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!

11 Years of Finding God’s Glory.

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.

LADIES DAY 2019: April 6

Thank you to all the Sisters who made our Ladies Day special.  May the theme, songs, and message from Sara Reimers be one to remember

- My Sister's Keeper.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9 - 10 - "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.

For if they fall, the one will lift-up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."

Thank You to the 2019 Co-Leaders: Renee Wharton and Wanda Oliver and the Ladies Day Planning Committee. 

The breakfast and the lunch were abundant and delicious.
