IF:JOPLIN is a gathering of women across generations, denominations, and cultures who are exploring or have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Why do we gather? We believe gathering is a spark for fueling discipleship in our community. This is a generation that is not just hungry for big faith, but for a big faith that is lived out in the practical, mundane things we do and the decisions that we make every day. What does it look like to follow God and live out this faith in our relationships, at our jobs, in conflict, in suffering, with money? Faith can move mountains, but it can also change our everyday circumstances. We are going to look at God’s word to do that in one of the most practical, yet misunderstood, books of the Bible – Proverbs. Proverbs doesn’t show us a set of rules, but a different way to live that is so attractive, so fragrant, flowing through our lives, actions, relationships, and work, and drawing people to Christ. Together, we are going to discover what it looks like to do these things, not perfectly, but in good faith, trying our best to obey God and His way of life.
All women are welcome to join us for this two-day women’s video teaching event with live worship, prayer, food, and conversation. Be sure to check out the event page on Facebook under IF:JOPLIN. Invite other women in our community and make this a wonderful time of fellowship and discipleship!
Snacks are provided Friday and Saturday as well as lunch on Saturday. Please park and enter on the south side of the building. We recommend you bring your bible and a journal or notebook for note-taking. Please arrange for your own childcare.
