Join women of all ages for a blend of great company, comfort food, inspiring messages, and encouraging discussion. As we enjoy brunch and getting to know one another, three women from the VPC community will share personal faith stories. These messages will illustrate God’s unfailing faithfulness when our dreams and expectations for life don’t match our reality. We may ask God for a way out of our circumstances, and instead, he provides a way through. Come discover how Christ is our WayMaker, helping us find peace in the present and hope for the future.
This event is hosted by VPC’s women’s ministries’ which also host Bible studies on Monday night and Tuesday morning. Check out their webpage at www.viennapres.org/wbs.

Donna James: After almost 30 years of a “seemingly” happy and solid marriage, and 8 years of ministering to and mentoring married and newly married couples, Donna was faced with the devastation of breaking her own marital covenant. Blindsided and devastated, she sought God for peace, understanding, and a refuge from the pain. God systematically provided all Donna sought out and much, much more!
Debbie Frankiewicz: Growing up, going to church “every time the doors were open” provided Debbie’s childhood with a strong sense of God’s love. She also experienced a the strict code of conduct expected by her Holiness denomination that had a lot to say about the sort of behavior expected of a “real” Christian. While youth group provided a sense of belonging, it was conditional on maintaining the outward appearance of a holy life. Fear was often used as the main motivator. By the time she graduated from her Evangelical university, Debbie was tired of all the rules and exhausted by her shame at being unable to measure up to their standard. She longed for the joy she felt as a child in Sunday school singing of Jesus’ love, but was wary of finding a new place to worship. Fortunately, God had a plan to help her find the way to a new spiritual home.
Sally Mitchell: Sally loves to laugh and have a fun time. Long before she turned 70, she’s had to accept that life is not always a laughing matter. Pain is real and life is full of it. But thanks to her faith, family and friends, she has learned that God uses our trials to show us how to trust Him and surrender to Him as he helps us persevere through life’s difficulties.
