Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study. The Women’s Bible Study/Discipleship Group meets each Wednesday morning in the 9.23 Community Center. We gather at 9:15 am for coffee, followed by teaching and discussion from 9:30 - 1 pm and continue our study of King Solomon and following him, the kings of Judah. Emphasis is placed on self-examination and the application of Scripture, that we may continually mature as fruitful disciples of Christ in both word and deed. Please come prepared with a Bible and notepad for any thoughts you might wish to record. Come and join us.
