Uniquely His: Beloved Warriors Partnering To Bring God’s Kingdom On Earth As It Is In Heaven is a church-wide kick off for Women’s Ministries. This event will be Tuesday, August 22, 6:30-8:00 PM in the Chapel. Suzanne Stelling, Director of Women’s Ministries, is our speaker. Dessert and study booklet are included in your $5 registration. Register here. There will be no nursery because our nursery workers are invited!
Sign Up Sunday is August 27. This is a time that you may visit the Reception Hall where all the various groups and studies within Women’s Ministries will be set up and a representative from each will be available to any answer questions you have or get you registered to participate. They will be there after each service — first, Sunday school, and second. Stop by to see what all is available and what interests you.
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.
