Women's Bible Study

Five Week Women’s Lent Study Begins Tuesday, March 22nd
“He Chose the Nails” by Max Lucado

Tuesday Morning Class – Tuesday Women’s Bible Study – 9:30 a.m. Parlor (Kay Birkholz, leader)
Tuesday Evening Class – UMW Dangerous Women – 6:30 p.m. Parlor (Ilene Miller, leader)

This study explores the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. The hill of the cross is
rich with the gifts of God’s grace. These gifts he didn’t have to give. The only required act for our
salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we
need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper,
“I did it just for you.”

Women’s Luncheon & Style Show Speaker

On Saturday, April 30th, the women of FUMC will have their 2nd Annual Women’s Luncheon and Style Show at 10:30 a.m. in the Family Life and Worship Center with an inspirational speaker.  Lynette Connell will join us as our special guest speaker.

In 1999, Lynette Connell Kunz’s life changed forever.  Working as a leading sales and marketing consultant, Lynette had little ideas of the new chapter God was about to unfold.  She miraculously survived a roll-over car accident breaking her neck leaving her a quadriplegic, paralyzing her from the chest down.  Having been told that she might not sing again because of paralyzed vocal cords and diaphragm, Lynette was determined to prove the doctors wrong.  After six months, doctors were astounded to discover both of Lynette’s vocal cords were completely restored.  This miracle was surely a sign from God to help Lynette embark on what she remembers from an early age:  God’s calling to use her in some special way to minister to others.

Prior to her accident, as an undergraduate student enrolled in the Voice Department of Texas State University, Lynette was cast in leading roles in Puccini operas such as Gianni Schicchi, Suor Angelica, and La Boheme.  Shortly thereafter, she became a leading singing-actress in the hometown theater Vive Les Arts performing leading roles in Hello Dolly, Oklahoma, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Romance/Romance.  

Lynette has never let her spinal cord injury keep her from living her life to its fullest.  The Institute for Research and Rehabilitation invited Lynette to film a video teaching series for women with spinal cord injury.  Her ministry for reaching out to others quickly grew.  She resumed her talents on stage through performance in a special concert entitled Lynette and Friends sponsored by Vive Les Arts, where she currently serves on the board.  

Lynette is an active member of Eels on Wheels, an Austin based disabled scuba diving group comprised of dedicated volunteers and disabled divers.  

Tickets are on sale now and we invite you to join us hear Lynette’s awesome testimony!
