Women’s Circles Bible Studies — The study for April is from the Gospel of John, “Seeing the Risen Christ – coming to faith.” In this fourth and last bible study of the series, Meetings with Jesus, we will study John 20 and John 21 and meet the Risen Christ through his appearances with Mary Magdalene, Thomas, and Peter, the Beloved Disciple. All women are welcome to attend one of the women’s bible study circles.
