LADIES BIBLE STUDY: Daniel (by Beth Moore) Ladies, join us in the fellowship hall for a study in faith-building and learn how to live with integrity in today’s self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials. This class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45am. For more info, see Pam Lagoc.

YOUNG COUPLES BIBLE STUDY at 9:45am on Sundays. Join us up in The Loft for fellowship and growth in our faith walks together as we study Solomon’s Song of Songs. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah and Shawn White: whitesga@gmail.com
