Jesus said, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Please join us at the 2019 Women’s Assembly where we will celebrate being women of God together for a day. We will praise God in song, hear God’s Word and learn how to make room for rest in our busy lives. We invite you to come, leaving the daily chaos aside for one day, and find joy in fellowship with women of all ages from across the region. No matter where you are in your faith journey, we welcome you to the Women’s Assembly.

“Yet even now, says the Lord, return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing.
Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing.”
Joel 2: 12-13
“So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord— 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we do have confidence, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For all of us must appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may receive recompense for what has been done in the body, whether good or evil.”
2 Corinthians 5: 6-10
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.”
2 Corinthians 3: 17-18
If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Say this prayer, meditate on the times you fall short, believe your sins will be forgiven, and ask God to change your heart:
God of majesty and might, I imagine the face of Moses on your mountain, shining with the radiance of your glory; I pretend that I would not look away in fear or feel relieved when he shields my eyes from the effects of your power; I imagine being commended for my courage in the face of your splendor, but I know better.
I long to be invited to like Peter, James, and John to witness Christ’s glory, but I secretly suspect that I, too, would be weighed down with sleep, or feel the need to speak when I should be listening. Test my heart, God. Call me to climb your mountain that I might face my fears and prove myself worthy of your holy calling. Amen
Climb with Moses up the Mountain of God.
God’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb with Jesus up the Mountain of God.
God’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb with the faithful up the Mountain of God.
The Spirit’s glory shines like the sun.
Climb the Mountain of God.
Come, and see God’s glory!
“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”
Colossians 3: 12-13
Jesus heard that they had driven him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “And who is he, sir? Tell me, so that I may believe in him.” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he.” He said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped him. Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment so that those who do not see may see, and those who do see may become blind.”
John 9: 35-39
