Missionary Support Emphasis

Joel & Stephanie Swanson Toulouse, France

Growing up in a missions-minded family, Stephanie learned about God’s work overseas through missions conferences, biographies, and hosting missionaries.  As a teenager, she initiated missions projects in her church and dreamed of serving on the foreign field. 

Joel grew up in a Christian home in New Jersey, and was exposed to missions at an early age.  In 2007, while teaching English in Ukraine, Joel began to sense a call to missions in non-English-speaking Europe, which led him to serve as a missionary with MTW (Mission to the World, the missions organization of the Presbyterian Church in America) in Ukraine. 

Joel and Stephanie married in 2014 and serve together in Toulouse, France, a growing city with aviation, aerospace, and high-tech industries.  There are over 120,000 university students and many young professionals.  Like much of France, the spiritual climate is resistant, even post-Christian.  In France, the Protestant faith was nearly exterminated by centuries of persecution.  Working alongside nationals, the MTW team has helped establish three area churches and a fourth is working toward independence.  Stephanie and Joel’s creativity and gifts in teaching, music, drama, English, and graphic design help them serve the church in a wide variety of evangelistic outreaches such as children’s and youth ministry, music outreaches, and English clubs and classes.  Their goal is to make contacts for evangelism, and disciple the lost generation: children, youth, and their families. 

Join Joel and Stephanie in praying that God will bring hope and healing to the spiritually hungry people of France, where only 1 percent are evangelical Christians and millions have never heard the gospel.

Women's Bible Study

to Apr 10

Women's Bible Study

Monday evenings, beginning January 23, we will unpack the book of Proverbs in a 9-week study of A Woman's Wisdom: How the Book of Proverbs Speaks to Everything, by Lydia Brownback.

This study shows how the Bible speaks to real life issues such as money, purity, marriage, and the day-to-day grind.  This book contains three parts:
     1. What is wisdom and why does it matter?
     2. Six things wise women know
     3. A portrait of wisdom
A Woman's Wisdom gives women a way to be wise, to know the very Author of wisdom, and to understand how to apply His relevant riches.

     This 9-week study begins January 23 and runs through mid-April.
     Monday evenings 7:00-8:30pm in the church's main level classroom
     Arrangements can be made for babysitting if needed.

 

THIS STUDY IS OPEN TO ALL WOMEN WHO ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD BETTER. 

If you are interested, find contact information for our church here:  http://www.hannacitypres.com/contact/
