Our four Women’s Circles invite all women to attend the May Bible Studies. May’s lesson is an intergenerational topic with the theme “All Are Welcome” from Hebrews 13:1 – 2.  Showing hospitality and compassion are gifts learned from Jesus. How do we build family ties? Do you show hospitality to strangers who are poor, lonely and struggling?  What challenges does Prince of Peace have to become more welcoming?  All women are invited to join in one of the four bible study groups.

1Let mutual love continue. 2Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.        –Hebrews 13:1-2
