Ladies: Our summer Bible Study begins Wednesday night, June 1.  We will be studying “Breathe” by Priscilla Shirer who will lead us in
examining margins and boundaries that God enables us to put around things we enjoy so that we will never become slaves again to activities and busyness. These things swallow up our rest and peace.  Let’s focus on how we can breathe and build margins into our lives for God.  Please join us for this encouraging 5 week study during the month of June to build a closer relationship with God and with other like-minded women. See you then!!!   (It’s Summer ~ plug in when you can; don’t worry if you have to miss a few sessions).
