Looking for spiritual as well as physical refreshment? Then join us for our new Bible study group, which meets every first and third Tuesday at 12 noon (unless there is a holiday). While enjoying a cup or two of English tea and traditional tea sandwiches and cookies, we will be learning about the “Bad Girls of the Bible” (and what we can learn from them).
With a flair for entertaining, her professional background as a teacher and her life-long membership at Larison’s Corner (which has led to her being thoroughly-grounded in the Bible), Lois Riggs is our favorite choice to lead the Bible study this fall.

Tuesday, October 8th kicked off our first Bible study for the 2019-2020 church year. Over raisin scones, finger sandwiches and tea, we discussed the first “Bad girl of the Bible”, Eve, who definitely had food issues. She learned the hard way that you don’t debate with Satan. Better to flee, knowing God’s Word will prevent you from being tricked by Satan and avoid blaming others for your shortcomings. All timeless lessons, so appropriate for us today. Please join us Tuesday, October 22 at noon for our next meeting to learn about the second “Bad girl of the Bible…Potiphar’s wife. (Perhaps you’ve never heard of her? Come be introduced.)
During our second Bible Study on Tuesday, October 22nd, over finger sandwiches, tea and scrumptious pumpkin scones, attenders learned about Potiphar’s wife. (Potiphar was the head bodyguard of the Pharaoh and owner of Joseph.) We heard the story of the circumstances that led to Joseph’s imprisonment. He had a most interesting background, to say the least. Our next Bible study, “Lot’s Wife: Pillar of the Community” will take place Tuesday, November 12. The fourth Tuesday falling just before Thanksgiving, we are moving the following Bible study to December 10th. The topic is “The Woman at the Well: Dying for a Drink.” Please join us to learn more about women in the Bible and partake in fellowship, friendship and delicious food.
