New Women’s Bible Study starting on Tuesday, January 8th 9-11 am or Thursday, January 10th 6:30-8 pm at ClearView.  Psalm 23: The Shepherd With Me by Jennifer Rothschild.  
Join us for this 7 week study on Psalm 23.  Every woman longs for someone to protect and care for her-someone to guide her when she’s not sure of her next steps, to provide rest when she’s worn out, to walk with her when the valley is dark.  God is the Good Shepherd whose companionship provides the comfort and confidence every woman needs.  No matter what season a woman finds herself in, she is safe with her Shepherd.  
– Explore the depths of God’s care tucked in the psalm you’ve always loved.
– Trade in the myth of self-reliance for the truth that God will take care of you, no matter what.
– Know that your vulnerability is not a liability-God made you to need Him.
– Release fear and trust the Shepherd’s goodness in every season of life.
Childcare provided.  Sign up online, church office or at Info Center. Cost for book is $13.
