A Devoted Heart
It is with great delight in my heart and spirit to announce that “A Devoted Heart” Bible Study will be starting up again on Sept. 20th!
How I have missed our time together in God’s precious Word, studying and searching for how the Lord wants to speak His love, guidance and encouragement into our everyday lives through scripture.
I would like to honor and thank Fr. John for the blessing and opportunity to continue this ministry the Lord laid on my heart.
It has truly been my privilege to have you come along side me and listen to me share my passion of the LOVE of God the Father and Jesus Christ for all of us.
Jesus said to him, “…He who has seen Me has seen the Father…” John 14:9
Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus, the nature of God in action.
Christian and I would love to welcome and invite you back to study God’s Word in action with us.
We will meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month at 12:30-1:30 upstairs in the church.
We look forward to seeing you all soon and we can’t wait to hear how The Lord has been moving mightily in your lives since we last met!
In His service for His Glory alone,
Helena and Christian
