NEW STUDY: A Biblical Understanding of Women   What does the Bible say about women, their place in society, and their ability to lead? Throughout the ages, many have debated what the Bible says about these topics. Pastor Alice will lead a 4-week study that digs into the Old and New Testaments to help us better understand what God says about women and their role in society and God’s kingdom. 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).

Should you receive an email or text or are ever in doubt, please feel free to call the church at 740-653-3330, and we will take the appropriate action. Thank you!
