Women’s bible study circles will be using a new bible study series January through May – on the Gospel of John. This study is printed in the churchwide women’s magazine GATHER. The study looks at unexpected encounters with Jesus.

The January study, “Come and See: Seeking and Finding Faith” using three scriptures:

John 1:19 – 51  The Calling of the Disciples

John 2:1 – 12    Wedding at Cana 

John 2:13 – 25  The Temple Incident

If you are not participating in a circle, consider beginning the New Year 2019 by going to a circle bible study for fellowship and enriching your faith life.  Call a hostess for further information.
