WOMEN'S MINISTRY
 
COMING UP IN JULY...
 
VBS FOR WOMEN
 
Reclaiming Hearts Ministries is excited to hold a VBS for Women event
in Sumter.  This year’s theme is “Into The Deep”. The event will feature
lessons by author and Bible teacher Denise Hildreth Jones, and worship
will be led by Regi Stone.
 
VBS for Women will take place at Bethesda Church of God on
Friday, July 17 - 7:00 - 9:30 pm and continues Saturday,
July 18 - 9:00 am -1:00 pm.

Denise Hildreth Jones, Franklin, TN resident, author and Bible teacher and founder
of Reclaiming Hearts Ministries released two books in March of 2013. They include
the non-fiction book Reclaiming Your Heart: A Journey Back to Laughing, Loving and Living and its fiction companion Secrets Over Sweet Tea.  Denise has spent the last decade speaking honestly with the audiences that she engages both through teaching and through her writing.  Worship is led by Regi Stone, a songwriter and recording artist based in Nashville. This event brings to life the childlike heart of each woman; this experience for the young at heart!  Denise reminds us, “Women at their core are
nurturers. Yet, sometimes we forget that we need to be nurtured as well.  We as a
ministry open the door for women to encounter the heart of God and the joy, if even
for few hours, of feeling like a kid again.”  Bethesda Church of God is located at
2730 Broad Street in Sumter.  Registration is not required and childcare is not provided.  The event is free; however, a love offering will be taken, and there will
be a silent auction.  Come and bring friends!!
For more information contact Cindy Timmons.
