Project Description

Join us on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM. For more information and location directions, contact Carolyn Garcia at or call the church office.



Our next Believers meeting will be January 17th at 7:00 PM in Tracy Mattes’ condo. We will be counting our blessings…even through our trials…through Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts. Here’s the link for, but there are some used copies available through Amazon if you prefer.

Traci Vanderbush will be leading us through the series, and will also be glad to answer any questions you may have.

In “One Thousand Gifts,” author and blogger Ann Voskamp invites you into her own moments of grace, gently teaching you how to biblically lament loss, turning pain into poetry and intentionally embracing a lifestyle of radical gratitude.
Discover a way of seeing that opens your eyes to everyday amazing grace, a way of living that is fully alive, and a way of experiencing the constant presence of God that will bring you deep and lasting joy. There is purity in simplicity and a breathtaking beauty that can be found even in life’s slightest details and heartbreaking moments. Ann Voskamp welcomes you in to explore her grace-bathed life of farming, parenting, and writing, and encourages you to live a life filled with gratitude, no matter where you are.
Not a book merely to read, “One Thousand Gifts” begs to be embraced as a dynamic, interactive primer inviting you to engage with truths that will serve up the depths of God’s joy and transform your life forever. Hardcover.
Noteworthy: This author is one of a special group of women who writes for (in)courage, the popular online friendship community. Every day they take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their every day, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.
If you read the (in)courage blog online, then you’ll be sure to enjoy this title.
