Women's Discipleship Group - Irene Mahoney - Saturdays, 10am - Noon at Panera Bread

What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? It means first of all that we want to learn from him — and we will, as we study God’s word, the Bible, and share our lives with each other. As Christ's disciples we should want to make the Bible part of your life every day. The Psalmist said, “The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130).


Women's "Overview of Old Testament History" - Kathy Marchmont-Robinson - Women: Are you not sure who came first Abraham, David or Jeremiah? Whether you need a refresher or this is new to you, if you would like an overview of Old Testament history, this group will simplify it for you.

  • Spring session runs for about 4-6 weeks after Easter and before summer break.
  • Fall session runs from about September till mid November.
