SAMMYS Morning
Wednesdays, January 17 – April 25
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). 

This circle for women will read and discuss the SAMMYS curriculum, Divine Conversations, a series of lessons studying prayer.  Each week includes a stand-alone lesson taught to the whole group, and then discussion in smaller circles.  This study will examine ten divine conversations with people like Hannah, Nehemiah, Jonah, Jesus and more. Participants will see how God creates, renews, establishes, and fulfills His will through close communion with His people. Through this close look at God’s interactions with these individuals, participants will be inspired and encouraged, and compelled to pursue Him more fervently.

The outcome of our days on earth, if we boil it down, will be determined by our relationship with God. The more access we give to Him in our lives and the greater effort we make to seek Him daily, the more fulfilling our lives will be. When we embark on our journey with God, we grow to know Him, and increasingly reflect Him as we are transformed by His presence.

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 “Women” under Categories, select “SAMMYS AM”, and sign up! The book containing the lessons and discussion questions costs $20. You can purchase it online HERE or order one at your first meeting. (Note: as of 1/4/18 the curriculum was not yet available – coming soon.)

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.

 

SAMMYS Evening 
Wednesdays, January 24 – April 25
6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Cedarbrook Community Room
Leaders: Joyce Johnson
 

This circle for women will read and discuss the SAMMYS curriculum, Because of Christ, a series of lessons based on the book of Ephesians in the Bible.  Each week includes a stand-alone lesson taught to the whole group, and then discussion in smaller circles.  This lesson series will focus on what we have and what we can do – because of Christ. Knowing our true identity that comes when Jesus is our Lord, is a topic the apostle Paul taught on regularly to the early christian church. And how timeless still is the question: “Who Am I in Christ?” This lesson series will be encouraging and challenging as you get to know the book of Ephesians and begin to understand the vastness of God’s love for us and His intent for who we are
to become…because of Christ.

This circle for women will meet for 4 weeks to read and discuss The Women of Easter, by Liz Curtiss Higgs.  The group will view portions of the movie, The Passion of Christ, by Mel Gobson, before breaking into smaller circles for discussions of the weekly readings.

The Women of Easter is Bible study for the Lenten season, exploring the stories of three women who played a vital role in the life and ministry of Jesus, as well as in the events of that first Holy Week that first Easter.

With unforgettable insights and powerful life application for today’s women, Liz Curtis Higgs delves into the biblical text to help us view Easter through the eyes of three women named Mary, each of whom has a life-changing encounter with Jesus: Mary of Bethany, who prepares the way for the Lord’s burial when she anoints His feet and fills the air with her perfume; Mary of Nazareth, who remains by His side from His first breath to His last, her loyalty unwavering; and Mary Magdalene, delivered of seven demons, who bravely supports her Teacher through His darkest hours, then proclaims the glorious news of His resurrection.

You can purchase the book on Amazon for $13.49.  To join this circle, login to inFellowship, search for “Women” under Categories, select “Women of Easter” and sign up!

To register your child or children for childcare online, go to this inFellowship FORM, and follow the steps. Childcare for the all 4 weeks of the discussion is $15 per child or $20 per family. 

Scholarships are available for both the book and childcare – just mention your need to the leader when you sign up inFellowship.
