New Women’s class starts November 4

Do you feel that the ability to hear God’s voice is for other people and not for you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times?
Not at all! The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand.

We will be starting a new Ladies’ Sunday School class on November 4 entitled “The Voice of God:  How to Recognize When God is Speaking” by Priscilla Shirer.  There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer.
