Our women’s conference on June 8th was a time of women gathering together in worship, prayer and listening to God’s Word being taught. It was a beautiful day together even though the topics were difficult and hard.
Pat Patton gave two workshops. The first was “Ruins of the Body” in which she addressed how even in our physical struggles, it is still all about God and glorifying Him.
In Pat’s second workshop, “Ruins of the Mind,” she spoke on the importance of seeing ourselves the way God sees us and how our thoughts affect how we respond to our sufferings.
Our guest speaker, Katherine Meyer gave a wonderful workshop about domestic abuse. She defined abuse, provided typical characteristics of an abuser and an abuse victim then addressed how the body of Christ could help both of them. It was an intimate time speaking and answering questions about a sadly common problem in our world.
During the two main sessions, our pastor’s wife, Ann Stringer was our speaker. She spoke on the ruins of our lives and how God uses ruins to show us how much we need Him in the first session. In the final session, Ann addressed the different ways that God brings restoration to our lives that is successful in His eyes. She looks at six “So that” passages that point out the results God is looking for in using our ruins. We invite you to listen to those main sessions below.

What does it mean to be reverent towards God? Eli’s sons found out what it means to be irreverent to God the hard way. This is Part 1 to be continued next week.

No mother is perfect, and Hannah was no exception. While we definitely want to be thankful for our mothers this Mother’s Day, it would be amiss to not know and understand their human state. Let’s look at Hannah and her gift to God that came as the result of a sinful prompted request.

Here at First Baptist Church in Littleton, we have a wonderful group of women who are dedicated to the Word and strive to grow closer to God. We have all faced varying ruins of our lives. Suffering, pain, depression, aging, loss, isolation, are just a few of the ruins that we as women face, not to mention the everyday ruins of our lives that occur because of the presence of sin. We are not perfect, but our imperfect journeys are the things that God can use to point us to our need for His transforming power, and in so doing, redeem our hurts and ruins by using them as a tool to point others to their same need.
“Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 HCSB
Join us as Pastor Sam delves into examining the words Jesus spoke to the disciples to prepare them for the pain of separation from His physical presence. Jesus needed to prepare them with words they wouldn’t fully understand until after the cross, and after the Holy Spirit came to bridge that separation.
