“Encouraging One Another!” ~ New Small Group
Starts September 23
This is a 6-week study that will take place on Wednesdays, at 7 pm, in the church library. It is open to anyone who wants to search the Bible for all the ways God wants us to know he didn’t leave us to face life alone. We’ll think, share, smile, and fellowship as we search the scriptures for all of God’s encouraging “love notes” to us. Plan to join us and bring along a friend or two!
