Wednesday PM Bible Study with Pastor Dawes resumes January 11. “Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that his people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word.  The book of Ephesians is a survival manual – it equips
believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul, the Apostle, writes to encourage believers to live well.” Join us as we explore this life changing book through discussion, video and teaching.

Ladies Grief Group will be starting a new study on Wednesday evenings, starting January 18 at 6 PM. They will be studying “The Faces of Grief”,  “Comfort through sorrow – peace from God.

There is a sign up table with books in the Foyer today.
