Coming fall of 2017

Pearls are frequently mentioned in the New Testament, and were considered by the ancients among the most precious of gems, and were highly esteemed as ornaments.  The kingdom of heaven is compared to a "pearl of great price."

In the book of Matthew pearls are used metaphorically for anything of value, or perhaps more especially for "wise sayings."

No mention shall be made of coral or of crystal; the price of wisdom is above pearls.       Job 28:18 ESV

The heart of PEARLS is to connect older women with younger women in a mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walk with Christ. Women invest in the lives of each other through encouragement, guidance, listening, laughing and loving.  The goal is to form strong and lasting relationships that are a source of support, growth and strength.  A mentoring relationship between an older and younger woman will be filled with treasured pearls of wisdom.  Wisdom gained through life experiences and walking with God.
