Current Focus: New study begins March 22nd. "Always a Guest," from beloved writer and renowned preacher Barbara Brown Taylor who assembles a new collection of stories and sermons of faith, grace, and hope. Taylor, author of the best-selling books Holy Envy and An Altar in the World, among others, finds that when you are the invited guest speaking of faith to people you do not know, one must seek common ground: exploring the central human experience. Full of Taylor’s astute observations on the Spirit and the state of the world along with her gentle wit, this collection will inspire Taylor’s readers and preachers alike as she explores faith in all its beauty and complexity. Books will be placed at the back door of the church by March 15th and you may leave a check for $20 made out to Elizabeth Pope for the costs of the book.
Purpose: This group of women will energize and equip you for Bible study aimed at transforming both the heart and mind. "We focus on understanding God's word and applying it to our actions."
