Fall Bible Study Classes
Women in the Old Testament
While the men of the Old Testament often receive the most attention, the women of the Old Testament become all the more worthy of our interest because we have to dig deeper to recover their special contribution to the annals of faith. Their stories are all the more remarkable in that they arise from historical eras that crimped their options in influencing or changing the flow of history. The women of this study can be bold and decisive, also meek and faithful, but they are always compelled to act in ways that bring about change. God’s saving deeds often came through the mind and will of amazing women using limited resources.
Sunday eve’s, September 22nd through November 24th. Instructor: Jeanne Smith

Experience faith through Christ’s greatest teacher and missionary.

Yes, the ordinary cups you use each day can become sacred vessels that connect you with life and bring you into closer union with the Divine.
