESV)

"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He departed and went out to a desolate place, and there He prayed." Mark 1:35 (ESV)

Quiet = a place and time where you can be still

Time = a regular and consistent time each day

What is a Quiet Time? A “quiet time” is a dedicated time each day set aside to connect with God.

  • to adore and praise Him
  • to study Scripture
  • to hear what He has to say
  • to allow His Word to renew our hearts and minds so that the Spirit of God can transform us.

Our goal as Christians is not just to know about God, but actually to know Him as one person knows another.  He is our Father, our Friend, our Comforter, our Guide, and our Lord.  Knowing Him in this way, talking with Him in this way, calls for responses of joy, of worship, of repentance and sorrow, of hope and expectation.  Knowing and loving God – that’s what quiet times are about. (© Redeemer Presbyterian Church)

On July 21, Linda McEntire will share some thoughts about what God has shown her concerning the “why” and the “how” for having a daily quiet time alone with God.  

This event is FREE to attend, and no registration is required. Bring your friends!

Thursday, January 21, 2016
7:00pm  8:30pm

Rooms 620-623 (6th Floor)

Guest Speaker: Tennyson Carden

If we are honest with ourselves and each other, most women will admit that they struggle with living comfortably in their own skin.  For some women this is a powerful conflict in their souls that defeats them everyday.  For others it is a little voice in the back of their heads that is loud at times and at other times is only a soft whisper of self-consciousness or timidness. Please join us as we have an honest discussion about our insecurities as women and the lies the world tells us everyday.  We will find peace for our souls as we are reminded of the truth of the Gospel and how it speaks to this powerful topic.

Genuine Gratitude - Don't Leave Home Without It

Rooms 620-623 (6th Floor)

Guest Speaker: Charlotte Travis

If you’ve ever tried to put something together without the instructions, you know that skipping a step can certainly harm the integrity of the work.  Often things aren’t as spiritually “put together” in our lives as they should be, because we are trying to live without that foundational step one of a genuinely grateful heart.  It is not something we put on, and wear ourselves out keeping up.  It bubbles up from a place of truth, rest, and security in Christ.  It is something He requires of us – not just for our good, but for the sake of those around us, and the Kingdom work He has for us.  Through testimony of the power of gratitude, as well as mistakes made, we will learn about the vital role gratitude plays in joyful and victorious living.

Do you ever feel that your time and energy are so consumed with your career and other demands that you do not have the time to spend with the Lord you wish you could? Or are you on the other end of the spectrum feeling unchallenged and unfulfilled in your career or home life and maybe even in your spiritual life? Have you figured out how to have a rich quiet time each day, to serve the Lord in your church, and share Christ with those you meet? A panel of four diverse women will share about these situations and answer your questions when we meet for Genuine Wisdom on October 15. Please come with questions and situations you are dealing with and hear from four women who have walked with the Lord for a long time and can share very different approaches to each situation.
