Our Women's Equip Ministry and Sonshiner's Women's Bible Study are joining together to offer the same study on Thursday and Sunday mornings. That way, if you cannot join one, you can take part in the other! In this 6-session Bible study called Entrusted, Beth Moore will encourage us to guard what God has entrusted to us while furthering His kingdom by sharing Christ with others and pour into future generations. As we journey this path of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness. Join us in this journey.
Thursdays: 10am; September 14 - November 2
Sundays: 9am; September 17 - October 22
$20 per person. Please sign-up with Linda Mather in the foyer on Sunday Mornings or through the link below.
