The women's evening Bible study will continue to read 1 Samuel using Hope Blanton and Christine Gordon's guide titled 1 Samuel. We will meet every other Tuesday evening from 7-8:30 in the Northwest Hills neighborhood, starting January 8th and ending April 30. Childcare is not provided. Attendance in the fall is not mandatory for attendance in the spring. We would love to have you join us!

Women's Mentorship Discussion: Please mark your calendars for Sunday, February 17th, 9-10:15am. Several women joined us for the mentor training in the fall with Sandy Snoke. Coming in February, we will have a follow-up discussion and meeting about the scriptural call to mentorship. If you were not able to attend the training in the fall, please feel free to join us anyway for the conversation. This will be a time for you to connect with one another about your experience with mentorship, both as a mentor and as a mentee. We will meet at Lamar Middle School before the worship service.
