Ladies Thursday Morning Bible Study, 10:00—11:30 a.m., in Grace Parish Hall
All women of St. David’s are invited to join the next Thursday Morning Ladies’ Bible Study beginning Thurs. Sept 6, 2018 in Grace Parish Hall from 10:00–11:30 a.m. We will discover the rich truths in 1 & 2 Corinthians.

The church at Corinth was weak. Surrounded by idolatry and immorality, they struggled with their Christian faith and lifestyle. How much of their former culture were these ex-pagans to forsake? They sent a list of questions to Paul. He wrote them a letter—1 Corinthians—to instruct them how to grow in their faith, how to handle conflict, and how to solve various church problems. Later, Paul wrote another letter—an emotional 2 Corinthians—which taught them how to deal with the false teachers who were challenging Paul’s ministry and authority as an apostle. Paul dearly loved the Corinthian believers!

Come and study how this passionate missionary’s words to his beloved congregation still speak to Christians today! Join us! We love new faces! Call Kim Freeman for details. (770) 442-3128.

Third Tuesday Women’s Evening Bible Study
Do you want to learn more about the Bible while having fun and getting to know other interesting women? Join us every third Tuesday evening as we delve into Biblical book of Ruth. Ruth’s journey comes alive in Kelly Minter’s book Ruth: Loss, Love & Legacy. If you’ve ever been devastated by loss, struggled as a stranger, longed to be loved, or wept along the way, you’ll find a place with Ruth.

Second Tuesday Women’s Bible Study
The 2nd Tuesday Women’s Bible study is a monthly study using the Fruits of the Spirit series. It provides an evening of theme based study and Christian women’s fellowship. The group does reading in advance each month and prepares for the class by answering brief questions in the workbook. We rotate leaders each month so everyone has the opportunity to lead the study. The study is currently full at 20 participants, but please checks back with us again!
