Made for Community: Online Bible Study for Women

Extroverts, introverts. Singles and Marrieds. Young and old, poor and rich. The longing to be known and loved…. to be accepted and included is no respecter of age, gender or the color of our skin. God made us for community with Him, and with the people around us.

Intentionally living in community with God and with people has never been harder. The world is a distracting place, and we are a distracted people. But the Bible reminds us that God not only made us to survive in community; He made us to thrive in relationship with Him and with the people He has placed in our lives. Join our 8 – week “Made for Community” online Bible study for women and learn more!
