"One Thousand Gifts” Ladies' Bible Study Begins September 7th
The ladies' Thursday morning Bible Study will begin the Fall with One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Ann muses, "How do you break the bondage of fear that has white-knuckle control of your life and instead embrace the every day blessings that immerse you in Christ fullness? How can you live life with a heart overflowing with delight?" Reading the book is desirable before the class begins.
There are five sessions in the study beginning September 7th. We will meet at 10:00 a.m. in rooms F-146/147, located on the 1st floor of the Family Life Center. Please contact Fran Hearn McGee by e-mail at dr_fran@BellSouth.net or call 678-773-5107 to reserve a study guide, which costs $13.
