“Redeemed”: New Women’s Bible Study
When we become followers of Christ, we are redeemed. This begins a lifelong journey of being transformed into His image. The women of First Melissa are invited to join a new Bible study, “Redeemed,” designed to help us better understand our faith so we can better share our faith. This new study will be offered at two different days and times beginning Wednesday, March 15, at 6:30 p.m. (led by Lydia Fletcher), and Thursday, March 16, at 9:30 a.m. (led by Sally Roman). Classes meet in The Cube (Bldg. A). The cost of the study guide is $13. For more information, contact us at 972.838.2277 or women@firstmelissa.com.
