January Focused Fellowship

FoCuSeD FeLlOwShIp

Need to re-focus have we got the place for you!  Are you in the process of adopting?  Are you caring for foster children and want to know that you are not alone? Can we join with you in prayer for your family? Are you in need of encouragement and support?  

Focused Fellowship exists for ladies that are anywhere in the process of fostering and/or adopting in any form.  We desire to encourage you, lighten your load as we go to the Lord in prayer, share practical information and find ways to help each of us as we follow the Lord's leading to care for the least of these.

We begin with a short devotion, a time of prayer, and then spend time encouraging each other practically.

Join us on the 3rd Monday of each month for a time of refreshment.

The January meeting:  Monday, January 21, 2013

Time:  7:00pm

Place: Monica's home, 1111 W Burnside Dr, Peoria, IL

Because it is our desire to lighten your load you don't need to RSVP, always feel free to bring a friend, and if you are inclined a snack to share.

For questions or directions call Monica at 303-7965 or Amy at 251-7250 or
