Women’s Bible Study: Psalm 103 Study

Join other women weekly in finding the invaluable joy of studying God’s word. This simple but deep approach found in Pam Forster’s guide gives us bite-sized portions that will leave us encouraged and excited as we discover time for God’s word in our lives. Fridays 7:00-9:00pm, led by Anya Chantiny and Jen Riedl. Contact: anya.chantiny@gmail.com.

Eat Pray Walk - Eastside

You’re invited to discover what God is doing in our Eastside neighborhoods!  How?  By praying while walking the streets! Come learn to pray, listen to God’s Spirit, and be instruments of his light and love to our neighbors.  We will conclude the prayer walk with a meal in the neighborhood to get to know local business owners. The group will meet on a Saturday, once a month.  Our first walk will be September 23rd, 10:30 am. For further info, please contact Joanna Montesino: hisdelight3@gmail.com.

Maker Moms

Maker Moms is a place for moms to take a short break from parenting, meet up with other creative ladies, and spend some time creating. Each meet-up centers around a curated craft, and will offer a chance to talk about topics ranging from inspiration to identity. Come reconnect with your creative side, get to know other moms at Imago Dei and explore that part of you that’s made in the image of the Creator! $10 cost for supplies for each meetup. Contact Breena Bard: breena.bard@gmail.com.

Hiking - Reveal Eastside

Come join us as we build friendships and get to know the Lord more while exploring what He’s put all around us. If you can walk and talk at the same time, you’ve got what it takes to hike. For more information or to sign up for a hike, connect with our Facebook group by searching “Reveal Eastside” and looking under the Groups tab.

Running - IDC Runners

Join the IDC Runners—all runners and speeds welcome! We pray for our city, then spend time on the Springwater Trail running through parts of our neighborhood where change may seem impossible—but seeking Jesus in whom all things are possible! Two meetup times are available: Wednesday at 6:00am or Sunday at 6:00pm. Contact Meg DuMez at rakasab@gmail.com for more info and to sign up.
