How did Flame originate?

God started FLAME. He set afire some women in the church to pray passionately, other women were inspired to start Bible studies and attend Bible studies, one group of women began to meet as a “girls night out” for movies and it grew into an evening of prayer and worship. Another woman was impressed by a strong need for mentors. Gradually God made each of these groups aware of the others. A few ladies began to pray that God would reveal what the next step should be. As they have prayed, it became clear that an umbrella organization was needed to build up those that are already leading and encourage others to find a spot to connect.

What is Flame?

Flame is an umbrella term for women’s ministry that includes:

Large Community Events

Flame partners with other organizations to bring in large community events.  Speakers such as Melissa Ohden and Pam Tebow have been brought to our area.  These events are used to promote awareness.

Monthly large group meetings

Large group meetings are held for the purpose of allowing women to hear speakers on topics relevant to women and give women another opportunity to meet one another and build relationships.  Most monthly meetings will be held on the 3rd Monday of the month.

Current meetings are posted on the homepage of this website under events and also on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/IgnitingTheFlame.

Bible studies

One of the primary goals of Flame is to help women grow spiritually and provide places where they can get to know one another on a level deep enough to share in transparent, real ways.  Bible studies are key to this goal.  Bible studies are held in homes, at churches and are also available on-line.

Flame maintains an extensive Bible study library.  Anyone may borrow a study from the library.  A current listing of available resources may be obtained by emailing Teresa Janzing at jtjanzing@telebeep.com.  

We encourage anyone to borrow a study and use it for your personal use or start a group study.

We’re also willing to provide support for you as you start a study for the first time.

You may also contact Teresa to find out what studies are currently meeting  and what topic they are studying.  Some studies are posted under events on the home page, but some are not.

On-Line Bible Studies

On-line Bible studies are a convenient way for a woman on the go to be part of a study.  On-line studies may be joined at any time and are available at any time during the day. On-line Bible studies are hosted on Facebook groups and also use email.  They usually consist of reading from the Bible, shared videos or books on the topic and opportunities to share comments or thoughts on the group.  Each study is highly individual in content and approach.

Check the events on the homepage or contact Teresa Janzing to find out about current on-line studies. jtjanzing@telebeep.com
