Please join us at Holiday Island Community Church, on Wednesday Afternoons from 1 – 2 PM for our new Bible Study, starting August 3, and running weekly through September 14.
The series is “Walking with God in the Desert”. It is a 7-part DVD series shot in the Holy Land. The series goes along with Pastor Jeff Timm’s sermon on the “Storms of Life”.
Are you going through a difficult period of life? Do you need help understanding a past “storm”? Have you experienced a crisis of faith?
During these desert times, it is easy to think that God has disappeared.
Instead, discover that it is only when we are totally dependent on Him that we find God closer than ever and can experience God’s amazing Grace and provision.
Everyone is welcome:
This series will be given in the Library on the lower level at Holiday Island Community Church
188 State Line Drive, Holiday Island. 479-253-8200
