Join us for a surprising look at Friendships! One of the most powerful and gracious gifts God gives to us is friendship. Friendships that influence and transform our lives. Friendships in families, friendships of childhood, friendships we learn from and friendships that last! We will explore the qualities of healthy, spiritual friendship and how they become part of our story and design that God desires for us. And we will talk about the greatest friendship of all...being a Friend of God! See you there!
Our speaker this weekend is Betsy Laster who was the former Women's Ministry Director here at Cascade. Betsy has also been Women's Director at Northshore Church and at CRISTA Ministries. She holds a Masters in Pastoral Studies from Multnomah Seminary and more importantly has been married to her husband Jerry for 47 years, has two married daughters, and five amazing grandchildren! God has also blessed her through the years with a few amazing people who have given her the precious gift of friendship! Betsy enjoys knitting, quilting, reading and gardening!
