Experiencing God’s Peace – Women’s Bible Group

Join our newest small community!  This bible study focuses on the book of Philippians.  Elizabeth George helps you understand how to sense God’s perfect peace in every circumstance in your life and is perfect for all ages. Her teaching will help you discover how to:

  • Respond to the needs of others
  • Mature in Christ
  • Overcome anxiety.

The “heart response” sections throughout the study help you grasp the Apostle Paul’s teachings and focus on God’s loving provisions.

This bible study makes a great resource for women’s small groups, Sunday School, and personal reflection.

Start the year with the posture of peace. This study on the book of Philippians will explore the overwhelming peace that surpasses our understanding…even in the midst of turmoil.   

When: Thursdays, 6:00-7:30 pm starting January 9th – February 20th.

Where: Chapel

Cost: $10 book fee/assistance available
