U3B's Soul Sisters
Service | Outreach | Unity | Leadership
Our Soul Sisters women’s ministry exists to encourage and equip women in the establishment and pursuit of a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. In the response to the love of Christ we serve others in love, making great friends along the way. Our mission is simple, Love God and love others. God has a plan to reach others through our women’s ministry and we encourage each lady to take her part in it.

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God´s healing power in our lives through the "8 Recovery Principles." This experience allows us to "be changed." We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God´s grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power - Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
Celebrate Recovery meets each Wednesday night at 6:30pm.
U3B Celebrate Recovery will share the freedom from hurts, habits, and hang-ups found in a relationship with Jesus Christ in the small group and large group forum.

Lynn Watson is one of the Celebrate Recovery leaders. She started her journey with step study in 2011 which made her take a real look at her life and surrender completely to the Lord in January of 2012. She leads the women’s small group on Wednesday night and step study on Sunday nights. She is married to Jay Watson, the mother to two sons, and LaLa to three grandsons.

1 Timothy 6:11
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
The Pursuit is a ministry for men that encourages them to seek the things of God. It focuses on the creation of friendships between men and the process of discipleship among them. The goal is to establish a framework in which each man is being discipled in order to disciple someone else.
Men of all ages are welcomed. We desire inter-generational relationships among our men, so that the wisdom of our older members pairs with the vitality of our younger men to create an environment where all can thrive/grow spiritually. The Bible is our manual, and Jesus is our teacher.
Sometimes men discover that God is calling them into a deeper relationship. Many of us have found that we just can not do this alone. We see that God has placed certain Godly men in our lives to help us grow. He places these men in our path to help us become better servants, husbands, fathers, and friends. Many times, these men can help encourage us to better lead our families so they grow closer to God, closer to Jesus. They can help us become the servants that God would have us to be.
"The one who associates with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm."
