A retreat entitled LADIES IN PRAYER SERVICE (LIPS) was held March 10th by the women of Springs of Grace Lutheran Church, Boiling Springs, SC at the church. The LIPS Retreat was held at 9:30 am so the ladies came in their pajamas, they prayed and then had a potluck breakfast. After which they had a lecture on Mary Magdalena from a group member, Jane Lewis. Jane also purchased a video for the group called “Unveiling Mary Magdalena” narrated by Liz Curtis Higgs. It was a very informative lecture and video. All of the members then dawned their PARAFFIN LIPS for a picture. They had a great fellowship!
One of the many current projects these same ladies (LIPS) have taken on is helping Mary’s House. A local home for battered women with their children, a Faith Home Crises Center run by donations. Springs of Grace has given them toiletries, necessities, and started them a library for all ages. The ladies and children may take the books with them when they leave because the LIPS will continue to replenish the library.
