What You Missed
We’re excited to announce the launch of Church Connect, a new partnership between 4word and local churches to help them connect and engage working women in their communities! 4word’s Caitie Butler shares how a busy schedule and long hours combined with a lack of small groups tailored towards the challenges faced by women who work left her feeling displaced at church.
For over five years, 4word has been an advocate for women in the workplace. Many of the women we impact, however, are continuing to feel disconnected from their churches and aren’t sure how to remedy their situation. Enter 4word’s new Church Connect program! Caitie Butler, Church Connect Program Manager, talks with us today about the program and her dreams for it.
