Gaining A Heart of Wisdom

On Saturday, April 24th 39 women from Alive In Christ and the community gathered together for the “Gaining A Heart of Wisdom” women’s event.  The gathering included opening worship led by Grace Dablemont, talks by guest speaker Shirley Colbert from International Friends Ministries, and lunch with a nice time of fellowship.

Shirley Colbert’s morning talk focused on wisdom looking at Proverbs 8 and 9.  Then in the afternoon she talked about ways we can gain wisdom.  Each participant received a t-shirt, a God Guides booklet/devotional, and a bookmark with a reminder of how to turn anger/bitterness into the power of God’s love.  Resources from the talk can be found in the linked booklet.

After over a year of limited fellowship due to COVID, the attendees enjoyed conversations at their tables over a leisurely lunch.  

Below are some pictures from the day’s events.

A special thank you to the Women’s Ministry Team (Angie Benad, Leah Hibbeler, Wen Ritts, and Karen Souza) for organizing this event.  If you have ideas or are interested in planning future women’s events contact any of the Women’s Ministry Team members, email, or contact Tammy Wiese at
