Last Summer Joybreak This Wednesday 

All women are invited to join us Wednesday morning, August 7  from 9:30 to 11 am  for a time of fellowship and diving into God's Word. 
Our study this summer is called 
Resilient Faith: 1 Peter  by Mary Jo Sharp. 

We all face (or will face) difficult times when we need to stand firm in our Christ-centered faith. The Book of 1 Peter offers the needed understanding of what a resilient faith looks like and how we can stand strong regardless of what comes. 
Join us for some great discussion! Coffee and light refreshments will be served. No study book needed, just bring your Bible. 
See you there!
