Women’s Bible Study

Thursday mornings from 9-11 AM starting January 4, 2024. We will study Stewarding the Faith: An Inductive Study of the book of 1 Timothy by Sophron Studies. The apostle Paul instructed Timothy to steward the faith and guard the good deposit for the glory of God. Paul instructs the church, the household of God, how to behave to display truth. He also warns of false teaching, which is applicable today. Study to see the richness of encouragement, warnings, and instructions that apply to all Christians. The cost is $11. Childcare is provided through age 5 (connect with Mary Lynne if you have older kids). Please register online by 12/17/23!
