Come and join us on Tuesday mornings for our weekly bible study. During Lent, we will explore each of our weekly spiritual disciplines in conjunction with the weekly scripture. If you are not a bible expert, fear not. If you hope to be a bible expert after being a part of the class, you may not be! But if you are looking to see how the Scripture teaches us to live more fully into the life that God has given us, then please come! We meet at 9:30 am in the Conference Room!

WEDNESDAY WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY – 9:30 am – Rooms 6 & 8
Wednesday Women’s Bible Study is currently studying “Seamless” by Angie Smith.
In 7 sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying
them together into the greater story of Scripture. Whether you’ve grown up hearing
Bible stories or you’re exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible
can be overwhelming.
Experience the Bible as a whole as you gain clarity and confidence in your
understanding of Scripture. Discover a biblical context that reshapes and brings to life stories from the Old and New Testaments.
Each week is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies.
