Coming Events

Where there is unity, God commands a blessing, even life everlasting! – Ps 133
There are so many opportunities to come together as one in Christ in our region; it can be difficult to keep track of them all. Therefore this list of coming events has been put together to help you plan your personal involvement and so you can hold all of these events and the people who lead and participate in your prayers. Thank you!

Women of enCOURAGEment will bring stories of courage and inspiration that will challenge and encourage us spiritually and relationally.

Speaker: Nilsa Rosado

"My Promised Land!" This is how Nilsa describes
Jamestown. You heard it right--Jamestown!


Enslaved to drugs and alcohol, Nilsa moved from Buffalo to
Jamestown to find a new way of life. Come hear this amazing story by an amazing woman who was touched by the hand of God and delivered from addiction her 2nd day in Jamestown.

Hear about the people that touched her and mentored her.
They were all used mightily of God to transform this bruised reed and this flickering light. Nilsa is a true heart with a powerful message of hope. If you don't already know Nilsa you will know her and love her as so many do....

Women of EnCOURAGEment Breakfasts

Saturday, 11 March at 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
At Christ Church, 3012 Route 430, Greenhurst

 Speaker: Bonnie Hurley--an amazing woman who started her ministry as a missionary at the age of 65 and has been going strong for the last 7 years. After becoming a widow at the age of 60, the Lord began to shape the woman who God saw and she was able to overcome the mental & emotional abuse of a very difficult childhood and marriage. Bonnie began to understand that she was loved as a child of God. She grew in the knowledge of who God had called her to be. So starting at the age of 65, Bonnie has had numerous trips to India and Africa. She will share her experiences through a slide show. All will be impacted by her testimony and you will leave encouraged in the work that God does in the hearts of His daughters.


Saturday, 8 April at 8:30 a.m.


Breakfast followed by speaker: Heidi Bogue. Overcoming incredible circumstances as a young girl in a very dysfunctional family, Heidi found herself to be on her own at the age of 12. Heidi looks at the world through the eyes of one who has been redeemed from the powers of darkness and moves with a heart of love and understanding for lost humanity.  Heidi married Jon Bogue two years ago and the fruit of their union has been a testimony to the work of the Holy Spirit in her life as she and Jon impact the culture.
