2017 SUMMER STUDY
Suzanne Stelling, Director of Women's Ministries, has written and is teaching the study for the summer, "Encounters"; we arestudying what happens when men and women encounter God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. It is a 5-week class (June 14-July 19, but skipping July 5), 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Chapel and again 6:30-8:00 p.m. in B203. Nursery is available with a reservation for both classes; there will be a class for elementary-age children during the morning session. Register here.

Women's Ministries Internship is a 12-week intensive training program for the women of CSPC. The goal of the internship is to equip women leaders in our church to fulfill their God-given calling. Interns work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm for the duration of the program. They receive in-depth teaching on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, the metanarrative of Scripture, theology, counseling, world and local missions, disciplines, sexuality and prayer. Teaching is done through readings, videos, guest speakers and conversation with Suzanne and Rebekah. An intern needs to be open to being poured into by Suzanne and Rebekah and willing to learn and listen to God's call in her life. Interns will present a final project. Interns also attend an overnight retreat at the conclusion of the program. The next class of interns will be this fall. Those dates are August 21-November 15 (do not meet during Knox Co fall break). Our spring 2018 class dates are January 29-April 25 (do not meet during Knox Co spring break). If interested in applying for an internship, click here for the application. Contact Rebekah with any questions.
