Sunday's message:
"My Shepherd"
Summer Joybreak 9:30 AM Wednesdays
All women are invited to join us each Wednesday morning from 9:30-10:45 am for a time of fellowship and diving into God's Word. This summer study is offered in person only. 
We meet in the Great Room.
Our 5-week study is a DVD-based study called "Jesus and Women" by Kristi McLelland.
We will examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply, but to fuel our worship of Him today. This study is great for a busy summer schedule. Drop-in when you can. No study book needed, just bring your Bibles.
