Women’s Seminar 2021

WOMEN’S SEMINAR — Oct.1-2, 2021

The theme of this year’s Women’s Seminar is Change: “…for you have not passed this way before.” — Joshua 3:4
We will be hearing from ladies of different ages about change and the faithfulness of God in life’s different situations. All of us face changes and new winds in life on several different levels. There are difficult changes tinted by sorrow and grief as well as those with the charm of novelty and excitement. The common factor to both is that we haven’t experienced them before. Change always takes us away from the safe and familiar to a road we haven’t passed before. God’s promise yet remains: He is with us and His presence is leading us.

This fall the seminar is arranged using a new format. All three main sessions are internet sessions that you can follow through the YouTube channel of Helsinki church. In addition to these, on Saturday afternoon we will gather in small groups around Finland, so everybody can experience fellowship and share their thoughts on the theme of the seminar. So, you may invite ladies to your home in a modest fashion: It suffices that there are seats on the sofa or on the floor, and coffee would be just an added plus! We are collecting the small group contact persons’ contact info in order to send them the materials to support the Saturday afternoon discussion. Also, we want to help people find themselves a small group. Signing up for the Saturday small groups as well as informing about your small group are both done using the Registration Form. You may sign up until September 26, 2021.

Also, we want to encourage ladies to get together around the other sessions too!
The registration fee for the event this year is voluntary (recommendation: 20 €).
