FIRST PLACE 4 HEALTH & GRACE CHAPEL
This group meets every Monday from 1:30-3:00pm in Room 101 of the Adult Learning Center (2 Militia Drive), located at our Lexington Campus.
STRONGER EVERY DAY, is a First Place for Health Bible study in the My Place for Bible Study series. Do you want to become a stronger person? Are you falling apart due to physical problems? Are personal struggles weighing you down emotionally? Are work and other demands making you mentally exhausted? Are you spiritually dry? We all have seasons when we feel weak in one way or another. However, in these seasons we can turn to the Bible, which provides teaching about how to become stronger people in those various areas.
This study will focus on biblical characters who demonstrated one or more kinds of strength. While none of them were perfect, we will examine their lives to glean the best of what they can teach us so we can become stronger. After all, it is easier to learn from someone else’s example than to experience a particular struggle ourselves.
