  • Topic:Monday Night Women's Study Small Group
  • Location:Riva/Edgewater
  • Leader(s):Leigh Ann Gallion
  • Days/Meeting: Monday @ 07:00 am
  • Status:Open
  • We will be using Patricia Shirer's book "Resolution for Women" to inspire the woman you see in the mirror to trust God's perfect plan for her life, resolving to become “purposefully feminine, surprisingly satisfied, and faithfully His.” Shirer explains how today's women can and should live out their own resolution. It is "a defining banner that hangs over your life, written in the ink of your own choices." A woman's banner should be an accurate reflection of who she desires to be-someone completely Christ-centered who blesses and changes things in her world for the better. Written in partnership with the movie Courageous. Women of all ages and walks of life are welcome to join us on Monday nights as we gather for bible study, fellowship, and prayer!
