We just started a new video Bible Study, by Priscilla Shirer, a seven-session journey through the life and times of the Old Testament prophet, Elijah. If you are interested in digging in to the Word of God, I encourage to check us out. The study starts with a review of the week’s workbook lesson, followed by a video teaching, then closes with how this teaching applies to our lives today. Come join this warm and welcoming group of women who desire to have a closer relationship with God!

Quilting & Crafting Group – Every 2nd Friday

The AWC Quilting Club is a great way to turn fellow members into precious, dear friends, while stitching the hours away. Meeting dates are each 2nd Friday. This month we will be meeting on Friday, 9 July and Friday 23, July. . Starting time is usually 12:30pm. Other crafters are “welcome” to attend. Bring along your small craft project and join in on the fun. If you want to learn the skill of English Paper Piecing, our master quilter Karrina Mitchell will guide you with the patience, as she did for most of the participants! It’s not too late to jump in! Check the July and August newsletters for the details!

Volunteers Group – Times and dates vary

This newly formed group of avid volunteers gets together to do group projects as they present themselves, and also has its own page to share individual and group volunteer opportunities. Future projects include preparing sandwiches for the homeless at “Perth Homeless Support Group”. Past projects have been preparing afternoon tea for the patients and their families at “Ronald McDonald House” and collecting gently used professional attire to give to the “Dress for Success” Initiative.
