What's She Doing Here? The Messy Women in Jesus's Genealogy
Seductress. Prostitute. Outcast. Adulterer. Pregnant Unwed Teen. Who would highlight that kind of ancestry? Jesus would. Join Susan Tyner in examining how God wove the messy stories of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary together into His Big Story of salvation. And learn how He continues to redeem His children—one messy story at a time. Susan Tyner serves as Women’s Ministry Coordinator at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth, Texas. Susan and her husband, Lee, have five children, and an almost empty nest.

This is where faith and fitness meet. Cardio and strength training meet on Tuesday and Friday at the church from 9:00-10:15 a.m. Childcare is available with reservations.
Meals On Wheels (Kim Tramel)
Meals are prepared in a central kitchen in NLR and delivered in coolers to various pickup points around town for the driver to pick up. There are usually 8-14 stops per route. The recipients are often more hungry for your friendship than for the actual food. If you cannot deliver on your day you merely call the Meals On Wheels office and they will take care of getting a substitute from their staff.
