Women’s Bible Study

November 11th at 6:30pm in the Loft. 

Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future.  Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together.  And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time.

Interested in leadership and developing these skills? The Diocese of Milwaukee is looking for qualified youth to participate on a Diocesan Youth Council. What does this council do you ask? It plans events for the youth of the diocese of course! At this time we want to plan a few major events a year, specifically for spring and fall 2016. But these will require at least two previous planning sessions. Please keep in mind that this will require some travel and time commitment.
