While this study has been crafted for in-home use to provide you with the convenience for finding time to study on your own, there will be a discussion group meeting on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. during Adult Education.  Bring your book, bring your Bible, and let’s discuss together!

Women's Bible Study-
  Fourth Tuesday of the month, 7:00 p.m.
All women are invited to the monthly Women’s Bible Study on August 27th in room 207. This Summer’s theme: Lessons from Esther. The book of Esther is one of the latest writings of the Old Testament, perhaps written to inspire Jews who had been scattered in the diaspora. The narrative takes place in the court of the King of Persia, King Ahasuerus. Some think that it was written to explain and establish the Jewish festival of Purim. This three session-study is brought to us by Kay Ward, a bishop of the Moravian Church who lives at Marquardt Manor, a Moravian retirement community in Watertown, Wisconsin. She continues to serve in ministry as a pastor to pastors and intercessor for the church. Before retiring from the staff of Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, she served in team ministry with her husband, Aden. Kay was the first woman to be elected a bishop in the 541 years of the Moravian Church.
Thursday Bible Study- Thursdays, 10 a.m.
Our study continues on August 22nd as we focus on the 8th and 9th chapters of 2 Corinthians.   



Book Club- 3rd Thursday of the month, 7:00 p.m. 
For August, the House of Prayer book club will be looking at the book “The Baker's Secret" by Stephen P. Kiernan.
