February 24-26 in Murrieta Hot Springs
Women of all ages are invited to go to Murrieta Hot Springs for Be Still: Listening for His Voice with speaker Jayme Lenker and worship led by Rosa Ramirez.

“Could it be, dear sisters, that we are so busy doing life that we don’t take time to get alone with God and hear Him speak to our hearts through His Word? Or are we spiritually hard of hearing and unable to speak truth? Could it be that the blaring noise of life has deafened us to the still small voice of God? ”
– Kay Arthur & David Arthur. Jesus: Listening for His Voice.

Five meals and lodging included. Partial scholarships available.

Wednesdays – Girlfriend to Girlfriend
6:30-8:00 pm, Gilmore Hall
Girlfriend to Girlfriend is a Wednesday evening book study with 70 ladies who study, pray, and share life together. Do you feel like you don’t pray enough, read your Bible enough, share your faith enough, or aren’t spiritual enough? Beginning Wednesday, January 11 at 6:30 pm, women of all ages are invited to explore how imperfection, unfinishedness, and messiness are the earmarks of true Christianity; real Christianity is messy, erratic, lopsided, and gloriously liberating. Come to Gilmore Hall and study Messy Spirituality: God’s Annoying Love for Imperfect People by Mike Yaconelli. Books will be available the first day of class. There is a $20 fee for materials. Scholarships are available.

For more information, contact Megan Marsh at mmarsh@paznaz.org or 626.351.2429. Free nursery, children, youth, and men’s ministries also available.
