Women’s Bible Study
8:45-10:30 am, Tuesdays
Starts September 8
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you—your emotions, your mind, your family, your future. As we dig into Priscilla Shirer’s study The Armor of God, we will learn to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Confidentiality is assured. Contact:  Roz Handschke at (262) 644-5896.  Free babysitting provided. 
Men’s Bible Study
7:00 pm, Mondays
Starts September 14
In view of the pandemic and civil unrest so prevalent in our culture these days, the Men’s Bible Study will start this fall with two Bible Studies recently developed by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod which address these issues: “Courage in a Time of Crisis”  and “Anger — A Biblical Perspective.”   We look forward to being together again!
