As you learn the significance of each ancient word, you’ll be awestruck by the Lord’s magnificence and your heart compelled to worship and praise Him. Each session is stand-alone to accommodate busy schedules. For more information, please stop by the Ladies Bibles Study table in the lobby. For childcare, contact Heather Hess. We look forward to seeing you there!
