At IF: Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF: Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees.

COMING SOON! Titus2 Mentoring
Titus2 Mentoring Women is a transforming discipleship journey for women who desire to grow deeper in their relationship with God. If you’re ready to take your next step in the adventure of faith, if you’re ready to be challenged and deepen your commitment to Christ—and do so with a loving community of women—then Titus2 is for you! Convenient monthly meetings, conducive to the group’s needs, make it flexible so women in all seasons and stages of life can participate.
One Mentor guides five to six women for 10 months in a small group setting. This Mentor helps nurture spiritual partnership, cultivate accountability and encourage development. Titus2 includes journaling, prayer, Bible study, scripture memory, and discussion of a relevant topic each month.
THE MENTOR: God’s Word is very specific about “older women equipping and training younger women” (Titus 2:3-5), encouraging them, challenging them and loving them. If you feel called to be a Mentor and would like more information about this opportunity to invest in the lives of women, please contact Terina, at email@example.com or Hester at firstname.lastname@example.org (Mentor applications are received September & Ocotober.)
THE MENTEE: If you’re a woman hungering for more depth and who desires to be mentored, please mark your calendars for one of the Mentee Informational Meetings: November 15th or 18th for 30 minutes following each service.
Mentee applications will be received starting November 15, 2018. Application deadline is January 15, 2018.
Cost ranges from $50-$150 depending on book choice.
