Welcome To Women Alive!

We are excited you are here! At Women Alive we are dedicated to building and sustaining a safe place for women to grow in their relationship with our precious Savior and other women of all ages. With a society bent on squeezing Christ out of every aspect of daily life, we as women of faith need to support and lift each other up to ensure future generations have the opportunity to know and experience Christ's love and free gift of salvation. So please check out our many hosted events and opportunities to engage with other women and experience a deeper intimacy with Christ. Check the links below for information on bible studies, day retreat, Girls' Night Out events, faith talks, and other meaningful and fun activities. We would love to have you at our next gathering!
Matthew 18:20 - For where two or more gather in my name, there I am with them.
Blessings and love,
The Women Alive Team

Check out our Faith Talk from Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020

October 3rd at 10:00 am, we gathered for a Faith Talk featuring Kim Marshall speaking about self care! We enjoyed reconnecting with each other for this in-person event with worship and fellowship, social distance-style.
Thanks to those who joined us, the WA Team

If you missed the event you can watch it online:
Women Alive presents: Nazarene Bible Fellowship
Life, Lies & Love - a 5-week inductive Bible study into First John.
Our desire is that we will be challenged to know and serve God better through engaging group discussions, a tidbit of thought-provoking homework, and insightful instruction.  Please join us whether you are new or experienced in Bible study.  Identical in-person classes will be led by Kelly Yam (virtually) on Tuesday mornings 10:00-12:00 and Tuesday evenings 6:00-8:00 in the Fellowship Hall, Sept 15 – Oct 13.  Materials will be provided in class at no cost.  Please, pre-register online.
For those that are not able to join in person, class videos will be posted here on the website on Wednesdays after the class and course materials will be available in the church office for pick-up.

No childcare available for the evening class.
Our monthly meetings are a combination of encouragement, discussions and sharing. We are self-funded through donations and the gifting of fabric. We have been blessed.
We are always looking to expand our ministry and share the joy of serving with new members. Interested in quilting, serving or making new friends? We meet the last Thursday of each month from January through September.
Our Sew Much ladies have been busy!! As a group, they have already made and donated 550 masks! They are also partnering with another organization, Nor-Cal Community Masks (Facebook), who have been instrumental in finding, motivating, encouraging and communicating the institutions that are requesting masks. Their group has donated over 3000 masks! While Sew Much has all the fabric they need right now, there is a nationwide shortage of 1/4 and 1/8” elastic. If anyone has any stashed at home, they would appreciate the donation.

Here's a message from Cynthia Strickland to the Sew Much members, and to YOU if you want to get involved right now:

Hello Ladies, I hope you all are doing well in light of the worlds’ struggle with this Covid 19 virus.  It’s a trying time and can, if we let it, lead to panic.  I know I have been tempted to go there a few times.  There is one word that I feel God gave me to help me during this time.  “ACCEPT”  Accept the circumstances, accept the anxiety, accept the grief, accept the isolation, etc.  Then let God lead us through the circumstances doing what we have been told, to be prudent and wise in our choices to minimize the spread of this virus.  Stay home and stay healthy!  We can do that.  At the same time we can pray for peace, for healing and love and help others to the extent that we can.  

One of the ways we can help and occupy ourselves during this time of sheltering at home is to make masks for our family, friends and the medical community.  If you have been keeping up on the news, you know that the medical community is in desperate need of supplies.  I am planning on making some masks to give away as they are one of the PPE (personal protective equipment) that are in dire need and something that can be made easily.  I will be giving you a few links on tutorials on how to make them for those of you who may be interested and have the means to do so.  It, I believe, is a great project that our ministry can be involved in.  I will be posting my finished masks on our Facebook page for Women Alive – “Oronaz Women’s Ministry”.

We would also like to see pics and comments of any projects you are working on by emailing them to Jennie Bishop and she will make sure they get posted to the Facebook page. This will be a great way for us to stay in touch.  😊  (Jennbishop83@yahoo.com)

Mask tutorials:

These are just two of many.  You can just type in the search bar on You Tube “Face Mask Tutorial”
Also, please read and check out this link about how we can donate to the medical community near and abroad: getusppe.org

Love and Blessings, Cynthia

Special Events

Save the Date:
Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our retreat for 2020 has been cancelled. We look forward to Spring 2021 when we can all gather together again for a time of worship and fellowship in the beautiful setting of Mt. Hope.

Faith Talk:
We eagerly anticipate the time when we will be able to get together in larger groups so that we can participate in a Faith Talk this fall! This will be a fun time of relaxation and renewal, which many of us will need!
Our purpose here at Women Alive is to provide opportunities for women of all ages to connect with other women and build relationships, study God's Word, learn, personally grow, and cultivate intimacy with Jesus Christ. We would love to have you join us on this journey!
Love, your WA leadership team
