Taste and see that the Lord is good!

Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in Him! Psalm 34:8

Our theology, what we believe about God, impacts every area of our relationship with Him.  What we believe about Who He is and His intentions towards us colors how we worship, how we pray, how we repent, how we obey, how we enjoy Him!  Does our theology line up with Who He’s revealed Himself to be?  That’s the question we all must address.

The heart of the women’s ministry at APC is to encourage our women to grow in their understanding of and belief in who God clearly reveals Himself to be through His Word.  Knowing Him and trusting Him, we find ourselves to be fully forgiven, fully loved, and fully invited into what He’s doing in the world around us, both large and small.

To that end, the women’s ministry is committed to offering our women opportunities to gather in study and in community throughout the year in order to equip and encourage each other in our faith.  We believe that the more we taste these unchanging truths which transform lives, the more we delight in and bring glory to our God!

We invite you to come and see!  Taste His goodness with us!

New Women’s Thursday Bible studies begin January 11.

Ladies, as we continue with our theme of Unfailing Hope, we invite you to pray about joining the Thursday women’s Bible study, beginning January 11. We will be going through the book of Hebrews, using Jen Wilkin’s study Better.  As we “fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith”, we’ll see Him as the better Word, the better high priest, the better sacrifice,  etc.

The morning study meets weekly from 10-11:30am. Childcare is provided. The evening study is a hybrid class: the first Thursday of each month we meet in person and the remaining weeks we meet via Zoom, from 7-8:30pm.

Please rsvp to Lynn Streett at [email protected] in order to receive the Zoom link or if you have any questions.

Reading in Community – Summer 2023!

1.    Love Walked Among Us: Learning to Love Like Jesus, by Paul E. Miller – Romans 13: 8 & 10 show us that the only outstanding debt we have is to love one another. I call it the continuing debt of grace. Love is the obedience we are called to. Do you love the way Jesus loves you?  As we feast on the love Jesus shows, we are changed by His Spirit. Our love begins to look more like His.  Enjoy spending the summer learning to love like Jesus!

2.   God Does His Best Work with Empty, by Nancy Guthrie – Do you reach the summer feeling depleted, in need of being recharged? God knows! May this book not only refresh you; may you see that He is more than able and willing to fill up your emptiness.

3.   Tim Keller’s books and sermons – Many of us are revisiting our favorite Keller books or sermon series in light of his recent death. Some of the books I have loved: Forgive: Why Should I and How Can I? helps us to see how counter-cultural even the idea of forgiveness has become. Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God’s Work provides a wonderful perspective on the meaning and usefulness of work. The Songs of Jesus walks you through the Psalms in a year. His series Generosity is sure to bless and encourage you. His sermons can be found (for free) at Gospel in Life.  Be challenged, be encouraged, be blessed!

4.     The Six Conversations, by Heather Holleman –We all want enriching relationships, don’t we? Start a relational revival by learning how to create community through the art of conversational connection! Don’t miss Heather’s list of 100 conversation starters!

5.   Finally, we invite you to consider going back through the Meditations from Summer 2020 (found right below!) as a means of refreshment.
