First Hour Prayer
Mondays, 8-8:50AM

Be a part of a growing and committed circle that has found a powerful way to begin the week by joining together in prayer for our church, community, nation and world.

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.      1 Timothy 2:1-4

Women’s Bible Study
Thursdays, 10AM

The Thursday morning Women’s Bible study is a great place to explore the Bible, ask questions, get answers and grow in faith. This group is filled with women of all ages, various backgrounds and different degrees of Biblical knowledge. There is a lot of interaction and discussion that leads to deeper levels of learning, spiritual growth and fresh perspectives. The women in this group have developed strong friendships and are now a solid support system for one another. The group routinely prays for one another and shares each other’s cares and concerns. It is always open and welcoming to new members.

If you have questions, contact Deb Ahle or email for more information and/or the Zoom link.

Beginning Thursday, September 22nd, the Women’s Bible Study Group will be studying the book of Jonah. Using Priscilla Shirer’s workbook Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted as our guide, we will learn that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams.

Each woman has the right to participate at the level at which they are comfortable, without any pressure to share. This will be a safe haven for all to share their views without any judgement. Whatever is shared will remain confidential within the group. Everyone will be encouraged to practice supportive listening – there will be no cross talk, interrupting or advice giving. As we share we will find we will grow closer to God and one another.
