This fall, we will be participating in Rooted. Rooted is a 10 week small group experience that connects people to God, the church, and their purpose. Your group will establish firm roots in the Truth of God’s Word through personal study, then come together to discuss what you’re learning in a space where you are safe and known.
One of the essentials of the Christian faith is that we are with one another in all aspects of life. We get it. Being a wife, sister, friend, co-worker, entrepreneur, or mom is hard work. Sometimes you just need a group of people to be with you on the journey. New City Women are gathering on Saturday, Sept. 7th at 9am to learn from, encourage, and support each other in Christ.
Childcare is available. Please email email@example.com so we know to expect your kids.
