Tuesday Morning Women’s Study Group begins meeting again on September 10, 2019 with our new study “The Shelter” by Sheila Walsh:
In a world of uncertainty, pain, and struggle, where do you find solid assurance and unshakeable truth? In The Shelter of God’s Promises, a ten-session small-group Bible study, gifted Bible teacher and inspiring speaker Sheila Walsh searches Scripture for what God has promised us, what God’s promises mean, and how those promises provide the foundation for daily confidence, joy, and hope. Through vulnerable storytelling and powerful in-depth teaching, Sheila offers a life-changing study on ten bedrock promises of God to help you gain a trust in Him that will sustain you for a lifetime. Sessions include:




  • The Promise of Jesus
  • The Promise of Provision
  • The Promise of Peace
  • The Promise of Confidence
  • The Promise of Love
  • The Promise of Grace
  • The Promise of Hope
  • The Promise of Strength
  • The Promise of More
