#1) Women’s Discipleship Opportunities
Thursday Mornings – New/revised start date for women’s bible study is Thursday, January 11.
GRACE – A Bible Study on Ephesians for Women written by Keri Folmar. This 11-week study delves into the book of Ephesians where Paul lays a rock-solid foundation for a believers true identity in Christ. Together we will learn who and what we are in Christ, as well as praise God for what He planned in eternity past and desires to reveal to us now. We will discover how believers should embrace God’s grace in faith, live in light of what Christ has accomplished for us, and strive to be strong in the Lord by putting on his armor. Cost is $5.

Due to severe peanut allergies in our congregation, we can absolutely have NO peanut products in our building. This applies to any day of the week and for any activity you may be attending in our building.
We have attendees with fragrance allergies. We have designated the first six rows of the left section of our sanctuary (as you look at the stage) for them. If you wear fragrances, we would appreciate you avoiding that area.
