NEW STUDY: A Biblical Understanding of Women   What does the Bible say about women, their place in society, and their ability to lead?

Men, women, and youth are welcome! The study will be held on Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 p.m., on Nov. 7 & Nov. 21 (in Spirit Hall) **If you have questions or are interested, please contact Pastor Alice (alicewolfe@love-first.org or 740-653-3330).
