Just Faith

Hunger: A Faith & Justice Response
How do I put into action the need for social change in my community?
Hunger: A Faith & Justice Response is an 8-session small group program by JustFaith Ministries. The program seeks to create a new movement of solidarity between Christians with sufficient access to food and those experiencing food insecurity, both in the U.S. and around the world. By fostering active listening, dialogue, and prayer, it creates a group experience of trust and compassion. Using new learning from articles, online viewing, and a resource book, it lends new insights to participants’ awareness of the causes and consequences of food insecurity. By encouraging new spiritual practices and actions, it cultivates an expanding community of Christians who are in action to end hunger in our world.

Women’s Bible Study

Women's Bible Study is a group that gets together (usually with a Fall and Spring session) to study a portion of the Bible, meeting on Tuesdays from 12:30 - 2 pm, with the same session repeated on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m.  The program usually follows a study guide prepared by an organization such as Ascension Press. 

The Spring 2024  session is Surpassing the Value of Knowing Christ - a study of the Philippians.  Come along with Beth and Melissa Moore in this five meeting study of the Philippians.  By the power of the same Holy Sprit who took the gospel to Europe by way of Philippi, discover what Paul magnificently called The Surpassing Value of Knowing Christ.  This program will run for 5 weeks.  Meetings start April 9/11, on-line registration for this program is now closed.  Contact MaryJo Brandt at mjbrandt6@gmail.com if you have any questions.
