The vision behind REFRESH...
We have come through an unprecedented time of quarantines, masks, barriers, and closures. Both new and long-time members alike have fallen out of the habit of meeting together. Some feel “not part" of the church family. The January 1 sermon from Gordon "Never Alone" reminded us about being alone - God said it is NOT good! Believers are called to be together and a part of a family... we are to be different than the world.
Each element of the day is an opportunity for each to get to know others. Our ultimate goal is to be women that glorify God and help refresh each other in the spirit.
For they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore, recognize such people. ~ 1 Cor 16:18
May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains. ~ 2 Tim 1:16
Your love has given me much joy and encouragement. You have refreshed the hearts of God’s people. ~ Philem 1:7
