Women’s Bible Studies

Wednesday Women’s Bible Study – Church House Parlor at 9:30 am

Join us in this new year as we begin a study on Ruth on Wednesday, January 15. She was a woman of great faith and courage and her story is one of moving from tragedy and famine to triumph and belonging. As we study her story we will learn more about our own life of faith and discipleship. Come when you can and bring a friend.

Please contact Maureen Paterson if you have any questions.
