#2) Women’s Discipleship Opportunities
Thursday Morning – (Starting January 4, 9-11 a.m.)
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.
Childcare will be provided up through age 5. Please sign up on the sheet in the foyer, by calling the church office or by emailing Mary Lynne Johnson. If registering children please indicate the names and ages of all children you plan to enroll in the nursery or childcare program. The deadline for registration is December 22.

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.
