“Change” It’s a thrilling word to some and a terrifying word to others  But when we stop to think about it, we’re all in a constant state of change:  the clock changes every second, the tides every six hours, seasons every three months and our bodies aging one day at a time until our days on this earth pass away.  So, change is natural, right?  If it’s not natural, it’s good, right? ”  Kathi Lee Gifford

But….. with all the changes we face on a daily basis….there is one constant in our lives.  Jesus!    Isn’t it wonderful to know that and that He is the same yesterday, today and forever?  Jesus never changes, ever, in the slightest.   The plan He has for our lives never changes either.  He is constantly reaching down from heaven into our lives in order to teach us what is true, guide our every step, and lead us into a future that is filled with grace and hope.  Still….the means and methods He uses to move us through each season of our lives may vary.  Every year comes wrapped in a different package, and 2018 is no exception.

In many ways the Women Alive ministry here at the Naz will look pretty much the same this year as it has in the past.  There will be bible studies to attend….an all day retreat at Mt. Hope to enjoy….Girls Night Out events and all sorts of opportunities to connect with other women, grow personally and in faith.

The slight difference you may notice this year is that our goal for 2018 is to bring women of all ages together so we can get to know each other and encourage one another and go deeper in our relationship with the Lord.  Women need women, especially in the crazy world we live in and we all have something of value to contribute and share.

We hope you will join us whenever and wherever you can.  Jesus has so many blessings that He wants to pour out onto each and every one of us.  We don’t want you to miss out!

Love in Christ, Patty Clark

Morning and Evening Bible Studies

One of the greatest challenges we face as contemporary women is learning how to cease from activities and breathe.  We seem to be in bondage to busyness.  We strive to complete limitless to-do-lists, be all things to all people and….be perfect.  Our lives, unfortunately, are so busy that we forfeit the privilege of knowing and experiencing God.

Priscilla Shirer has done a masterful job of creating a bible study that is both biblically based and intensely practical.  Not only does she teach us about the scriptural principle of the Sabbath but then, she provides us with the tools so we can make room in our lives for God and create a Sabbath lifestyle of our own.

This DVD driven class is a must no matter what stage of life you are in.

Sew Much Ministry

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said….”It is more blessed to give than to receive.”  Acts 20:35

9:00 am – Noon     Fellowhsip Hall

Whether you sew, knit, quilt or crochet, or would like to learn, the Sew Much Ministry here at OroNaz is a creative way of fellowshipping and reaching out to our community to make a difference in the lives of others.  We enjoy giving our quilts and other projects away; sometimes near and sometimes far away.  This ministry can benefit a variety of individuals or groups like foster children, hospital patients, the homeless, crisis centers and international missions.  This is only a small example of how and where we can minister.

Our monthly meetings are a combination of encouragement, discussions and sharing.  We are self-funded through donations and the gifting of fabric.  We have been blessed.  We are looking forward to 2018.  Every year looks different for we wait on God to direct us in the direction of His need.

We are always looking to expand our ministry and share the joy of serving with new members.  Interested in quilting, serving or making new friends?  We meet the last Thursday of each month from January through September.  Should you decide to join us, please bring an item to supplement our salad bar luncheon which we share together at the end of our meeting.
