2017 Women’s Summer Bible Study — Entrusted: A Study of 2 Timothy by Beth Moore
Contiinues Wednesday, June 28 at 7 p.m. or Thursday, June 29 at 9:30 a.m.We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live a life of faithfulness.
This 6-week, interactive study features personal, daily assignments and weekly group sessions with video. The cost for class materials is $20.00.

If you feel you need privacy, just ask the Stephen Minister to step out of the sanctuary or chapel area to share your prayer concern or need. Know, too, that whatever you share, whatever you pray about is confidential.
