Sunday, 9:50 to 10:40 a.m. (between services)

In the Conference Room—
Women’s Bible Study during Lent.
Lent “Blessed Is She – Living Lent with
Mary” by Tim Perry. Open to all. Bring a friend, and your Bible.
From the book cover…“The book primarily focuses from the Gospel
of Luke. It reveals a Lenten Mary who teaches the meaning of
discipleship. The result is a complex, inviting, strong character – a
disciple to be emulated by all Christians, especially during this holy
season. Follow Mary’s life during each week of Lent, and ponder
the questions that this thought-provoking study stirs within you.”
In the Music Room—
Prayer Shawl Ministry. Busy hands keep time with busy hearts as we
pray and make shawls for people we’re praying for. No experience
