Monday Morning Ladies Bible Study - New Series

Begins Monday, November 13, 10am, LH 112/113

Do you have trouble thinking of words to say to God when you pray? Do you reach the end of a day only to realize you haven’t prayed at all? You’re not alone. Prayer is the way we relate to God, but sometimes it’s a struggle.

Join the Ladies Monday Morning Bible Study beginning November 13 as we delve into the word, looking at six prayers throughout scripture and what they can teach us about our own prayer life.
