Women’s Wednesday Experience (WWE) 
Joan Watkins | Gilmore Hall South
Join with other women to read and discuss A Scarlet Cord by Deborah Raney. Exploring themes of the importance of truth, loyalty, and trust, A Scarlet Cord illustrates that who we truly are depends little on outward appearances but solely on our relationship with God. Through faith in him, we can find places of comfort, healing, and selfless love.

"It's O.K. to Get It Wrong” is the theme of 2022 Winter/Spring sessions of PazNaz Village. This support ministry has been developed for single moms and the children of single parents. The meetings take place on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Fridays and include a shared meal at 6:30 pm followed by separate age-appropriate programming for children, teens, and adults. All meetings include free childcare. Who can be a PazNaz Village Mom? We believe that a single mom is any woman who is walking their parenting journey, whether permanently or temporarily, and discovers they are missing the emotional, financial or physical support a life partner provides. We are called to help fill in the gap so that no single mom in our community walks her journey alone.

Who can be a PazNaz Village Kid? Any child of a single parent who would enjoy gathering with other children of single parents to learn, play and share together. Are there PazNaz Village Dads? Children of single dads are welcome, but currently there is no group for the single dads. Perhaps you can form a group of your own that meets when our single moms do. It is not advisable to combine the moms and dads because of the need for healing in some situations. It is our prayer that one day a man will answer a call to work with single dads in our community. Could that be you? If you would like to be a participant in or volunteer for PazNaz Village, please contact Ferol Null at fnull@paznaz.org or 626.351.2414 to register yourself and/or your children.
