Faithful Hearts

Dear Friends of Faithful Hearts and Journey Participants:

Our thanks to all who participated in the Journey this year!  It was really fun! We urge you each to thank your supporters and remind them that we will still accept pledges. As additional pledges come in, we are settled at a total of almost $20,000 raised!!

We have renewed our lease through June 2018, and the Fall classes and opportunities will be announced the last week of July.  We will continue with GGW classes, pastoral counseling by appointment, several book studies, support groups, and our various prayer ministries.  We will also have a 9-month mentoring/discipleship study that will require one instructional meeting and one mentoring interaction each month. We hope to offer some specials (like Yoga and self-defense!) from women who have those particular talents. Our main focus this summer will be finishing up this year’s classes and arranging our upcoming calendar to meet the needs of our busy women!  We would welcome input concerning interest in the on-going classes as well as day/time suggestions at

Beginning July 1, we will be welcoming two new Board members.  Tina McSweeny and Christina DenDulk will be joining our workforce, and we are thanking God for them.  If you wish to be involved in helping the leadership with special events or if you have a few hours a week to volunteer to keep the doors open, greet guests answer the phone, we’d love to hear from you at the email listed above. After 4 years of excellent and faithful service, Suzy Nisbet will transition off of the Board.  She has kept things organized and brought her business knowledge to us.  We thank God for her friendship and her service and will miss her tremendously!

The office will be closed July 6 until July 24.  Support groups, contact your leader to find out if and when you will be meeting. May you find relaxation and refreshment in your summer months!  We suggest that you set a goal of reading one of the Gospels like it’s a new best seller and notice things that are new to you.

This will be a fantastic year!  Get ready to learn and grow along with other Faithful-Hearted women.

We are thankful to God for you each, and thankful to you each for enabling another year of ministry!

With much love and joy,
Jan Kempe

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength.
~Mark 12:30

Women are often referred to as the heart of the home and the heart of the church, busy taking care of everyone. Who takes care of them?

Welcome to an exciting resource for all women who have a desire to learn more about their faith, to find godly counsel or maybe just a place to rest. This is a ministry for women offered by women who have been gifted, called by God and trained to offer you excellent ministry.

Faithful Hearts believes that every woman is a one-of-a-kind, gifted, beloved daughter of God. She deserves to be cared for, listened to, prayed with, and challenged to grow in her knowledge of God.

Twenty-first century American culture is ready to listen to the informed female voice. More than ever, Christian women need to intelligently articulate what they believe, and to live passionately in ways that responsibly represent the character of God.

Now there is a challenge! If you’re up to it, we’d like to take the challenge with you. Welcome to Faithful Hearts, a new kind of ministry for women! Whether you’re part of a church group or not, you belong. Visit us in our office, take part in our groups, or meet right here on the web. Make this a regular part of your day…enter conversations to make yourself at home in the sisterhood of truly amazing and diverse women.
