Valerie Matyas-Visual Faith

As women we strive to create many things: nourishing meals, peaceful homes, healthy relationships, and positive memories. The things we create are not for our glory but for His. We were created to Glorify Him. Join us at the Our Shepherd Lutheran Women’s Retreat where we will have the opportunity to reflect and respond to God's Word in creative ways, not for our glory but for His.
Valerie Matyas is a Visual Faith Coach with Visual Faith Ministry. She enjoys sharing creative ways to reflect and respond to God's Word specifically through Visual Prayer, Bible Journaling, and Faith Journaling. www.visualfaithmin.org

Lifelight on Thursday

The group prepares for the lessons in advance and meets to discuss the assigned readings and questions. It has proven to be a good way for many of the women to have regular personal Bible study.

MOPS is for ALL MOMS! Working, stay-at-home, single, married, first baby on the way, mother of 19, adopted children, biological children, or step-child(ren). If you are a mom with at least one child between birth and kindergarten or pregnant, MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) is for You! MOPS is a time for fellowship with other moms in the same stage of life and learning strategies and tips that will help us be the best moms we can be. Children are cared for in their own separate program with age appropriate activities. We also offer opportunities for moms' nights out, playgroups and other fun activities.
