April Meeting Is a Special One!

I'm pleased to be able to announce we have a special speaker for April's meeting. There is a popular Bible Study on Tuesday morning and the main teacher is Kathy Bricel. She is passionate and gracious and her teaching is encouraging. The sessions are recorded and available to listen to online at Grace of Christ Church here. The Biblestudy is called the Spirit-led Life.
 
Kathy has kindly agreed to encourage us with a message entitled "Seasons of Solitude".
Here's a short bio:
 
Kathy Bricel is on the other side of homeschooling. Her children are now in their twenties and out on their own. But much of her faith and their family culture was developed during the eight years they homeschooled their three boys. "Homeschooling wasn't at the forefront of my mind. First my husband asked me to consider it, and I thought, 'Are you crazy?' Then I knew the Lord was asking me, and I knew if God was asking, He had something good in it. So our family began the journey of homeschooling. It was during this time of homeschooling, that I felt like the one being schooled. God used it to disciple me by bringing me into a season of solitude, where my focused changed, my soul was healed and my needs were met in Him.
 
All homeschool parents are invited, as well as teenagers. We are a friendly group and would love to have you join us- as a matter of fact if you are just curious about homeschooling, you are invited!
 
April:
The Foursquare Church on  40th    6:30pm
Coffee and tea are served, please bring a plate of goodies if you are able, such as crackers and cheese, fruit, cookies, nuts, or other easy food.
