"Maps Class made me realize that even though I didn't know God, He was there."

"Facilitating the Maps Class, I get a front row seat to see what God can do. Over time, He completely remodels lives!"

THURSDAY
STUDY GROUP

At Thursday Study Group, we dive deep to grow in community. God designed us for relationship with Him and with others. We gather weekly to discuss the Bible, to listen to one another, and to learn and develop spiritual practices. We share our lives and support one another in our unique journeys with Jesus.  

"When I began attending the Thursday women's study, it had never occurred to me that Jesus wanted to spend time with me. 'Time With Jesus' is a regular part of our Thursday morning and now something I look forward to. This time has led me to a closer relationship with Him and an eagerness to hear what He may want to say to me."

--- Thursday Study Group participant

"I enjoy being with women of various ages. Friendships develop as we learn together and share honestly about our lives and faith journey."

--- Thursday Study Group participant

SINGLE MOMS
FAMILY CAMP

Linda raised her children as a single mom and has a deep desire for other single moms to experience God's loving presence in their journeys. At Single Moms Family Camp, single moms and their families enjoy a weekend of fun, laughter, and creating family memories in a beautiful setting filled with God's love.

 

SMFC is offered in collaboration with Hope Shores Bible Camp. 

"This is the place where a camp counselor taught my daughter to fish. This is the place where someone else does the cooking. This is the place where people not only pray for us, but help us carry our luggage, loan us towels, and drive the boat. It's the one time of year I don't feel like I'm doing this all alone. What a gift that is!"

--- Single Moms Family Camp participant
