New Women's Bible Study: Begins Tuesdays at 9:30am on September 12th! How can we stand firm against the enemy's onslaught of attack upon our lives and our world? It is by putting on the full armor that God has given us, and activating it with prayer. We will study in-depth each piece of the armor listed in Ephesians 6:10-18. This engaged armor will transform and strengthen us from the inside out, for it is truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation and the Word of God. Priscilla Shirer's workbook The Armor of God can be purchased at the Bookstore. Questions: Call Darlene at 503.981.3723 or Kristi at 541.870.3811.
