Westport Christian Church hosting women’s conference

Westport — Westport Christian Church, will be hosting a one-day women’s conference Saturday, March 2. All area women are invited to come for worship, spiritual growth, and fellowship with other Christian women.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with a free continental breakfast following, and will continue until 3 p.m. The cost is $20 and includes a free lunch. There will be games, door prizes and gift bags.

Chalk artist John Lowry will give a presentation. The speakers are a teaching team from Bloomington, consisting of Dr. Marsha Turner-Shear and her niece, Joni Noel.

Marsha Turner-Shear works as an adjunct professor of English and education for Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana University and Indiana State University. She is a contributor to Reflecting God, the quarterly devotional from the Church of the Nazarene. She teaches a women’s Bible study at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church as well as speaking at retreats and other women’s ministry events. She and her husband, Stuart, host a small group Bible study in their home.

Joni Noel serves with her husband, Brad, in the Athletes in Action ministry at Indiana University. They point administrators, coaches, trainers and student athletes to Christ through large group meetings, small group Bible studies, and one-on-one discipleship and fellowship. She has a Bachelor of Science in elementary education. She taught five years as a first and second grade teacher for Monroe County Community Schools. She now home- schools her three children. Joni serves in lay ministry to women and college students at Sherwood Oaks Christian Church in Bloomington. She also speaks at retreats and other women’s ministry events.

Due to size constraints, per-registration is required. For more conference information, see the church's website at or call 812-591-3807.

The purpose of this conference is to give women a local place to meet, worship and learn in a one-day format with other Christian women. We understand that many women cannot afford to take two to three days off from work, stay at hotels, and be away from their families to attend the large multi-day women’s conferences.
