A Word of Hope Bible Study

"Do not let your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me."

This year, the Women's Inductive Bible Study will explore this gospel, which Scottish theologian William Barclay once described as "overflowing with riches." This group meets at 10 a.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, with the new study set to begin on October 24. Newcomers are most welcome at any time. For more information, contact Sharon Bailey at (404) 248-9463 or
