Live Cooking Demonstration and Quick Recipe Ideas with Cindy Marlar – After being in the classroom as a teacher, Cindy decided to take a break to be at home with her three girls. While at home, her creativity went from the classroom to the kitchen and she decided to start teaching cooking classes to help people realize cooking is not hard and by making recipes simple and easy to follow, she hoped to empower families to try cooking and enjoying a meal together. Around the same time, Cindy established Cindy’s Suppers and provided meals for families who didn’t want to cook or had no time at all to get it done. For three years she was blessed to help feed many families each week. Although Cindy currently works for Re-Max, guiding and teaching people through the process of buying or selling their home, we’ve managed to coax her out to share her delightful story of how and why she got into the business of cooking while sharing her fantastic recipes. Cindy’s specialty is making quick and delicious meals all family members love (even the kids!) with a short list of ingredients you probably already have on hand. Cindy’s presentation will include samples for each attendee and a recipe book of her favorite meals to take home with you!

Love Where You Live with Carol Roper – Have you ever felt unseen? Like you don’t belong? Or are you scared to step out of your comfort zone and welcome strangers into your life?Remember being the new kid at school and panicking every time your lunch shift started, wondering who you’d sit with? Most of us have felt this way at least once in our lives. But that’s not how God wants it to be. God wants us to know we belong to Him, first and foremeost, and to a community of believers. Sometimes we’re the gatekeepers, preventing others from coming into our circle of frineds, while other times we’re the ones longing to belong. In this teaching Carol Roper, podcaster, blogger and speaker, will delve into how God calls us to love where you live, even if that means you’re not a part of that community yet, or are scared to welcome people who are unfamiliar to you. Carol longs to bring a circle of women together to form a mighty army fighting for our familiues, homes, communities and churches, and reveals how God did this through one woman in the Old Testament.

Praise and Worship with Elise Roper Younts – From the time she was a small child, Elise has loved to sing. Her home church encouraged her gift, frequently asking her to sing, and her passion for music flourished. From there she studied voice and sang at numerous churches and competitions. Elise attended North Greenville University and was accepted into Joyful Sound, where she traveled most weekends with her team, singing and leading worship at churches in the area. Her voice developed even more during those years, and so did her faith, as she experienced the power of music to usher people into the presence of God in an even greater way than she had before. Elise desires to continue bringing others closer to Him through her voice.
