Women in the Word 2015

We’re excited to invite you to our second annual Women in the Word conference, Friday and Saturday, November 6-7 at Emmaus! Women in the Word Ministries claims Luke 8:15 as its theme verse. In the Parable of the Sower, Christ himself explains that those who receive the seed in good soil “are the ones who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience” (Luke 8:15, ESV). Our objectives for the conference are:

  • To challenge and encourage women with in-depth study of the Bible and practical application to life.
  • To enhance fellowship among old friends and new around the person of Christ and love for God's Word.
  • To encourage a spirit of praise, thanksgiving, and joy through inspiring music and testimony.

Our speaker is Dr. Sue Edwards, a gifted teacher and, more importantly, student of the Word. Her topic is God's Big Ask: Walk with Her - Loving, Understanding, and Guiding a New Generation of Godly Women. Our very special musical guest is Sara Groves; she will be leading music for the conference and closing our time together with a concert in the Emmaus Marble Chapel!

Please join us! Make plans with friends in your local area to spend the weekend in Dubuque—studying the Word, singing with Sara Groves, and enjoying fun and fellowship with friends, old and new. The cost of the conference is $50, which includes Saturday lunch at Emmaus, the Sara Groves concert on Saturday evening, and even some special treats like Eric’s Famous Scones! You won’t want to miss it!
