Discerning the Voice of God

in Adult Ministries, Ladies Activity, Ladies Bible Study

Ladies Bible Study

We are currently in a Ladies Bible Study by Priscilla Shirer that is entitled “Discerning the Voice of God”.  Would the God Who has loved us and given Himself for us, then refuse to speak to us?  If He does speak, how do we discern when He is speaking, and what He is telling us?  This study helps to clarify those questions and many others.

This study, facilitated by Ellen Brady, meets on Tuesday morning from 9-11 a.m.; and again on Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m.  If you have questions about this study please feel free to call our church office at (217) 378-5278.
