Family Life Weekend to Remember
Messy Beautiful Friendship – An Evening with Christine Hoover
Saturday, May 20, 6:30pm, Atrium
Plan to join us as Women's Ministry welcomes author, speaker and blogger, Christine Hoover, to speak from her soon-to-be-released book, Messy Beautiful Friendship – Finding and Nurturing Deep and Lasting Friendships. Christine will explore with us the complexities and joys of Christian friendship among women. This is another great opportunity for fellowship with other women and to invite a friend. There is no charge for the evening but we are accepting donations of baby diapers and wipes for the women's mission team to take to moms in Rwanda. We will also be doing a Q & A with Christine and welcome your questions on friendship. Send us your questions and let us know you are coming at ibc.church/christine.
