New Women's Bible Study

Sunday,
April 8th
4:00 PM
Laura Daniel will begin a new women’s Bible study called “Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath” by Priscilla Shirer. It is a 5-week study that will be held in the Parlor. Books are $10.
     One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
Donations for Loaves & Fishes

We have a dedicated box in the hallway on the main floor for non-perishable food items. These items are taken to Loaves & Fishes and distributed to local people who need assistance with groceries to feed themselves and their families. The box is always open to receive your donations. Monetary donations may also be made through the church office.
