It's 2 a.m. and you have a family emergency. What information do you need, and where can you find it?

In this class you will work with a fill-in-the-blank booklet designed for all the important pieces you will need in an emergency, and the location of each. (View a workbook at the registration table.) Take the time to learn how to prepare valuable information for times of confusion so your family and loved ones know your wishes and true intentions.

Leaders: Candice Groves, Sarita Jones, and Taylor Wickline
Need a fresh perspective on life? Inspired to do more? Want to get your fire back? Join this women's weekly devotional group to explore creative ways to rekindle the gifts God has given us and to do great things through scripture, hands-on activities, and prayer. Fanning Your Flame has a casual format of scripture, devotional, activity, and prayer time. Minimal weekly preparation makes an ideal situation for dropping by and joining in. "For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands." (2 Timothy 1:6, NIV)
Using DNA to Research YOUR Genealogy
Instructor: Terry Barton
This introductory class will cover the basics of Genetic Genealogy, providing information about the four main tests: yDNA (correlates to paternal surname), ySNP (brings ancient paternal line into modern times), mtDNA (mother's mother's...mother's maternal line), and atDNA (the "whole Ancestry" test). With this information, you can determine what test to use on which family member to answer a specific ancestral question. The course will also cover the steps you should take after you get your test results, and will provide practical examples of how you can use your own results.
Founder of WorldFamilies.net, Terry Barton is a "pioneer" in Genetic Genealogy and a DNA speaker for the International Society of Genetic Genealogy. He speaks regularly to local, national, and international groups.
Yarn Works for Prayer Shawl Ministry
Facilitator: Elizabeth Creagh
Cost: Purchase of your own yarn and needles/hooks
Participants in this group will work on their own knitted or crocheted prayer shawls and blankets, while enjoying the camaraderie of other yarn workers. Finished works are made available to anyone who would like to give one to a person in need of care and comfort. Because every shawl or blanket is prayed over while being made, each recipient is literally covered in prayer when using it.
Help and support are available for all skill levels. We will provide friendship among ourselves and ministry to those whom we serve. Please join us each Wednesday that you're able to come.
