Ladies: It's time to start preparing for another season of Apples of Gold! Apples of Gold is building up marriages, mothers, and lives worldwide. It's not just a mentoring program, it's not just a cooking class...it's a nurturing, inter-generational connection that teaches women how to love their husbands, love their children, and how to practice submission, hospitality, kindness, and purity. A new season of AOG will be held September-November 2018. Meetings will be Mondays (9/17, 9/24, 10/8, 10/15, 10/29, 11/5, 11/12) from 4:30-7:30 at First CRC in Edgerton. There are six lessons and then a grand finale supper with spouses. The first hour is a cooking demonstration, the second hour is a Bible study, and the third hour we enjoy the meal that was prepared. If you have participated in AOG in the past, you know what a blessing it is! Please encourage/invite someone new to participate in the program. If you are interested in being involved, please contact Karen Fey (507-227-6392), Fay Van Essen (507-920-0729), or Ruth Kooiker (507-879-3373).
