Tuesday Groups   

Tuesday Women's Bible Study

The Tuesday Women's Bible Study will be starting a 15-week study of Paul's teachings beginning on January 11, and they would love for you to join them! They will be using the book The Parables of Paul by J. Ellsworth Kalas which reminds us that for over 2,000 years the church has looked to the apostle Paul and his letters in order to understand the Christian life. Through reading this book and sharing in weekly discussions, we will learn how Paul used metaphors to share Jesus' message with others so that we may live our faith more fully. We meet on Tuesdays from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. in Room G111.
Contact for more information or to order your book!
