Less than a month to go before Women’s Bible Study kicks off the fall semester! Our community meets each Thursday morning from 9:30-11:30 a.m. for a time of fellowship, worship, teaching, small group discussion and prayer. The fall semester begins on Thursday, September 15 and ends with a delicious brunch on December 1. The curriculum, Open Your Bible by Amanda B. Williams and Raechel Myers, is a Scripture study using Old and New Testament passages. It offers a refreshing approach to study and small group discussion as we interact with Scripture. After a short break, we will continue our study by examining the Gospel of John in the spring semester. The cost for the semester is $20, collected at our first meeting. Childcare is provided.

Thursdays in August (4, 11, 18, & 25)
Join us in the Blacknall nursery from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Karen Strubel, Ph.D., will join us for conversations about child development and parenting. Karen is a clinical psychologist whose specialties include play therapy, parent coaching, attachment formation and repair. She holds an M.A. in theology and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Fuller Theological Seminary. The Blacknall Library will be open these mornings, so drop by and check out a book or two for the Mission Builders summer reading program. We hope many will join us for these fun playgroup mornings!
