FAITHFUL SISTERHOOD BIBLE STUDY GROUP
So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, 
says beloved humor writer Liz Curtis Higgs, and by God's grace, choose a better path than the Bad Girls in the Bible. In Bad Girls of the Bible, Higgs offers a unique and clear-sighted approach to understanding those other women in Scripture, combining a contemporary retelling of their stories with a solid, verse-by-verse study of their mistakes and what lessons women today can learn from them. With her trademark humor and encouragement, Liz Curtis Higgs teaches us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
 
The Faithful Sisterhood Bible Study Group will be offering Bad Girls of the Bible as their next study on September 12th. This study group meets on Tuesday nights, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, in room F105. This study will end on December 12th. 

To sign up contact facilitator Michele Kent michelebkent@knology.net   
or (850)238-5288. Deadline date to sign up is August 18th.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT 
BIBLE STUDY
Did you ever have questions about the Bible or things you just never understood. Well here's your chance to get those questions answered. The Wednesday Evening Bible Study will start a series called " That's A Great Question". You bring the question and we will discuss it. We already have 3 questions. What does the Bible say about the Trinity, what are angels and do we really have a guardian angel and what does the Bible say about the Evil One. Your question could be next. The group meets in the Conference Room from 5:30-7:00pm on Wednesdays
SPIRIT BIBLE STUDY
The Spirit Bible Study Class meets on Sundays at 9:40am. We would love to have you join us as we study our way through the Bible.
