Today’s woman faces challenges in every area of her life: family, career, socially, health, financial, emotional, and spiritual. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming trying to manage it all. This ministry is here to offer hope and support as we encourage women to keep their focus on the cross, on Jesus.

“She clothes herself with the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), with strength and dignity (Proverbs 31:25), and with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience (Col 3:12). The beauty of the Lord rests upon her and establishes the work of her hands (Ps. 90:17).”

Through bible study, prayer, service, Christian fellowship, and a sincere heart for Christ you will be transformed by the Holy Spirit – whether you are a new Christian or a mature Christian – transformation is continual for those who seek the Lord. Through transformation, not only will you and your life be changed, but you will help change the lives of others – in your family, at work, at church, and in the community!

Women’s Ministry

We would like to introduce you to our new Women’s Ministry leader, Jan Reel. She has curly auburn hair, a smile that lights up a room, a southern accent…… and a heart for Jesus!! Please pray for Jan as she serves the women of our church. We asked her a few questions, and here is what she had to say.

Why do you love LNBC?

LNBC is our Family. This church and it’s people have been instrumental in so many seasons of our lives since first attending in 1997. Specifically for me, God has been “growing me up” here for 20 years! He’s done that through the people, the teachers, the pastors, the childcare workers, the Bible studies, the Sunday School, the VBS; I could go on and on. But, all that God has done in my life through this body of believers—those He placed here for times and seasons is — what made me want to serve our ladies in this particular way. I am honored to be able to do so!

How do you plan to love the women of LNBC?

I want to love our women by being honest, available, and encouraging to them. I want to love them by working with other women to equip and encourage them right where they are! By letting them know they are not alone. By working and providing avenues to connect them to other women. Our stories may be different, but our hearts still share the same longing to be loved, to feel safe and protected, to feel confident in our paths and in who we were made to be. The common denominator in all of those “longings” is that the answer is Jesus; and the way we get to know about Him and develop relationship with and understanding of Him—so that we can and will believe His promises—is through reading and studying and understanding His Word.

What is God’s call on you and what do you want to accomplish as our Women’s Ministry Leader?

Wow! I feel that God actually impressed this very thing on me during my prayer and quiet time not long ago. It was something so simple, yet powerful in so many ways. I feel that it is “to build up.” To build up and not tear down. To think of all the ways we tear each other down every day grieves my heart. It could be in the words we choose, the tone in our voice, the meditations of our hearts that eventually come out in disrespectful or divisive ways. The power that we hold in this regard is mighty. So, if we could become a body of women who build each other up—helping one another to ready themselves for the return of our King—by pointing one another to the Truth of God and His Word; if we could become a Community of Believers who encourage one another to stay the course, to do the hard things, to love and forgive and love some more—THAT would be a great accomplishment.

exhale logoAre you rushing through life…

…meeting demands, facing pressures … and realize you’re holding your breath? You’re holding in troubles, worries, and responsibilities.

What you need is to Exhale.

When we spiritually exhale we empty us of ourselves and the world in order to allow God to breathe Life into us afresh.

When we go through life failing to inhale the breath God breathes into us, our spiritual life begins to feel like dry bones.

We need Him to breathe life into us so that no matter what life is serving us, we can follow Him wholeheartedly.

Job 33:4 says, “The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life”

Exhale is a quarterly gathering of women from all seasons and stages of life which exists to place us in a posture for God to breathe life into our lives and our souls.

At each Exhale event you can expect to:

  • Hear an encouraging message
  • Worship through music
  • Enjoy coffee and dessert

Relax, Refresh, and Recharge alongside other women who can breathe out with you while saying, “Me too.”

This road to Exhale needs friends. It needs you. Join us for our next Exhale event, Thursday, November 2, 2017at 7:00pm in the Loft.
