March 22nd Meeting

A reminder that everyone is encourage to come early. Remember child care opens at 9:15 so if you check your kids in early you can get settled early too!

Speakers

"Road To Joy Ministries"
Cindy Cole Nelson and Kathe Matthews met in a singing group and soon realized it was no accident that they formed an immediate bond. They had quite a bit in common; both were mothers of teenagers, married over 20 years, worked as accountants and had passions for Bible study, speaking and creative writing. Cindy was at work on her first Christian music album and Kathe was compiling short stories and poetry for a book she would later publish. Unfortunately, they also discovered they shared a common struggle with worry and anxiety. Road to Joy Ministries was born when it became apparent that God brought them together, not only to support each other, but to send them out to help others. Today they speak at conferences, retreat programs, and other ministry events. With God leading the way, Cindy and Kathe hope to show others that traveling down His Road to Joy is the ride of a lifetime.
