Small Groups

We recognize the life-giving value of being in community. Small groups offer a more intimate setting to connect with each other and be transformed by life-giving teaching, prayer and fellowship.

Abiding Women "Lioness arising" by lisa bevere

First and Third Saturdays 9:00 am Room 105

The lioness rises from her slumber, a magnificent image of strength, passion, and beauty.
Her mere presence commands the landscape, protects her young, and empowers the lion. In
groups, lionesses become a creative and strategic force to be reckoned with, acting as one to
change the world around them.

You too are a lioness.

In Lioness Arising, author and speaker Lisa Bevere offers the life and image of the lioness as a
fierce and tender model for women. Revealing the surprising characteristics of this amazing
creature, Lisa challenges women to discover fresh passion, prowess, and purpose.

Learn what it means to:
• be a stunning representation of strength
• fiercely protect the young
• lend your voice to the silenced
• live in the light and hunt in the dark
• raise a collective roar that changes everything

Packed with remarkable insights from nature and a rich depth of biblical references to lionesses, Lioness Arising is a call for women to rise up in strength and numbers to change their world. Consider joining Abiding Women the first and third Saturdays of the month at 9:00 am in the
downstairs room 105. Enjoy refreshments, fellowship, study and prayer. Lioness Arising begins Saturday, February 17, 2018. Call Eunice Mitchell,  503-208- 2109 or Marsha Vance, 503-423- 7230 for more information.
