SPECIAL EVENTS

LADIES SPRING BRUNCH

Saturday, April 21st, 10am-noon


Our theme for this year's event is Lemonade: When Life Gives You Lemons...God Makes Things New.  This is a time set apart to celebrate as women all the relationships that God has put in our lives....mothers, daughters, sisters, bosses, co-workers, friends...the guest list can be as varied as the women we walk through life with.  We are excited to announce that Debbie Frazee will be our guest speaker.  She brings a wealth of Biblical knowledge along with a passion for teaching others.  A delicious brunch will be served, and our table hostesses will have the space decorated with their finest.  If you would like information on being a hostess please contact Carol Senkel at 512-431-6886 (call or text).


conferences

Our ladies are encouraged to participate in state, local & national conferences as a way to grow spiritually.  in 2016, we were blessed with having a nationally recognized conference right here in Temple: Fresh Grounded Faith.  Jennifer Rothschild and her team led us in worship and study of God's word.  We look forward to seeing what is offered in 2018.

girl time

Our name for those periodic special events that we participate in as a means to promote fellowship and friendship among the women of our church, as well as our community. Previously on the calendar was a night at Painting With A Twist. Some of our other events include attending the Beth Moore simulcast, as well as the Day for Women. Last summer we even had a Bunco night. Most recently was a dinner (scheduled during PNO) at a local restaurant.  If you have an idea for the next Girl Time, let us know about it!  Contact Sherry Keener at 254-449-0770.

annual retreat

The women of Foundation schedule a yearly retreat to foster relationships and encourage spiritual growth.  Last year's retreat was held on February 10-11, and the theme was Lavender Springs Spa, where we studied the Psalms and their timelessness in communicating with our Creator.  For 2018, the retreat is already booked at CedarBrake Renewal Center for Friday-Saturday, September 7-8th.  Even more exciting is the news that we have booked Debbie Hannah Skinner as our speaker.  Make sure you have these dates blocked off on your calendar!
