Women in Scripture – The Lost Voices: The prophets cry out to sinners to repent; the kings cry out encouragement to warriors; the apostles cry out salvation through Jesus. We hear voices of Isaiah, Jeremiah, David, and Matthew loudly as we read scripture. But what about the women – Rebecca, Rachel, Priscilla, Esther? Who are they? What are they telling us? Almost 200 women are named in Scripture. More than 500 inhabit its pages. Each of these women have a story to share. Join us as we look at and learn from the strong and the weak, the abused and the powerful women who are part of scripture and our history. This new series, presented by Ivy Cavegn, will be on four consecutive Tuesdays, beginning March 26 either at 9:00 am or 6:30 pm. Contact Gizzy Miko with questions.
SMALL GROUPS—Enrich your spiritual life through joining a Small Group - A wonderful way to share your faith journey is to participate in a faith sharing group and/or a Book Club. If you are interested in joining or starting a small group, contact Gizzy Miko. Here are some websites with information for Small Group types and content: www.Renewinttl.org and www.emmausjourney.org.
