Lincoln Christian Church would like to invite women to a six week ladies bible study on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. They will be reading the book: “The Story”. The Story is a book full of excerpts from God’s Story, the Bible, and thoughtfully placed in chronological order. Each week they will discuss questions from the following week’s reading. Chantell Mills will also give strategies that will help you to understand God’s Story more fully. This session is great for someone who has never studied the Bible before and will rekindle the flame for God’s Story for those who have known this Story for many years. Sessions will start Monday, January 28 and run thru Monday, March 11th. You may contact Chantell for more details at 217-314-9101 or
