More About Our Speaker:
Julie Henning is an Amerasian born in South Korea during the Korean War. At age 13, she was brought to America by Pearl S. Buck and raised as her daughter. Julie will take you on a journey from her Amerasian roots to her life with the famous author, and finally into the family of God.
Today, Julie is a wife and mother of two married sons, wonderful daughters-in-law and five energetic grandsons. She is a retired educator from the Souderton Area School District, where she had facilitated a weekly Bible study before school. Her husband, Doug, is the family care pastor at their church.
Julie is also burdened for the cause of Amerasians, and has addressed their issues through newspaper articles, radio interviews, national television, and U.S. Congressional hearings. She has had the privilege of speaking to an audience at Carnegie Hall on behalf of the plight of Amerasians.
In January 2001, Julie and her husband were honored to present the Pearl S. Buck Woman of the Year Award to the Korean President’s wife, Madame Lee He Ho. In October of 2006, Julie also took part in presenting the same award to First Lady Laura Bush.
2019-20 Women’s Bible Study
NLD Women’s Bible Study exists to help women at New Life Dresher and in the greater community to know Jesus and to make Him known through the study of God’s word.
Women’s Bible Study is a great place to get to know other women deeply as we study God’s Word together. There are study questions for each passage to do ahead of time each week. And then a large-group teaching time, taught by a rotation of NLD women, is followed by small-group discussion. We offer the same content at two different times: Tuesday evenings from 7 pm-8:30 pm and Wednesday mornings from 9:15 am-11 am. Childcare is provided on Wednesday mornings for children below kindergarten. WBS meets at the church in Room 306.
This year we are studying Philippians, 1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus. These wonderful books were all written by Paul from Rome in the years leading up to his execution. As he became more certain of his impending death, Paul put pen to paper and wrote some of the most profoundly encouraging letters of the Bible. In these intimate letters, Paul writes to dear friends Timothy and Titus, whom he loves as sons, and a church which has supported his work faithfully from the beginning, to encourage and exhort them as they pursue maturity in Christ and the often-painful work of persistence in the face of adversity. Join us this year as we explore how Paul’s rich theology and words of hope can speak into our own lives and spur us to “press on toward the goal” (Philippians 3:14).

First Friday Fellowship
The women’s First Friday Fellowship Art Night is a creative community art-making experience – no artistic talent or experience necessary! Come see what unique project Linda Ruth has come up with this time! Check back here for more information about our next meeting.. We meet in Linda Ruth’s home (225 Parkside Lane, Glenside) and therefore need to limit the number of women to 15 because of the smaller space and also to provide an intimate and encouraging environment. See the graphic below for more information:
