New Women's Bible Study Beginning January 16th

Please join us as we begin a new study entitled: Enough for Now: Unpacking God's Sufficiency beginning Thursday, January 16th at 8:30 AM in the Trinity Room.

The concept of "having enough" is one that is not often experienced. If I only had more money . . . more success . . . more time . . . then I would be fulfilled. Yet even when more is attained, it rarely satisfies. It is not "enough."

An eight-lesson women's Bible study, Enough for Now explores the idea of "enough" through the study of Scripture - specifically the parable of the rich fool, personal stories, and practical exercises. Over the course of the lessons, women will discover how to escape the insatiable quest for more by finding their "enough" in God.

We will continue to meet in the Trinity room each Thursday morning beginning at 8:30. Children are welcome to attend! Contact Karen 262-422-7725 with question or for more information.
