  • priscilla shirer: gideon

    wednesdays | 7pm | 8.21-11.20

    smlc fellowship hall

    Come and join WOW - A dynamic group of women meeting on Wednesday nights. We offer you a safe place to come and meet new people, build relationships through bible study and small groups where we can share our faith as we walk beside one another in our challenges, disappointments, fears, and joys.

    This session we will be studying Priscilla Shirers' study on Gideon. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel's hero, filled with God's presence and his passion for deliverance. This study will encourage you to recognize your weaknesses as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. 

    What ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience God's sufficiency. See your weaknesses as the gifts that they are. 

    Please contact Cathy Fuller or Donna Noonan for more information.
