bethmooreJoin our Women’s Bible Study of 1 & 2 Thessolonians beginning Tuesday, Sept. 23

Children of the Day: 1 & 2 Thessolonians

 “You are all children of the light and children of the day.” IThess. 5:5

  • Tuesday Evenings: Sept. 23 – Nov. 18 ,  7- 9 p.m.            
  •  *Friday mornings: Sept. 26 – Nov. 21,  9:30 – 11:30 a.m.

The New Testament believers carried the Spirit of God as they walked the shores of Thessolonica,  just as we carry that light today. In this 9 Session Bible study, you, too, will walk the shores of Thessolonica along with Beth Moore as we study 1 & 2 Thessolonians verse by verse.  Children of the Day highlights the relationships shared by those who comprise the church. As you travel along in Scripture, you will gain assurance that your circumstances and conditions are not coincidental. God’s timing is impeccable! You are never without His light. . . you are exactly where Christ wants you to be.
