 Great News! The Athens Women’s daytime Bible study group (God’s Girls) is expanding. A new group (Young at Heart) is forming for the Winder/Jefferson area.
Our topic for both groups beginning Thursday, September 21, will be based on “What Now, God? Finding God in Transitions” by Jeanie Shaw. God’s people experienced transitions that affected their relationship with God. The same is true for us today. As we reflect on our own personal transition struggles, we pray this study and discussion time will lead us all back to the heart of God, reminding us we are not alone. Teresa Howard will be bulk ordering this book. Let her know ASAP at teresahowarddoula@gmail.com if you want to be included in this book order.

Young at Heart – Winder/Jefferson
When: Thursdays at 10:30am beginning September 21
Where: Rebecca Mapes’ home, 415 Leyland Drive, Winder, GA 30680

God’s Girls – Athens/Watkinsville
When: Thursdays at 11am, new book begins September 21
Where: Lisa Sawhill’s home, 2960 Flat Rock Road, Watkinsville, GA 30677
