2023 Winter Faith & Friendship

Faith & Friendship is a women’s connect group where We exist to connect women to Jesus Christ through developing friendships, prayer, biblical teaching as well as loving and supporting each other.

Ladies, please come join us for our winter session.  We will be offering a video series by Kelly Minter called Finding God Faithful

There have probably been times in your life when you have wondered if God is there, if He cares and if He remembers you.  There are characters in the Old Testament that felt the same way.   In this study we look at passages in Genesis where we are constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness.   Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

We also have two Tuesday studies:

The first meets via ZOOM at 10:00 am on Tuesdays.  They will be having a short study on Women of the Bible in early January.   The Finding God Faithful study will begin on January 24th

The second group meets on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 pm in the Coffee Café at the Fairview Heights campus.  Their study focuses on Women of the Bible.

Although books are available for both study, purchase is not necessary.
