This circle for women will meet for 5 sessions to view a video Bible study on the book, Present Over Perfect, by Shauna Niequist. The group will break into smaller circles to discuss the topic, using the Study Guide and reflections on the weekly readings.
Shauna invites you on a journey that changed her life. She will help you begin leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection. She offers an honest account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us.
The study guide includes first thoughts, video notes, group discussion questions, practicing presence reflections, and solo work for you to complete between sessions. Sessions include:
- Pain Points
- The Roles We Play
- Yes, And No
- Unflashy, Unspectacular, Good
- Living the Love
You can purchase the STUDY GUIDE on Amazon for $7.39. The BOOK is optional and can be purchased for $12.50. To join this circle, login to inFellowship, search for “Books/Bible Discussions” under Categories, select “Present” and sign up!

For Women Only: Wednesday Mornings

9:15 am – 10:45 am
Cedarbrook Community Room
Leaders: Cathy Jenson & Erin Bushendorf.
Childcare is available for $30/child if registered (see details below).
These circles will read and discuss the SAMMYS curriculum Esther: God Doesn’t Call You To Hang Up on You, a series of lessons based on the book of Esther. There are ten lessons in this series, and the group will meet for 12 sessions. Each week has a stand-alone lesson taught to the whole group, and then discussion in smaller circles, so each time you attend, you will learn and grow through the teaching and connection with other women.
SAMMYS circles have an atmosphere where genuine friendships are shaped, where SAMMYS Sisters learn what Christ’s love looks and feels like through prayer and sharing during discussion time. The studies are comprehensive and understandable, even if someone is unfamiliar with the Bible, yet the basic truths are challenging enough to motivate the seasoned Christian to become more Christ-like. The curriculum addresses a woman’s whole circle of influence and challenges her to impact her corner of the world.
To join this circle, go to inFellowship, search for “Book/Bible Discussion” under Categories, select “SAMMYS Morning”, and sign up! The book containing the lessons and discussion questions costs $12. You can purchase it online and pick it up on the first day you attend.
To purchase a book and/or to register your child for childcare online, go to this inFellowship FORM, and follow the steps. Childcare for the full length of the discussion is $30 per child or $50 per family. If you prefer to pay for childcare weekly, the cost is $4/child or $6/family. Scholarships are available for books and childcare – just mention your need to the leader when you sign up inFellowship.
