What is CONNECT
It is a ministry of love. Committed older Godly women from First Presbyterian Church who desire to connect with younger women in prayerfully matched pairs will establish
one-on-one relationships as they walk together through life in Christ. These pairs will meet regularly to discover spiritual gifts, share accomplishments, joys, frustrations, failures, and fellowship. The wisdom and Biblical legacies the mentors have will demonstrate to the younger women how to know God more intimately, to establish a lifestyle that includes Jesus, and to build a legacy founded on Christ. Connecting with one another now will build Christ-centered legacies that will bless families and the church today as well as the generations of tomorrow. If this ministry is one you would like to be a part of, please email Emily at email@example.com
or call the church office (806.373.4242).

Bible Studies & Resources for Women from Emily Wood
I know this is not as good as sitting together around a table looking at each other’s beautiful smiling faces; however, God has given us technology and podcasts and apps, and below are some ways to take advantage of it! Please look over the list below of online opportunities and study resources. Contact Emily at 350-5218 for questions and to give feedback.
-- A great Bible study resource from Jennie Allen is the IF:Gathering website. Various Bible studies - click here.
-- Proverbs 31 Ministries, run by Lysa Terkeurst (click here), includes all kinds of resources, including the First Five Daily Bible Study app (click here). Both are highly recommended by Shauneen Hatfield and other women in our church.
-- The Bible Recap (click here) is recommended by Shelley Chaloupka & Vicki Keister. Vicki says "I have for two years now read the Bible through and listened to the podcast. I think it would be amazing for others to know about it." You can find The Bible Recap plan on the YouVersion Bible app many of us already have on our phones (click here). You can also subscribe to The Bible Recap podcast. This is a great way to get into the Word of God!
-- Study Gateway (click here) is recommended by Laurie Pinkston. It includes access to more than 2,500 video Bible studies from all our favorite teachers. You can get a free trial on this site to check it out. Please let me know if you are interested in this, and we can purchase a church account to share with all of you! Several of the studies have been mentioned in our women’s testimony videos:
Lezly Welch recommends: It's Not Supposed to be This Way by Lysa TerKeurst.
Shelley Chaloupka recommends: The Rock, The Road and The Rabbi by Kathie Lee Gifford
