Women’s Bible Study (In-Person)- The King’s Daughters will begin Elijah: Faith and Fire by Priscilla Shirer on Wednesday, September 1 at 9:30 a.m. in the fellowship hall. One description of the study says, “Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.” Women of all ages are invited to participate in this study on each Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 10:45 beginning September 1 and ending November 17. Pre-registration is required. To register or if you have any questions, please contact Sherry Upton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919) 801-4388. Contact: Deborah Moye – email@example.com
