“It’s a Sister Thing”

Join 200+ women at Intentional Sisterhood 2018

The theme this year, Committed to Him – for such a time as this

In the books of Esther and Ruth, we see the commitment of two women who demonstrate what it means to follow God’s leading for a greater purpose.  What did you have to leave behind to serve, seek or find Jesus like we see in Ruth’s story?  And like Esther, how has God called you at this time in history to follow and serve Him?

Scriptures:

But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” Ruth 1:6

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14

We hope to fellowship with you on Saturday, February 24, 2018

There is always a lot going on the day of the Event but, central to everything is PRAYER and our prayer room will help give you that time away from the conference to pray. Whether in solitude or with some sisters in the Faith you will have an opportunity to spend time in prayer. The Prayer Room is open to anyone and everyone attending this event. You are welcome to come and go freely and to stay in the prayer room as long as you like.
