Dear Faithful Hearts,
Greetings this Easter season! Our classes are working like crazy to get through our books by the end of May! It is both exciting and terribly sad to think that these are our last classes at Faithful Hearts. We have had eleven wonderful years of realizing just how much God loves his girls, and I hope there is a small army of women who are now equipped to pass on this wonderful secret to the others in our lives.
March 26-28 the offices will be closed.
Here are some important dates of which we would like you all to take note:
Thursday, March 29, is known as Maundy Thursday. It is a day set aside to consider the personal, very human aspect of the sacrifice Jesus willingly made for us. It’s easy to forget to actually THINK about the events of Easter weekend and to miss the incredible story of love meant for each person who will listen, and think, and accept. We still need hosts for the following time slots: 1:00-2:00, 2:00-3:00, 3:00-4:00 and 4:00-5:00. Hosts quietly welcome guests, provide explanation of where to begin the “journey”, and make sure candles are burning and communion supplies are constantly replenished. Hosting with a friend is a really good idea. (firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping)
With this in mind, the Faithful Hearts office will be open on Thursday the 29th from 8am until 6pm for any who will come for a time of quiet prayer and reflection. We have a stunning presentation of the traditional stations of the cross in artwork by David Myers, a local, North Carolina artist. Come for 5 minutes or an hour, by yourself, with a friend or your family. Look. Think. Communion will be available for any wishing to partake. There is no cost for this. Just come.
Friday, April 6, is Game Night. Come at 6:00 for fellowship, fun, food and games with friends. These nights are so much fun!!
Enjoy this wonderful season, travel safely if that is in your plans, and stop by for a visit this Spring!
From Phyllis, Tina, Christina and Jan.

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.
