Women’s Bible Study will be starting a study by Priscilla Shirer called ‘The Armor of God’.  This is a 7-week video series that coincides with a 6-week study book.  We are offering both an in-person and virtual option!  Nakisha will be leading a Zoom meeting every other Sunday night for 90 minutes, where you will watch the videos and discuss the lesson.  Kristin will be leading a group during the Sunday school hour.  This group will watch the video one week and discuss the lesson the next week.  Our first meetings will be Sunday, January 17, to watch the first video, with the lesson done beforehand.  Additionally, we will use our North Street Bible Study Facebook group as well as a group e-mail to stay connected between our meeting times.  Please sign-up at the information kiosk indicating which option you prefer and if you need a study book.  The books will be around $16.00.  If you need help covering the cost of the book, please let Kristin or Nakisha know.


Children’s Worship will resume during the Evening Worship Service on Sunday, January 17.
