Happy New Year!

Standard

Tonight will be our first meeting in 2018.

(6:00-8:30)

2017 was a eventful year… here were a few highlights:

In the Spring we did another program at an assisted living facility where we had the chance to be a blessing and share the gospel in our community.

(Practicing at our house. I don’t have a picture of while we were there… if anyone has pictures of any of these events I’d love to see them!)

In the Summer we had the Set Apart Girls Conference. So thankful for everyone who came out and for all the help! Mama did an amazing God coordinating the food and decorations and I got to practice flexibility and trusting God when the lesson videos would not play after the first few! He always has His reasons and it allowed for a lot more time for good discussions and fellowship.

(Worship time at the end, led by the Fingerson and Teagarden ladies.)

In the fall we had a Etiquette Tea Party!! It was a wonderful evening learning to be ladylike; filled with Delicious Food, Tea (of course 😉), Good Conversations, Games & Dancing.

I’m forward to see what this year will hold!

Do you have any favorite memories from this year? Share them in the comments!

Hope to see you tonight!

God bless!

Upcoming Women’s Conference!

Standard

Hello, everyone!

You’re invited to a ladies conference (ages 12 and up) that will be held at Grace Bible Church on Friday night and all day Saturday, August 11-12.

I’m very excited to share with you this opportunity to be blessed and encouraged by Video Sessions from Leslie Ludy!

‘As modern women, we are prone to looking to everything but Christ to define who we are. In our search for identity and purpose, we frantically seek after self-discovery, self-fulfillment, and self-expression. Yet the Bible makes it clear that the Christian life is not to be centered around us, but Him. In today’s self-focused culture, how do we build a truly Christ-focused life?’ -Leslie Ludy

We will be learning about Becoming a Christ-Centered Woman and other great topics such as:

  • Becoming a Discerning Woman,
  • A Fortified and Fearless Woman,
  • A World-Changing Woman,
  • Inspiring Bravehearted Manhood
  • The Power of a Poured-Out Life.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper will be provided on Saturday.

In order to cover the costs and plan appropriately, there will be a cost of $20 per person, but not exceeding $60 per immediate family if you pay ahead of time. (Think dinner and a movie, but this is worth way more!) Please note that if you choose to pay at the door instead, the cost will be $25 per person, not exceeding $75 per family.

Please use this Facebook link  — which will count as your RSVP — to pay via PayPal by 8/05/17. Enter $20 in the amount and the number in your family in the quantity field. (Please ensure everyone checking in at the conference knows which last name was used for the Paypal payment.)  If you are not able to pay via Paypal, you can pay us in cash.

When?
August 11 – August 12
Aug 11 at 5:30 PM to Aug 12 at 9:00 PM EDT
 Where?
Grace Bible Church
403 Rockcroft St, Port Charlotte, Florida 33954

How Much?
Pre-register: $20 per person, $60 max family.
At Door: $25 per person, $75 max family.

If you want more information, the Facebook page is here.

This invitation is open to all interested ladies, not just Bright Lights girls, so tell your friends and their moms! 🙂

If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to leave us a comment and we’ll get right back to you ASAP. 🙂


Also,

Our first meeting of the new school year will be on August 28th!  Yay!

Hope to see you there and maybe a bring friend or two? *hint hint* We love seeing our regulars bring their friends!  A good deal of us “old-timers” came that way, as a matter of fact. 🙂

Thanks!

Last Meeting!

Standard

Hello, everyone!

Monday the 22nd (today) is the last meeting we’re going to have before our summer break!  It will be from 6-8:30ish, as per usual.

We will be starting up again in August, but we want to see you before then, so we encourage you all to come to this last meeting before we part ways for the summer.

We have a lot of girls who are going to be serving God’s Kingdom this summer by ministering to kids at Camp Gilead and 5-Day Clubs, and they would certainly appreciate your prayers as they embark on these crazy adventures that the Lord is leading them on.

Camp Gilead:
-Emily Mann
-Sydney Teagarden
-Cheryl Mann
-Elisa Clarke (once a Bright Lights girl, always one!)
-Rachel Clarke

Christian Youth In Action:
-Cheryl Mann

It’s been another wonderful year; thank you for spending it with us!

NO Meeting Tonight

Standard

Hi, everyone!

There will be no Bright Lights meeting tonight because the Manns (Hannah, Emily, and Cheryl) are camping for a couple weeks out of state.   Please keep them and the Sanders (Courtney and Jessica) in prayer for traveling mercies.

However, we will be having one last meeting before we break for the summer.  That will be held on May 22nd, which is in two weeks.  We hope to see you all there!

Monday Meeting

Standard

Hello, everyone!

The outreach to the Springs on Saturday went really well, thank you so much to those who were able to join us in singing and presenting the Gospel to the residents of this assisted living community.  Those I talked to really enjoyed it. 🙂

There will be a normal meeting this Monday, though, because it is the 4th Monday.  

We hope to see you there! 🙂
