Bible study

With so many voices coming at you...How can you know who is right?  Every day you are bombarded with messages that promise happiness, predict doom and gloom, or simply try to grab your attention.  But are those voices trustworthy?  Can they help you steer your life in the right direction?

The prophet Jeremiah boldly proclaimed the word of the Lord, even when times were difficult and the news wasn’t easy for the people to accept.  His example and the lessons he proclaimed will empower you to faithfully listen to and follow the Word of God as you observe his message, interpret its meaning, and apply truth to your own life.

A Bible study on Jeremiah, “Listening to God in Difficult Times,” begins Jan. 20 for 14 weeks at the Enclave Condominium Clubhouse, 3655 Scenic Hwy 98 in Destin. Women only class is at 10 a.m. and men/women class is at 6:30 p.m. If you can’t attend, you can study by remote.

Call Mary Ann Roberts at 217-8766 or email to register or for details.
