Ladies Tuesday Morning Bible Study:

  • 9:30-11:00 am
  • September through May


Join us as we begin the study on the book of Revelation "Worthy is the Lamb."

Meet in the lower level of the church.

In-depth Summer 2017 (6:30-8 pm) 

Join us for our summer Women's In-Depth Bible Study, Priscilla Shirer "The Armour of God."

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you - your emotions, your mind, your family, your future. But the enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion.

This Bible study will bring that war to light and challenge you to suit up, stand firm, and secure victory in your life. Become a woman who is armed with the power of God's Word and His promises!

If you have questions, please contact Eugenia at 651-271-1850 or email her at eugenia.steffens@hcmed.org.

This study will meet on the following Monday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm in the lower level of the church.
