Women Digging Deeper Weekend - February 5-7, 2016

A weekend designed for fervent study and intentional reflection



A Study of 1 Thessalonians

Taught by Alicia Williamson Garcia with Kim Bolton as worship leader!

We will take a close up look at the message of the gospel, the impact of the gospel, and how believers are to LIVE OUT the gospel. The gospel is the only message that truly transforms. As Believers, we must live in such a way so as to show that the gospel message is true – that Christ is risen indeed, because He is risen in me!

We will look at the example set by the church at Thessaloniki, and the encouragement they received from their spiritual leaders, Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy. Their life in Christ was known around the world. Yet, their leaders strongly encouraged them to excel still more. Why?

Session #3 – “THE TALK!”
WARNING!!!!! Lots of statistics and very sobering. Biblical answers on sexual purity and modesty. We will deal with the the heart, the mind, and the physical body. Clear biblical answers to why modesty matters!

Session #4 – No Fear! Jesus is coming!
A full explanation of the Rapture, the Day Of the Lord, and the Coming of Christ to set up His kingdom. Includes a chart with scripture verses pointing to each time period.

Kim’s Breakout Session

“I Feel Like A Basket Case”
There are quite a few “basket cases” in scripture. Can you think of a few? Bring your “basket” and your “case” to this Basket Weaving 101 kind of study that will be faith building and hope filled…FULL of all kinds of wonderful!

Special Guests

Bible Teacher
Alicia Williamson Garcia

There are multitudes of people who believe in the message of the gospel, but it takes a special gift to passionately articulate God’s truth in a way that truly impacts lives. Alicia has that ability.

“The heart of our ministry is the Word of God. God has given us music to open the heart and His infallible Word to fill the heart and change a life. “Worship, in its total essence is a response to the truth, not a reaction to circumstances,” says Alicia.
Blending articulate communication with heartfelt emotion, Alicia reaches her audiences with a clear knowledge of the gospel and a genuine desire to see lives changed by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Alicia holds the Master of Arts in Worship Studies, with a concentration in Leadership Degree from Liberty University. Undergraduate studies were accomplished at Winthrop College in Rock Hill, S.C., with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance. After college she traveled six years with the contemporary Christian group TRUTH, where she first recorded her signature song, “There Is a Hope.” Alicia began her ministry in 1993 and is now touring the country as a Keynote speaker and worship leader for Christian women’s organizations.

Alicia is an accomplished singer/songwriter, prominent Bible teacher, keynote speaker and television host.

Over the last few years God has opened doors for Alicia to partner with several other ministries. “God is faithful. He’s given me numerous opportunities to share in ministry with friends and mentors,” Alicia explains. Some of these ministries include Precept Ministries with Bible teacher, Kay Arthur, The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, IN Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, Women of Faith, Gaither Homecoming, The Brooklyn Tabernacle, Dr. Tony Evans of the Urban Alternative, TBN, The Inspiration Networks, CBN, and many more.

Alicia has recorded several CDs: “Alicia,” “There Is a Hope,” “The Rescue,” “Faithful Heart,” “Praise and Worship”, and “We Win”, “Rest in the Lord”, and “Glory Now”.

Alicia is married to Richard Garcia, and they have two sons, Michael Chandler and Richard “David”.

Musician and Worship Leader
Kim Bolton

One of the most gifted and extraordinary singer/speakers in Christian music today, Kim combines the best of innovative musical sound with the ability to captivate an audience through humorous, yet touching stories. Kim’s relationship to the Lord is palpable and her talent and energy know no limit!

Worship as you never have before as Kim glorifies God in story and song. You’ll quickly discover the heart of a psalmist as Kim ushers you into the presence of God and lifts your spirit through her expressions of contagious joy. Described by CCM Magazine as, “vocalist extraordinaire,” Kim is also unique in that she is a songwriter who also plays keyboard and sax!

Kim lights a spark of joy and laughter with contagious love and energetic Southern charm. Your tears of compassion will soon turn into tears of joy as Kim shares how God has moved mightily, but compassionately in her own life. As Kim recounts how her moments of despair turned to victory, she will ignite your spirit with a renewed love for both your Father God and your precious family. You won’t soon forget the stories Kim shares as they sink into the recess of your heart and leave you forever changed.

Kim has appeared on Christian television – CBN, CTN and INSP. She has worked with Luci Swindoll, Kathy Peel, Mary Welchel, Anne Graham Lotz, Babbie Mason and Twila Paris, just to name a few. This rare coupling of powerful speaking abilities and the heart of a psalmist have made Kim a highly requested guest artist and speaker for women’s conferences, retreats and special events.
