    Women's Ministry Summer Bible Study
    Redeemed
    July 11—August 15
    Front Porch, 9:30—11:30 a.m.

     

    Redeemed by Angela Thomas-Pharr

    If your life is like most, you might be thinking, “I just can’t do this study right now.” But it’s time to take an honest inventory of our lives and our hearts.

    Are there places where your life needs to be changed by God’s power? Will you trust the One who loves you for the grace to be changed? God left heaven to save you, heal you, and redeem you. He knows your struggles, vulnerabilities, and pain. He knows you cannot change yourself.

    In this Bible study, Angela Thomas-Pharr explores the practical side of redemption and what it means to experience the grace to live every day better than before.

    Join us as we learn more.
