Women's Ministries: Girlfriend to Girlfriend

Girlfriend to Girlfriend is a book study led by Debbie Daniels and a great place to connect with other women. This fall's topic is Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You by John Ortberg. The health of your soul is the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith. Come rediscover your soul and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. Books will be available the first day of class. There is a $20 fee for materials. Scholarships are available. Come rediscover your soul!

6:30 pm in Gilmore Hall

Men's Ministries: Seven Questions
