 CNC Women’s Small Group to Start Monday, November 16th

Naomi and Ruth StudyCNC women are good at loving on one other. We honor each other with parties, listen well to each other, and we go out on Sundays after church. We want to connect better with one another and this is shown by things like our involvement in small groups, Secret Sister, and the mentoring program we had a couple of years ago.

But is there a better way for us to connect? Can we connect with more intention? I say the answer is, “Yes.”

On Monday, November 16th, there will be a new study for women. The book is Face-to-Face with Naomi and Ruth: Together for the Journey.

“Through the story of Naomi and Ruth, women will discover the power of committing to one another for the journey of faith in a relationship based on mutual caring and sharing.

  • 2 small groups will begin on Monday, November 16th. One will be from 1:30-3pm. The other study will be from 7-8:30pm.
  • We’ll discuss chapter 1 (in class) on that date. It is a five-week study.
  •  The price for a book is $9.75 (through Amazon). It is $4.99 (plus tax) on Kindle.
  • I’ve ordered 8 books; so let me know today, if you’d like one. At present there is a back order on books.
  • Of course you can go to a local book store to pick up your copy.

If this goes well and there is interest, we will have a one-on-one mentoring program in 2016.

Contact me today, if you have any questions and to RSVP “YES.” JOIN us in this small group, it will be time well spent.

Benefits of Tea Drinking Seep Into Annual Missions Tea

I like cookies with tea. Both the cookies and the tea are Earl Grey based. I love the cookies layered with orange frosting. What is your favourite item to pair with tea?

I like cookies with tea. Both the cookies and the tea are Earl Grey based. I love the cookies layered with orange frosting. What is your favourite item to pair with tea?

There is no disputing that teas provide wonderful, even miraculous, health benefits. What are  some of the health benefits, you ask?

The white, green and herbal teas are said to help with the following . . .  Aging . . .  Nervous tension and stress . . .  Skin irritations like acne, eczema, and wrinkles, and . . .  Weight loss.

You certainly can drink tea all on your own and reap the above benefits. But, how much more fun to drink with a table full of friends (or soon to become friends).

On Saturday, March 14th, 11am-1pm, Cordova Neighborhood Church will have 12 tables full of ladies and tea for our annual missions tea. We will start with the worship portion of the tea. This includes music, prayer, and time with our speaker, Marcia Braum.

Then we will move into Rudat Hall and have tea and appetizers (provided by each guest for their own table).

At the end of our TEA we won’t be . . . 

  • looking younger
  • have nicer skin
  • skinnier

But I bet we can say we feel . . .

  • more connected to one another
  • excited about what God is doing in Missions
  • this was a satisfying and fun way to spend the afternoon

YOUR TURN . . . Sign up TODAY by leaving a comment below or call the church office: 635-5992. . . . Which one is your favourite health benefit?

Monkey’s Morning Tea and CNC’s Annual Tea Are Rituals to NOT Miss

Come to this Tea and get pampered by your table hostess. You'll also learn about how Missions impacts our world.

Come to this Tea and get pampered by your table hostess. You’ll also learn about how Missions impacts our world.

Does your morning include a unique ritual? For some, like the monkey in the video below, tea is a necessary part of the morning.

And for some ladies, CNC’s Annual Missionary Tea is a necessary part of the Spring. Like this monkey, we will be offered a delicious brew, many choice foods, and even affection. However, there will be no grooming or jumping on rickshaws.

Take action today.

  • Sign up today as a guest  for the tea on Saturday, March 14th. Reply to this post or call me at the church office (635-5992).
  • Think about what tea-food item you’ll bring for your table of ladies. Your table hostess will co-ordinate this.
  • Watch this video for grins.

Which Tea is NOT for Human Consumption? This Won’t be Served at CNC’s Annual Tea (Feb. 8)

Sign up as a "guest" or "hostess." We only need 4 more hostesses.

Sign up as a “guest” or “hostess.” We only need 4 more hostesses.

Which one of the following teas does NOT promote health for the body?

  • White
  • Green
  • Compost
  • Herbal

If you guessed compost tea, you would be correct. Compost tea is a tea for the garden.

It is decomposed, nutrient-rich organic matter that is then recycled as fertilizer … soil conditioner, natural pesticide, erosion control, and landfill cover.

SIGN UP TODAY to be part of CNC’s Annual Tea.

  • No Compost Tea Served.
  • It is Saturday, February 8, 1-3 pm at CNC.

NOTE: If you are thinking about being a hostess, I can email you the details.

Advice For A Successful Retreat Experience

l;ak;lk;l

Read this post and pick only a couple of things to implement. The idea isn’t to see how much you accomplish, but to have an enriched experience.

Have you been to a women’s retreat before? If you have, then you know that many first-time ladies are nervous. The following list of ideas can aid anyone in having a successful retreat.

Spiritual Preparation

Listen—How God speaks to you one day might be different from how He speaks to you on another day.  Sometimes God’s message will come through loud and clear; sometimes it will be a just a whisper.  The point is to listen!

  • Expect God the Father to do something in your life this weekend.
  • Open yourself up to God’s promptings.
  • Spend time after each session in meditation, prayer, and honest talk with others.

Personal Preparation

Not everybody grows at the same speed; that’s okay—The reality is that you need to concentrate on your growth and let others be responsible for their own growth.

  • Relax. Be yourself. You are already accepted. You have a role and a reason for being here. In fact, our Father meant for you to be here.
  • Find the time to contemplate and to write your response(s) to each session.
  • Write a letter before the retreat (to yourself) and do a self-evaluation after the retreat. 

Relational Preparation

This is a perfect opportunity to build relationships—Between family, work, church, school, and ministry, there’s never enough time to devote to your girlfriend relationships. It’s important to develop a strong network of healthy relationships. Aren’t you glad you’ll have the chance to do that at retreat.

  • Spend time with a woman or women you don’t know at all or very well
  • Find a prayer partner for the weekend.
  • Be respectful of one another’s feelings and thoughts—keep confidences, don’t judge, and believe the best about one other.

Tasty Tidbits…

Saturday Free Time—from noon to 3:55pm (Saturday PM session starts at 4:00 pm sharp!)

  • Have fun.
  • Be a good sport.
  • Be open to God’s leading.
  • Do something you’ve never done before.

Your Turn . . . What would you add to this list?

NOTE: Pam and I reduced two pages of ideas into one page and rearranged them to fit 4 categories. We then included this page in the notebook we gave the women for this year’s retreat. I hope you find at least one idea helpful. Thanks for your help, Pam.
