Friday Night Women's Bible Study & Discussion

Scripture calls Christians to “be prepared” to give answers to anyone who asks about the faith. Are you prepared? Or do you feel ill-equipped? This study will involve watching and discussing a video series by Chip Ingram entitled “Why I Believe,” and is designed to boost our confidence and equip us with the facts of the resurrection, the reliability of the Bible, and the evidence for creation. You will walk away with solid proofs that you can understand and share with anyone seeking hope.
