Women's Small Group Study

Beginning Thursday, Sept. 14 from 9:00 - 10:00 AM


All ladies are invited to attend this 6 week study that will meet in the church library.

 In this video-based study, Lysa TerKeurst admits that she has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. What do we do with these raw emotions? Filmed in Florence, Italy, and filled with personal examples and Biblical teaching, Lysa shows how to process our emotions and resolve conflicts in ways that lead to a much more peaceful life.

 Please contact the church office to sign up no later than September 6.  Books: $10


Sisters In Service - will meet on Monday, October 9 at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall for a light meal and meeting.  ALL ladies are welcome.

ALL ladies are invited to meet at The Hare & Hound in Landrum for a time of good food, laughter and fellowship.  Please sign up ASAP on the sheet on the window outside the church office.


Thank you for the prayer shawl that was given to me.  It has been comforting and is beautiful.  Rev. Tom Wilkes
