Women’s Bible Study

Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of The Spirit by Beth Moore
Wednesday evenings beginning January 20
6:30 – 8:30 pm, Lower Auditorium, Rm. 13
Leader: Kathy Campbell

Through this study we will look at the supernatural aspects of the fruit and that you cannot grow, learn, or produce the fruit on your own. We will be challenged to develop the fruit by maintaining an intimate relationship with the Sprit of God. Books are available at Life Way for $15. Contact Kathy Long for information at jandklong@windstream.net or 296-9456.

Encounter The Spirit by Carolyn Moore
Thursday mornings beginning January 21
9:15 – 11:30 am, Dining Room
Facilitator: Pam Pepper

The Holy Spirit is our inheritance as followers of Jesus…but to access the power and fullness of this gift, however, is a choice. What if you could tap into that power? Wouldn’t you benefit from a deeper, more intimate connection with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Ladies, register today in the atrium at the red GIFT box for an 8 week study facilitated by Pam Pepper. Babysitting will be provided. Contact Pam Pepper at kypeppers@gmail.com or 223-7495.
