Fall 2022 Event Theme: Let's Heart if for the Ladies: Jesus' Phenomenal Female Kinfolk
                             Speaker: Rev. Dr. Imani Jones

What is Lantern Fellowship? 
Planned in the spring and fall each year by women of the Heartland Conference of the United Church of Christ, Lantern Fellowship is a time when women of all generations come together to enjoy faith, fun, and friends. Our oasis of Templed Hills is tucked into the peaceful beauty of wooded hills and trails where the spirit can find renewal. The planning team hopes you will invite a few friends and loved ones to share in the wonderful experience of the Lantern Fellowship.

Fall 2022 Program:
Jesus came from a lineage of phenomenal women who each occupied significant roles in their communities. These women transformed people's lives in powerful ways. Yet, their stories are often overlooked and their impact is largely unacknowledged. We will take time this weekend to explore the lives of those women, and consider the ways in which God's radical love and inclusivity is extended to them and us, regardless of gender and societal expectations or limitations.
