Summer Bible study of women of the Bible
  Spend the summer with us studying what women first said in the Bible, their historical background, and the significance of their words starting with the Genesis stories. You will be surprised who speaks the most. We are using the book, Bible Women, written by an Episcopal priest, Lindsay Freeman. Step into God's sacred circle of grandmothers, warriors, and prophets, and you will not come out the same. For questions email Chris Schaefer  or Joanna Seibert Men as well as women of the church are welcome. Note meeting place change to Parish Hall.
