Save the Date – WOW Fall 2018 Study

Women of the Word returns this fall (Monday evenings beginning September 10 or Tuesday mornings beginning September 11) with a new study by Lisa Harper entitled, “Job: An Unlikely Joy.”
“Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. 
“Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this 7-session study by Lisa Harper, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.” (source:
 We invite all women interested in studying the Word of God to join us for this study and encourage you to invite your friends to join you on this journey as together we hold onto this promise from Job 8:21: “He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with a shout of joy.”
