Women's Bible Study

Brave: Honest Questions Women Ask - by Angela Thomas

We all have insecurities, flaws, and struggles that we are afraid to address. But if we can be brave enough to raise the questions, God will answer us. We will have weekly homework and a DVD on the following topics: I am worn out. I am suffering a thorn. I am undisciplined. I am trembling inside. I am invisible. I am broken. Join us as we dig into scripture for God?s truth on these topics.
This seven-week study will begin on Wednesday, October 7, and conclude on Wednesday, November 18. Books will be handed out at the first class. We meet from 9-11 a.m. in room 201-A. The cost of the study guide is $13. Childcare is provided. Please contact Juanita Cowles at 865-712-3262 or by email at Juanita.cowles@att.net for information and to sign up.
