    IF:Gathering Simulcast

    February 5th - February 6th, 2016


    We would love to join as a community to seek, listen, and pray for what God has for us, our families, and our communities in 2016! This is open to any lady that would like to come. Come for the whole thing or come for when you can -- you will not want to miss this amazing time of worship, preaching, and encouragement!!! Lunch will be provided. Don't forget your Bible and notebook and we'll see you soon! See more event information at www.ifgathering.com

    The IF:Gathering seeks to gather, equip, and unleash this generation of women to live out God’s calling on their lives. We are a generation of women that believes God at His Word that He called us to our places and will use us for His glory and for the good of His people. Our goal is to make the name of Jesus great in and through the women of our church, neighborhood, & city.

    The world around us feels like it is crumbling and almost nothing seems certain, until we look to Jesus and see that our Hope is very clear and certain. He didn’t just give us salvation—Jesus is our salvation and the example of what it means to live in the fullness of grace and truth. What the world needs is His redemption, the very redemption and hope that lives inside of us. Rather than shrink back, it is time to love like Jesus loved, serve like Jesus served, pray like Jesus prayed, and pursue holiness like Jesus pursued it. Join this global gathering of women across denominations, generations, and cultures as we come together in the name of Jesus.
