  • Discovering god's vision for your life

    This Bible study will meet for four weeks on Wednesdays, 5:30-8:00 pm beginning September 13 in the Library. “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many forms in one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts.” Romans 12:4-6 (NIV). Knowing and understanding your spiritual gift(s) will help you know how you can serve God the best. It will also help you be the very special person God made you to be.

    You may register for this class online at the church’s website, or by calling the church office.
