To Live Is Christ by Beth Moore is an in-depth study of the life and ministry of Paul. Exploring the life of Paul will, among other things: deepen our understanding of God’s grace; demonstrate God’s ability to use anyone who is willing to serve Him; demonstrate the impact one surrendered life can have; encourage us to remain strong and steadfast during times of suffering; and most of all, increase our passion to know Christ!
This 11-session Women’s Bible Study will begin on Thursday, January 9, 2020, 1:00pm-2:30pm in the Fellowship Hall. The study guide costs approximately $16.00. Please contact the church office to order your guide, or contact Susan after December 25. Her contact information is or 662- 312-6052.
