New Ladies’ Bible Studies
Tuesday Ladies’ Bible Study – starting September 12th at 9:15, meets every other week at King of Grace
This is a Bible Study that will discuss women of the Bible. There are women all throughout scripture who teach us about God’s holiness and power and even about his sense of humor. In Wicked Women of the Bible by Ann Spangler tells the stories of twenty wicked and wicked good women in greater detail. The stories of these women of the Bible reveal a God who is not above it all but who stoops down to meet us where we are in order to extend his love and mercy.

Saturday Ladies’ Bible Study – starting September 9th at 9:30, 2nd and 4th Saturday at 16 Alpine Drive, Haverhill
Join us as we study what the Bible teaches about womanhood. We will use the Good Book Guide to Biblical womanhood, a ten week study that digs into scripture. We will meet each 2nd and 4th Saturday from 9-10:30 at Peggy Buckley’s home. All ladies, including mom’s and daughters welcome!
Sign ups for all studies are in the Judson Room.
