The Womens' Ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church invites you to Feast Not Famine featuring Rachel Pontier (First Presbyterian Church, Macon, GA)
November 16, 5:00 p.m. | $14 per person
This annual women's event is Wednesday, November 16! This event is for the women in our congregation and anyone that God lays on your heart to invite. Feast Not Famine provides us with a time to focus on the feast that God has set before us. During the holiday season we often have unmet expectations due to relational conflict and strife. That can lead to frustration and disappointment that looks like famine. How do we prepare our hearts to feast on the goodness of the Lord when the people around us are not cooperating? Rachel Pontier will be speaking to that topic and encouraging us in Christ. The event also includes a Holiday Market (open from 5:00 - 6:30) featuring the talents of our Covenant ladies—it is a great way to get some shopping done as well as enjoy and support your sisters in Christ. Reservations open Sunday, October 16, at 9:00 a.m.
Nursery childcare will be available from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. for children ages 5 and under; please email [email protected]
to make a reservation.

Speaker: Rachel Pontier, First Presbyterian Church (Macon, GA)
Rachel is a native Iowan but has spent most of her adult life south of the Mason-Dixon line. She graduated from Dordt College in 2005 and then promptly left the country and spent 4 years as a missionary teacher in Managua, Nicaragua. Recognizing her time in Nicaragua was coming to a close, she enrolled at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis where she earned a Masters in Theological Studies.
In 2012 she joined the staff at Christ the King Presbyterian Church in Houston, TX. After five wonderful years in the Lone Star State, she decided to move to Macon, GA, where she primarily works with young adults and women at First Presbyterian Church. She would love to talk to you about professional beach volleyball, baking bread, or anything related to The Lord of the Rings.
