Morning Bible Study children of the day

The Study 

Children of the Day

By Beth Moore 

The New Testament believers carried the Spirit of God as they walked along the shores of Thessalonica, just as you carry the light today.  Your circumstances and conditions are not coincidental in your journey, God’s timing is impeccable.  As we face real crises, real medical diagnoses, real afflictions, real relationships, real doubts, real concerns, and real fears, let the tide wash your eyes with fresh vision from the waters of God’s Words in Thessalonica.  Don’t let pride or timidity come between you and the presence of God. 


This study will take the place of our 7:00 P.M. Midweek Bible Study.





Week of Prayer – March 4-11, 2018

Right here and now, you can play a part in pushing back lostness.  As we approach the 2018 AAEO giving season, begin to pray about how you and your family can help reach our goal,  Learn more
