The Gathering: A Time of Worship for Women

Twice a year, my church organizes a time of worship for women in the Cleveland, Ohio area called The Gathering. We eat, talk, worship and hear from  a speaker (that’s me!) about God’s Word. We started as a group of about 15 women meeting in a local library. Now, we’ve grown to nearly 200. In November, God blew our minds with not only the growth in participation but in the awesome way He made His presence felt. It was so unbelievable that I’m still wondering if it was all a dream! Here’s a recap:

Have you ever heard the sound of 200 women praising God? There’s nothing like it!

Hey, that’s me! God spoke to us from the story of Rahab in Joshua 2. You can listen to the message here (look for The Gathering 2016).

God bless the women of Christ Community Church for serving to make this event possible!
