FOR WOMEN: GOD'S COVENANT – No subject ties the Word of God together more than covenant because everything God does is based on covenant. As you learn about covenant it will truly transform your life and the Word will come alive in a whole new way. Come join us as we dive into God’s enduring promise and see how the remarkable ways the old covenant points to the promises of the new covenant--the covenants God made for you.
