OGLESBY — Women At Our BEST (Building, Encouraging, Strengthening and Teaching) will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, at the Oglesby Union Church in Oglesby. All area women are invited to attend this free event. Childcare will also be offered.

Former Tri-City area resident Jean “Babe” Bufton, now of Goshen Ind., will present her message “Hope For the Days Ahead” taken from her recently published book of the same title. With wit and encouragement she shares Hope with timely truths, personal examples and positive promises from God’s word. Her wealth of experience and keen insight as to the needs of women derive from her many years as director of women’s ministries at The Church at Rocky Peak in Chatsworth, Calif. She and her husband, Bill, also minister to couples and families. After being in the business world, they felt called into this much needed ministry They founded Heartline Ministries in 1994.

Georgia Radtke will lead the group in songs and also provide special music. Light refreshments will be served. The prayer room will be open from 6 to 9 p.m.
