Women's Bible Study, Thurs. Feb. 7


All women are invited to our Bible study on the topic of “Waiting with Patience, Hope & Trust”!

We wait. In traffic, at the doctor’s office, for prayers to be heard. Waiting can be agony, especially in our “instant” culture. But what if the waiting rooms of life are God’s best classrooms?

Join us as we learn to surrender our worries to God and handle the waiting in our lives!

Details: We meet at the church starting @7 pm on February 7th & 21st.

Men's Bible Study, Sat. Feb. 9

MEN’S BIBLE STUDY… will meet Saturday, February 9th at 7:00 am. The topic is “The Lost Books” by Rev. Gregory Seltz. The study will look at why some ancient writings failed to make the cut for inclusion in the Bible, why other texts most definitely met the standard, and why others, including those “gospels” found in the last century, came up short. 

The leaders of the Bible study will be Eric Sadlo and Gary Christensen.  We will also meet on Feb. 23rd, and March 9th. Refreshments will be available. No reading preparation is needed. This study is open to all male members of the congregation. We would also welcome anyone you may know that would like to join us.
