The 2020 focus for the Women’s Ministry of Sisters Community Church is “Girlfriends Connecting,” aimed at providing quality programs for women to connect with one another and build relationships in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Local author Nancie Carmichael is the keynote speaker for the inaugural brunch event, “The Power of Home,” on Saturday, March 21, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room at Sisters Community Church.

The event is free, open to all women, and will include three demonstrations: “Organizing with Nancie,” led by Nancie Carmichael, drawing on information from her recently published book “The Unexpected Power of Home”; “Decorating with Cookie,” led by Cookie Kutz, focusing on accessorizing one’s home; and “Cooking with Kelly & Carol,” where Carol Hodges will coach Kelly Bither through making a fool-proof pie crust.

Reservations may be made by calling Carol Hodges at 480-390-3638.
