Please join us on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Worship Center as we share wisdom and advice with each other as we study My Single Mom Life by author Angela Thomas.
Childcare will be provided at no charge and every participant will receive Angela’s book. Please sign up at the WinGS Kiosk so we can add you to the email list and order books.

My Single Mom Life
The day Angela Thomas sold the only thing she had, the diamond from her engagement ring, to take care of her kids was the day she began to believe they were going to make it. In that decision, the faith she had always talked about became the faith she was going to learn how to live. In the years since, God has given Angela a passionate desire… to live an amazing life even while raising four kids as a single mom. In this book she shares her hard-earned wisdom on loneliness, dating, finances, and parenting, encouraging every solo mom. “As a gift to our children,” she says, “we can become healthy moms who are strong and amazing women in spite of our circumstances.”
A Lenten Prayer
The following is our Prayer for the Lenten Season. It was written by Matthew Paul Turner.
May our love resemble Your love.
May our love exist for all people.
May our love encourage life & hope, sacrifice much, & seek a pathway of humility.
May our love heal wounds, physical & spiritual.
May our love resist fear, challenge ignorance, & embody mercy, grace, & resurrection.
May our love empower forgiveness, tolerance, dialogue, patience, & peace.
May our love mend what is broken, rebuild what is torn down, bridge what is divided, & refill what is empty.
