Seeking a way to connect with other women in the church? Consider Women's Bible Study, featuring small, intimate groups that study God's word, pray and form lasting relationships in Christ. This fall Women's Bible Study will offer not one, but two interesting study options. Thursday morning groups will study Not Alone, a study on friendships. Join us as we dig into scripture to explore the theology, characteristics and formation of long-lasting friendships and learn from Biblical friendships such as Ruth and Naomi's. For more information contact Della Hoag or Julie Hines. To register online and pay for your book for the Thursday morning class, click here.
Monday evening groups will study I Peter, A Living Hope in Christ, a study on the teachings of Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ. Peter challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to our future inheritance through Christ. For more information contact Joanie Brown.

We want to fill you in on some information about next summer's camping trip. This year's trip will feature a change in location to Daroga State Park. Daroga State Park is on Lake Entiat between Wenatchee and Chelan. We are super excited about the beautiful group site they have and decided it was worth trying this year instead of booking all individual sites at Lake Chelan State Park. The location is only 20 minutes from Chelan, so Slidewaters will still be part of our annual trip.
Since this is a group site and there is only one reservation, we don't need commitments from individual families until spring when we start our food planning. Please think about whether or not your family would like to be part of this fun tradition and look for more information in April. We look forward to camping with you!
Your camping committee: Kristine Jung, Leah LaFrombois, Kara Mendes, Christy Johnson, Emma Skjonsby and Angie Purcell.
