The Sherman Congregational Church will hold a women’s brunch April 29 at 9:30 a.m.

The theme of the brunch at the 6 Church Road church will be “In the Waiting Room.”

The speaker will be author and church member Tara Alemany, who speaks throughout the country on topics related to business, leadership and faith.

“As women, it can be challenging when we are faced with times of inactivity,” Alemany said. “We are so accustomed to being constantly on the go that when God calls us to be patient, it feels foreign and uncomfortable.”

“We look for ways to keep ourselves occupied, to feel useful. Yet God wants us to be patient, seeking His will,” she said. “When we refuse to rest, when we seek to be constantly active, we miss out on something precious.”

Alemany will speak following the brunch of homemade breakfast casseroles, pastries, fruit and beverages provided by the church’s Mission and Social Outreach Committee.

This event is free, but free will donations will be accepted.
