In October 2017, a small group of 11 mentors (Heart-Moms) and 11 mentees (Heart-Sisters) entered into a Pilot-Program where, after much prayer, they were paired according to their needs and interests. Six months later this group grew to almost 50 women.

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
Women of Faith
Women of Faith (Median Adult Department) is a group of women of differing ages, married or not, who enjoy being together as we study God’s Word on Sunday mornings and as we fellowship at other times during the year.
We are a class of women focused on "The Word" which is what logos means. We study amazing Bible studies from Dr. David Jeremiah, and we cover all sections of the Bible depending on the materials we select. As adult women hungry to understand God's word for our specific lives even though we are all past retirement age, we love the insights, warmth, and fellowship our class provides us every week.
