Engage in SCWN to Ignite Chattanooga
Many of us are juggling so many balls and trying to balance work and life. While we want to keep our faith at the center of our lives, we sometimes get too busy to take a break and grow in the knowledge and truth of Christ.
As a busy working mom, I understand how hard it is to break away and invest in my own growth. Almost 5 years ago, I discovered Scenic City Women's Network and it seemed that God almost multiplied my time that was invested when I joined other faithful working women in coming together to be equipped, energized and encouraged.
No matter what season of life you're in, God can and will use the offering of your time and resources for His glory. We hope that you will choose this year to join us in igniting his land as we work for His Kingdom.
Here's a glance at the heart of Scenic City Women's Network. We'd love to have you attend our monthly luncheon, join or start a workplace Bible study, and be refreshed by our monthly newsletter. Also, in the near future, we hope to offer opportunities to be involved in new programs modeled after Titus 2 that encourage the transfer of wisdom to equip the younger generation. Stay tuned!
If you have other ideas about what Christian Working Women need, we'd love to hear them. Contact
