Breakout Sessions

Morning Options

Story Ropes

Story Ropes use narrow strips of fabric to represent events, emotions, people, and places in your story, giving meaning to the elements and helping you to hear the narratives of others and share your own story. This activity is hands-on, and the tactile nature of a Story Rope allows your timeline to become real and tangible thing to share with others.  This class will meet in the Lodge.

Led by Malialani Dullanty

Friendship Groups

You are invited to join the discussion! Find a spot at one of the tables in the Worship Center marked with a small group lead-er sign and join the discussion about what it means that “He Calls Us Beautiful”. These groups are designed to encourage questions and discussion while we meet new friends. Grab a cup of coffee and come relax with us. Spanish language discussion groups will be available and clearly marked.

Led by various Women’s Ministry leaders

Acoustic Worship

Ephesians 5:19 says “Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns and songs from the spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” God created us to be instruments with the ability to sing and make music. Join us for a fun, relaxed, and heartfelt session of acoustic worship and praise. Megan and Melanie are members of worship band Team Lift and lead women weekly to the heart of God through music, testimony and prayer. No experience necessary to join us, we will provide song books, you bring your voices!

Nuestro Puente / Our Bridge (Led in Spanish)

Despues de vivir en Chile, Tina comparte con nosotros una palabra alentadora sobre lo que significa vivir en una tierra que es nuestro hagar y, sin embargo, no es la nuestra. Encontrar el corazón de Dios para sus hijas que viven como extrañas en otra terra, y vivir vidas biculturales, constantemente dando sentido a nuestro mundo en dos idiomas. Lo maravilloso es que Dios habla nuestro lenguaje del corazón, y también el lenguaje de las personas con las que vivimos. El es nuestro puente.

Por Tina Osterhouse

After living in Chile, Tina will share with us an encouraging word about what it means to live in a land that is our home, and yet not our own. Finding God’s heart for his daughters who live as strangers in another land, and live bi-cultural lives, constantly making sense of our world in two languages. The wonderful thing is that God speaks our heart language, and also the language of the people with whom we live. He is our bridge.

God in an Unlikely Place: Lessons from the Skagit County Jail

For the past 13 years, Amy Muia has served as a chaplain at the Skagit County Jail and ministered among women struggling with addiction, homelessness, and despair. In this session, she shares the journey of seeing God appear in the darkest of places; discover-ing a mutual liberation by reading Scripture with those from vastly different life experiences; and how we can all grow deeper in our God-given authority–so we can witness a greater in-breaking of God’s kingdom here on earth.

Women Reaching Women

Tina brings passion, experience and authenticity as she talks to us about loving the women who live all around us enough to show them our true selves. We are imperfect women, fractured and brave, doing our best to love God and believe God loves us. God has put women all around us – in our neighborhoods, our kids’ schools, the coffee shops, and even the gym – women who want to know if they’re enough, and who want real relationships as much as the rest of us. We will look at the story of the wee little man, Zaccheus, and peek at how much that encounter with Jesus has to offer us.

Led by Tina Osterhouse

Recovery for Everyone

Are you weary of seeing people you love fall back into destructive behavior over and over again? Are you hungry for the kind of healing that leads to lasting change? Amy Muia, who ministers as a chaplain in the Skagit County Jail and serves as the co-director of New Earth Recovery, leads this session on the roots of patterns that keep others—and ourselves—trapped in cycles of bondage (the “why I do what I hate” of Romans 7). Come explore how addictions and other coping mechanisms function in our brains and hearts, and why it’s so hard to get free despite our best promises and resolve.

Led by Amy Muia
