women

Women are essential and so highly valued in the Lord's church! Jesus rejected the cultural notion that women were unimportant and taught the radical idea that everyone had value in The Kingdom (Galatians 3:28). Each and every person is part of God's plan for the fitting and joining together of The Body (Ephesians 4:16). Women at Laurel are the life force that keep every program running smoothly. At Laurel, there are many ways, big and small, for a woman of any age to have a role in spreading God's word, reaching those in need, caring for the flock, and thereby growing spiritually! Please join us!

Summary of the book:

Let us look to Jesus, the founder and perfecter or our faith (Heb. 12:2), so that we may reveal His image within us (Gal. 2:20), and rid ourselves of our selfishness. We live in a society where it is possible to serve this world from a high position or none at all (homeless), but we also need to realize that no matter who we are and what we represent, it is not about us! It is about God, the God who loved us enough to send His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture (Ps. 100:3).


The author, T. Collins, says in his book It’s Not About You that one has to unmask oneself to get a complete understanding of God. We say we give God the glory, but do we really give Him 100 percent or do we attach our name to His glory (as if He really needs our help)? We tend to focus on the person in the mirror, but not on the heart from within. This book is meant to prick that heart so that you may unmask the person from within in exchange for a deeper relationship with God. So, when you look at the person in the mirror, what do you see?


Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Our strength is in Him, not in our own weakness.


Please join us for the Ladies Book Club as we continue to study, fellowship, elevate, and empower one another with the Word of God.

2019-2020 Tuesday ladies bible study

Our study, this fall and into January, is by Casandra Martin, 

“Lord, Teach Us to Pray.” 

Taken from Matthew 6: 9 -13 (NIV) as the disciples ask Jesus to teach them to pray.


P: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, 

R: "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us today our daily bread.

A: "And forgive us our debts, as we have also forgiven our debtors, 

y: "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." 


P = Praise; R = Reflect; A = Ask; Y = Yield


Casandra Martin started us off with the basics, reading, reciting this simple prayer. Showing us that prayer is not complicated. We don’t have to use big words, simply sitting down in a quiet space and taking time to “just” have a conversation with Jesus. 

We hope you will come join us in our journey, learning to pray. We have much to learn, much love to give, and a faith that continues to grow as we are awed by our Fathers love.
