Women’s Bible Study: On September 19, we will be starting our fall study, “Elijah” by Priscilla Shirer.  “Every fervent believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm.  Join Priscilla through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine.  And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.”  If you would like to join, please sign up at the information center, or let Nakisha or Kristin know.  We will be meeting from 11:00-11:45 each Sunday, alternating video and study weeks, ending tentatively on December 19.  Cost of the study book is $10.00.  Please sign up by Sunday, August 29.
