Choosing Graditude: Your Journey to Joy
How do we choose gratitude in the midst of pain and the overwhelming circumstances of life? How important is it really to give thanks in all things? Join us as we explore Nancy Wolgemuth’s Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy. We'll meet for five Tuesdays in June and July to explore the biblical and practical aspects of what makes gratitude truly Christian as Christ offers us joy in the hardest places of life. Our study will include a large-group time featuring “table-talk” discussion and prayer. Included in the book is a 30-day devotional guide which women can use to finish out their summer.
Childcare is available through 5th grade on Tuesday mornings with registration by Monday, May 22.
