CHILDREN OF THE DAY is a verse by verse, nine week study of I and II Thessalonians. This study is produced by Beth Moore founder of Living Proof Ministries. She says, "We will learn how to let go of our past mistakes and discover that our circumstances are not coincidental - God's timing is impeccable." We will be watching weekly videos, discussing them and doing an at home study book. Workbooks are about $17.00 and can be purchased the first week of study. Please call me before August 31 to sign up so that I can order enough books. You can call me for any questions and/or to sign up for class. Thank you.
