Invitation to the Women

From Nancy Gin:

An African proverb 'It takes a village to raise a child'. It does take a 'village' to raise a child in the 21st century - but now the village is a GLOBAL one.
Yesterday at the Women's Retreat at FPC, we defined and 'experienced' community, Christian community and Christian community in action.
I would like to extend an invitation to ALL, especially the women of FPC to join in a 'movement' to partner with our 'sisters' who have incredible selfless vision to further women's well being 'globally'.

Read 'Half The Sky' Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide' by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, and lets get together to brainstorm and find a way to 'invest' in young girls and women's future.
May God bless you as you become a blessing to many.

Your sister-in-Christ,

  1. Nancy - thank you for identifying this issue and inviting us to join you.

    We also have women in our community with some basic needs - a topic discussed at some length during the session retreat in September. Laura Arthur and I are planning to meet and plan a "baby step" that we believe can have an impact for local women who are struggling. If you are interested contact Laura or me.
