Three Women’s Bible Studies:

    • Sunday nights at 6:00 p.m. at the church in the College/Career Classroom  led by Susan Schmidt.  The group is studying the book, Choose Joy, by Kay Warren.  The author shares the path to experiencing soul-satisfying joy no matter what you’re going through.  Joy is deeper than happiness, lasts longer than excitement, and is more stisfying than pleasure and thrills.
    • Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m. at the church. We will take a look at Me, Myself & Lies by Jennifer Rothschilds.  This six-week DVD driven Bible study will encourage you to clean out the junk in your thoughts and replace these hidden negative thoughts and failures with positive truths from God’s word. Rather than struggling with self-esteem, body image, stress and other unhealthy thoughts and emotions learn to replace the lies you may have been telling yourself with the truth from God’s word.  This study will begin on Wed, 1/21 at 7 pm in room 211 with an introduction to the study and will be followed up by six weekly sessions.  There will be daily work each week.  The cost will be $15.
    • Thursday mornings at 9:15 a.m. at Tami Burchett’s home.  This women’s Bible study is studying Jonah with Priscilla Shirer.  Come discover that what you see as an interruption may truly be God’s divine invitation to a life so much bigger than you can imagine.  We will be starting our six week study on Thursday, January 29th at 9:15 am.  We will meet at the Burchett’s house.  The cost of the workbook for this study is $12.

The Prayer Quilt Ministry meets the first Saturday of each from from 9 a.m. – noon in the church foyer. Contact Fran Spencer for more information or if you know of anyone in the church who is having surgery and would appreciate a quilt.
