“Discerning the Voice of God” by Priscilla Shirer
Mon. evenings, Sept 18 – Oct 30, 6:00 – 8:00 pm, Rm 201
Learn to recognize God’s character, language, and tone of voice as you spend time in His Word and understand the role of the Holy Spirit. This is a 7-session revised and expanded edition of an earlier study. Don’t miss this life changing study!
The mystery is over! October is Sunday School High Attendance Month. Each Sunday a different group will be emphasized. Remember: There’s a place for everyone, opportunities for friendships and people to back you up, the chance to gain valuable knowledge for your life, AND God eagerly awaits you there.
