We are now signing women up for the fall Bible study series. This autumn we are taking a look at another study by Priscilla Shirer called, "Breathe: Making Room for the Sabbath". This study includes 5 video sessions with four weeks of homework. We are meeting on Monday evenings from 6:00-8:00PM and on Wednesday morning from 10:00AM to Noon. Childcare possibly available on Wednesday mornings. Start dates are Monday, October 13th and Wednesday, October 15th. Workbooks are $10 each. Women interested in participating can sign up after Church this Sunday or send a message to Faith Community Church on Facebook. 

A brief description of the study:

    "One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We                 constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting         time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. In the         Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites' mindset. He didn't just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and         enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and             exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life." (
