Almost every day of the week, friends meet to study scripture and Christian faith in gatherings just for men, for women, and for mothers of younger and older children. Topics and facilitators vary as the Holy Spirit leads us, Email Rev. Rebecca DeBow (802-6202) if you need help finding the small group or study that’s right for you.
Seasons I on Monday (for mothers of babies and preschoolers) - 11:00-12:00 in the Tilson Room. (On the first Monday of the month Seasons I attends the Episcopal Church Women “ECW” luncheon at 11:30am)
Mark Batterson is pastor of a big church in Washington, DC. He writes very motivating books on prayer. Many Saint Luke’s mothers have read a little book called, Praying Circles around Your Children. Receive a free copy of the book and talk about it with friends in Seasons. Here’s a blurb from the back of the book: Batterson teaches how to create prayer lists unique to your family, claim God-inspired promises for your children, turn your family circle into a prayer circle, and discover your child’s life themes. And he not only tells you how; he illustrates why.” Children always need our prayers and reading this book with a group is great inspiration and guidance. Monday mornings at 10:30 in the Tilson Room.
