The Village Gathering // A Christmas Event

One of my dreams over the last two years has been to gather women together to encourage and inspire them in their lives.  My heart beats to see women live in community together while pursuing their dreams for the honor and glory of Jesus.  They say it takes a village to raise a child, but I honestly believe it takes a village for any of us to do life.

This is why I am so excited to tell you about The Village Gathering, A Christmas Event being held in our home on December 19 from 6:30-9:00 in the evening.  This is an evening where you are invited to enjoy a meal and then together we will prepare Christmas boxes that you will be able to take home and share with those in their neighborhood and community.  

There are a lot of hurting people all around us and I think it is especially present during the holidays.  Immediately our lonely, elderly neighbor, Rose, comes to my mind.  She is always so curious about our family and life and if I'm honest, most days it's easy to miss this opportunity God has put in our life to live out the Gospel to her.  I'm sure you have your own 'Rose' in your backyard and these Christmas boxes we will make together will be a perfect chance for you to go home and reach out to those around you.  We will also spend some time together being led in worship by two beautiful women.  My prayer is for our hearts to be inspired to worship and love Jesus more through these events.  Another fun thing is that each attendee will also receive a Christmas Swag Bag to take home for yourself!!

Unfortunately due to spacial limitations, tickets to this gathering are limited.  If you want to be one of ten women to attend, please email me to reserve your ticket right away.  You might even want to invite a friend to come with you and enjoy a festive night out during the business of the holidays.  The event cost is $15 per person to help offset the costs of materials and supplies.

And for those of you who aren't local enough to join us, I pray that you might considering hosting your own evening to come together with your 'village' to reach out and bless your community.  There is a big hurting world of precious souls that need to see Jesus' love in action.  Will it be me?!  Will it be you?!!

  1. Could it help bridge the gap between 'us and them' to invite Miss Rose to come and help make boxes for other people, if she isn't housebound? I hope we all see ourselves as being hurt and needing to see Jesus' love.

  2. This is such a beautiful, beautiful idea.
    I love your heart in this, and it's a great reminder that this time of year is such an opportunity to fill some voids in peoples lives, to meet them in the hurting places, and to show Christ's love.
    Unfortunately Alaska is not local enough :( But, I am challenged and encouraged, so thank you!
