About The Yada Yada Prayer Group (Yada Yada Series)
by Neta Jackson

What do an ex-con, a former drug addict, a real estate broker, a college student and a married mother of two have in common?

Nothing, or so I thought. Who would have imagined that God would make a prayer group as mismatched as ours the closest of friends? I almost didn’t even go to the Chicago Women’s Conference—after all, being thrown together with five hundred strangers wasn’t exactly my “comfort zone.” But something happened that weekend to make us realize we had to hang together, and the “Yada Yada Prayer Group” was born! When I faced the biggest crisis of my life, God used my newfound Sisters to show me what it means to be just a sinner saved by grace.

When: Wednesday, August 20, 6-8 PM
Where: The home of Christine Anderson | LakeRidge Green Townhomes, Ashland, VA 
Cost: Purchase your own book (The Yada Yada Prayer Group (Yada Yada Series) by Neta Jackson)

He Loves Me!About
He Loves Me! by Wayne Jacobsen

So many Christians believe God’s love is fickle: when they sin, He turns away in disgust and anger. They vacillate between “He loves me” and “He loves me not” because of their behavior. That reasoning, writes Wayne Jacobsen, is as flawed as pulling petals from a daisy. Rather God’s love is sturdy, enduring, and undisturbed by people’s failings because God loves humankind not for what they do–but who they are. They are God’s beloved creation.

Startlingly honest and empathetically written, He Loves Me! reveals the facts of God’s relentless grace. Readers will learn how to live consciously, confidently in this love all the time. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion help make these truths practical and life-changing. 

When: Wednesday, July 23, 6-8 PM
Where: The home of Susan Werderman | (Intersection of Patterson and Gaskins)
Cost: Purchase your own book (He Loves Me! by Wayne Jacobsen)
