HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR WOMEN’S MINISTRY “HEART 2 HEART MINISTRIES” The mission of the Heart 2 Heart ministry is: Women investing in the lives of each other through wisdom, mutual encouragement and friendship. The goal is to form strong and lasting relationships in Christ that are a source of support, growth and strength. We see our mandate from Titus 2:3-5, which places the responsibility on mature and godly women to teach and disciple younger women in the faith. If you are interested in becoming a mentor/mentee, sign ups will begin in August. We are looking for women of all ages and all walks of life. You don’t have to be PERFECT or make a huge time commitment to come along side another lady for the year. We are just looking for women who want to share life with other women in a mentoring setting. Heart 2 Heart is also looking for a coordinator for the fall. If you have a desire to see women mentoring women, please contact Dawn VandenBrink at or 399-9776.
