Dear sisters, daughters, mothers, and friends,
IF:Alton 2018 is almost here! Over the last year, God has been prompting, building relationships, challenging us, calling us deeper, healing wounds, reconciling, and creating a yearning and desire in our hearts for more.
We want to come alongside what the Holy Spirit began long ago and build upon it.
On February 9th and 10th, more than a million women around the globe came together for a 2-day event called IF:Gathering. They met in homes, churches, and community centers to look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel.
Since that weekend in February, women have continued to host IF:Gatherings around the world - where together they worship, pray, open the Word, listen to the same teachings on perseverance and discipleship, and experience the presence of God. Although the IF lineup has many well-known teachers, pastors, and authors, such as Jennie Allen, Christine Caine, Katie Davis Majors, and more, this gathering is not really about hearing your favorite speaker...however great he or she may be. Rather it is about participating in a generation of women who believe God at His word and desire to spend their lives well for His glory.
The vision of IF is to come alongside local churches to gather, equip, and unleash women to live out their calling as followers of Jesus in their communities.
This is where you come in.
This Friday evening, April 27th, and Saturday, April 28th, we will gather, as women, at The Bridge Church for IF:Alton. This event is open to ALL women in our community. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees.
If you're not already registered, we would love for you to join us. There is still time!
