The Armor of God by Priscilla ShirerTuesday June 7, 2016 to Tuesday July 26, 2016
Join us for a 7-week study for women only on Tuesday evenings this summer!
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.
But his reign stops right here, right now. With you.
The enemy always falls miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. A woman who is armed and dangerous.
This study is an action plan for putting on your armor and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory against the enemy!
Cost: $16 for the study guide
Childcare is available for children under 10; $17 per child for the whole study.
