Women's Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Thirteen women (eleven from our congregation and two from Laurel
Street Methodist in Dublin) met during the months of January and February each
Wednesday morning for a bible study.One
of our members, Leta Sage, led the group in the six week study “Stepping Up”,
written by Beth Moore.Meeting in our church,
the group usually had a great turnout (weather permitting). In fact, it went so well that we have decided to continue to meet each Wednesday morning at 10:00 and study other topics.

time, and are looking forward to the February Community Supper.
