IF: Gathering Feb 7 & 8, 2020
We're doing it again! IF:Gathering 2020 will be live-streamed at Lakeway Church. A dozen+ Jesus-loving women will be speaking to us about what it means to live out our faith -- with incredible wisdom, humor, humility and love. Did you just whip out that mobile and save the date on your digital calendar? Why not? Oh, you did. Yes and amen! We'll see you then.
Human Trafficking is CLOSER than you think!
The Refuge, a facility for the long-term rehabilitation of girls who are survivors of domestic minor child sex trafficking, is now a permanent outreach of The Lakeway Church. It is supported financially as well as with volunteer time and effort. The Women’s Ministry Steering Committee has a subcommittee, chaired by Carole Dueser, that is continually developing ways in which we can be of service. Current involvement:
- A Worship Team brings a short evening service to the girls and house moms one night every month. Also, the Team takes dinner, which is prepared by a Food Committee. There are 10 members on the Team, each completing extensive volunteer requirements in order to have direct contact with the girls, and they rotate going five at a time.
- Thanks to the efforts of Sharon Rogers, craft kits are being sent with the Worship Team and distributed to the girls for an after-dinner activity.
- Members of TLC’s Pottery Class are cutting and firing DOVE-shaped tiles, which are part of the Dove Tile Project Kits being shipped across the country. Volunteers are needed and appreciated. Time: Monday, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, Youth Building.
- How can you help: The Refuge is continually looking for therapists, house moms and therapeutic care staff. Please go to https://therefugeaustin.org for additional information.
