Ministering to one another in new ways in 2020
TWIST (Transforming Women in Spiritual Training) | by Nancy Kellogg
When our nation shut down last spring, our TWIST class had just days to act. Could we transfer the value and beauty of the “TWIST Sister-hood” we’d nurtured in person, beyond the comfort of our shared coffee, hugs and study discussion during our in-person meetings? Would women be willing to connect virtually…or would it feel too cold and impersonal? Much to our delight, attendance actually soared over Zoom! Women yearned for connection and through our Zoom group, they have had a chance to explore how to personally navigate their own challenges, with peace and assurance of Christ’s presence.
Pressing forward into winter, TWIST sisters are thriving! Bolstered by our common experience, bonds are being forged, as hearts and prayer needs are shared. Taking leaps in Bible knowledge, women are growing steadily in deep love for God, as He alone meets our needs for personal revival.
While we cannot wait for the joy of a warm embrace of our TWIST sisters again someday, (and sharing around that cup of coffee!), we continue making every effort to be surrendered , obedient and to serve Christ, our focus and delight!
The mission of Transforming Women in Spiritual Training (T.W.I.S.T.) is to connect women in authentic community and bridge life-stage questions with shared wisdom and Godly experience. We host a multi-generational study that incorporates Christian growth materials, daily Bible reading and group discussion. Within TWIST, explore spiritual habits, experience corporate prayer and friendship of women of all ages. At Highlands on a typical Tuesday morning, you’d smell coffee wafting from the room where TWIST meets, hear laughter and lively conversation. Now, on Zoom, we welcome you with a warm smile and a virtual hug if you need it! We desire to form deep relationships with women, which is why we fondly refer to each other as “TWIST Sisters.” Come! Share your life and journey as we grow in Christ together.
