“Esther: It’s Tough Being a Woman” (Beth Moore)

The O. T. story of Esther is a profile in courage, with many modern parallels for today’s overloaded & stressed woman. Esther, as queen, was as outsider in a hostile environment. We will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to be equipped to live courageously ‘for such a time as this.’

We hope you will find this to be a safe place to . . .

* grow together
* pray together
* worship God together
* discuss together
* share life together

“Esther: It’s Tough Being a Woman” (Beth Moore)

The O. T. story of Esther is a profile in courage, with many modern parallels for today’s overloaded & stressed woman. Esther, as queen, was as outsider in a hostile environment. We will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to be equipped to live courageously ‘for such a time as this.’

We hope you will find this to be a safe place to . . .

* grow together
* pray together
* worship God together
* discuss together
* share life together
