New Women’s Bible Study coming to the Detroit Christian Church starting Jan 13, 2016

We are excited to announce that Detroit Christian Church will be hosting a new women’s Bible study beginning Wednesday, January 13 from 9:30-11. The focus will be on younger women in similar phases of life: marriage and/or motherhood. We will be studying what the bible has to say about these subjects as well as engaging in book studies and discussion. We aim to grow deeper in our walk with God while having other women surrounding us with prayer and support. We hope you will join us!

We are looking for childcare providers to assist us. We expect to have anywhere from 4-10 young children. Please contact Becky Fitzmaurice if you are interested.
