District Women's Study with Rev. Sheila Bates & Rev. Jean Tippit

If you have ever felt overwhelmed with the busyness of life or you have longed for a little peace and quiet? Then this Bible Study is for you.  As humans, we were created for Sabbath. We were created to need rest for our bodies, minds, and souls. On Thursday nights starting February 28, at 6:30 pm, gather with other women to study Breathe, Making Room for Sabbath by Priscilla Shirer.  This study will help women find the breathing room to live their everyday very hectic lives.  The study will look at what it means to create Sabbath and space to grow in your relationship with God. The group will be led by Rev. Sheila Bates, Associate Pastor at Dauphin Way UMC and  Rev. Jean Tippit, Associate Pastor at Christ United.  The study will be held in the fellowship hall at Spring Hill Avenue United Methodist Church. Invite your friends and join us for study and rest.  The cost of the book is $13.00 and you can pick one up at Dauphin Way UMC and Christ United.  For more information, contact Sonya Carson at sonya.carson@christunited.com.
