This January UFC Women will focus on the specific spiritual discipline of fasting. We will look at what the Bible has to say about it and how generations of believers have pursued this practice of denying self for the glory of the Father. We will compare biblical fasting to that of the world, and open a discussion about this often neglected spiritual discipline and how it can provide an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to work in us in a way that we may never have allowed Him to before.

A big thank you to Jamie Harms for leading our First Thessalonians study on Thursdays this fall as we joined the UFC family in exploring six discipleship practices that characterize our church. On Thursday, we wrapped up our study with a review and a brief look ahead to what's next for UFC Women as we approach Thanksgiving and Christmas. In today's post, you'll find a brief review of our study from Jamie and a glimpse of several things we're looking forward to in the coming weeks.
Happy Friday, Ladies. This past week we studied the discipleship practice of evangelism — how we share our hope in Jesus Christ with others. If you missed Thursday's teaching, you'll want to click on the link below and take a listen. Jamie Harms shares a story that will remind you just how important hope is in our daily lives. We will meet next Thursday, Nov. 18, to wrap up our study of First Thessalonians. Join us either at 9:30 a.m. at The Barn (child care provided) or 6:30 p.m. at the church offices. And stay tuned! We have something special coming up for the Christmas season.
If you missed Thursday's teaching, join us on the blog today as Jamie Harms shares how sanctification is not just an item on a checklist but about working with Yahweh Mekoddishkem, the Lord who sanctifies.
Join us this week for I Thessalonians 4:1-8 and 5:12-28 as we jump into the discipleship practice of formation.
