Like Seed on Good Soil: A Study on Spiritual Growth
Sundays, June 5 – August 28 | 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. |Room 607-610
Leaders: Tonja Brice, Laurie Graffo, and Sherrie Rodriguez
God desires us to live a fruitful life that glorifies Him. But what does that mean, and how do we get there? Using the Parable of the Sower as our launching pad, this study will allow us to closely examine Scripture to discover insights and treasures that reveal God’s desire for us to grow in our faith. Like seed on good soil, may we produce a lasting spiritual crop.

It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

Our heart as a prayer group is to pray for revival in the church, our nation, and our world.

Women of any age and life stage, whether members of COTA or from outside of the church, who have a desire for God’s glory and His will to be done, are welcome to join us.
No registration needed. Please join us any time.

Lovely: A Night of Contentment – A Girl’s Night Out
Thursday, August 25 | 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | The Commons
Hosted by Mom2Mom
The Apostle Paul was content in seasons when he had much and when he had little. So why do women still struggle with comparison, covetousness, and complaining? How do we cultivate contentment in our lives?
God’s love for His people is unchanging, and He is using every detail of our lives to shape and fashion us into the image of Jesus Christ. As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him.
Join us for an evening of refreshment, encouragement, and dinner.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
