Women, Wine, and the Word

IMG_2843 This is an opportunity for women to come together to build relationships, share in fellowship and explore God’s word.  We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm in people’s homes.
We invite women to bring their Bible, their favorite Wine or appetizer to share, and a friend.

The topic this year is “Exploring your faith in a multi-faith world.”  We will visit key historical and theological elements of three faiths (Lutheran, Judaism, Islam), engage in conversation with guest speakers from those faiths, learn how to talk about our own faith, and practice living our faith through service to others.

If you are interested in being a part of this group and receive more information about our next meeting, please contact Julie Toepper.

Fall
Attend New Beginnings Church as a small group (date TBD – October/November)

New Beginnings Worshiping Community holds worship every Friday evening at 6:00 pm. This is held inside the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility (3600 Havana Street, Denver).  We invite the community to join us in coming together to worship and praise God. The women of New Beginnings just love to know that they are remembered by those on the outside. Some things to expect from the service are singing, praying, hearing the Word, communion, and experiencing the Holy Spirit in our midst.

New Beginnings is always looking for talented people to help make worship services a great experience for all. Past talents have included dance teams, musicians, and various speakers. If you think you would like to contribute your time and talent to this worshiping community please contact us!
