Our Upcoming Sermon Series: Offering Our All.

Our 2022-23 Ministry Year tagline is “Rooted, Growing, Sharing.” This year we will be diving into God’s word as we explore and discover as a church what it means to be rooted in Christ, in grace, and in the Word. We want to be a body of Christ that seeks to grow together and sharing our service of missions & ministry for the Kingdom. Throughout the year we will be talking about these various topics along with a mini-series in November, Offering Our All. A series on Stewardship within the body of Christ based on Matthew 25:14-29 … The Parable of the Bags of Gold 2 Corinthians 9:6-15 … Tithing: Sowing Generously and finally, — Exodus 23:14-19 … Firstfruits.

WayMaker Women’s Study by Ann Voskamp

WHAT IF IT’S NOT THE HARD ROADS THAT SLAY US, BUT THE UNMET EXPECTATIONS OF WHAT WE HOPED THE ROAD WOULD BE?What if the expectations that you’ve been handed, that define success, fulfillment, and meaning in ways that do not correspond with the actual topography and reality of your life, leave you looking for a better way?

Women, come join Barb Aja, Joan Burgess, Vicky Hentschel, and Linda Haubald in a Women’s Ministry Study this fall.  There will be 3 sessions starting in September throughout the week here in our Family Life Center and continuing through November.

Barb Aja & Joan Burgess Monday Mornings 10 AM-12 PM

Vicky Hentschel Wednesday Evenings from 6-7:30 PM 

Linda Haubald Thursday Mornings 10 AM-12 PM

Sunday Children’s Church

This summer we will be using the GO curriculum for children during service on Sundays! Sunday mornings children will be dismissed for a chance to go downstairs and engage in an aged appropriate bible lesson. They will then be reunited with their families just in time for communion. We also need Nursery volunteers for the summer for ages infant – 3 years old.

IF Gathering Brunch & Breakout

Brunch and Breakout is a time when women of all ages, from around the community, who are a part of The Body of Christ, gather together to eat brunch and build a community that encourages each other to grow in and obey the calling God has placed on each one of us. We watch a breakout session, which is a talk from one of the Christian authors and speakers that have been featured at the women’s conference IF: Gathering. We then break into small groups for a time of discussion about the video we watched. To RSVP and get date information each month, head to IF Traverse City’s Facebook Page here.
