​ENTRUSTED: A Study of 2 Timothy—This is a 7 week women’s DVD Bible study by Beth Moore starting October 6th on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret! God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the Gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness. This study will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Contact Cathy Camera to join in and order your workbook ($15): 265-5202 or at cathycamera@charter.net.
