Wednesday Night Bible Studies — begins Sept. 9th

- The Wednesday Night Ladies Group, which meets in the Conference Room, will study “The Storm Inside.” In Sheila Walsh’s book, The Storm Inside, she lets women know that they can grow in the midst of their everyday storms, no matter how they may feel. Constantly teetering between daily chaos and life-changing crisis, women often feel storms brewing, are in the middle of a storm, or are facing the aftermath of a storm. Through Scripture and the sharing of personal stories, Sheila shows how heartbreak can become strength, shame lead to love, restoration undo rage, and courage overcome insignificance.
