Circle Study for the Year

"Aging with Grace: Flourishing in an Anti-Aging Culture" by Sharon W. Betters and Susan Hunt
Don't be fooled by the title! This book will be a blessing to any woman alive, whatever her season of life. It will help younger women be prepared as cultural ideals glorifying youth take center stage. The authors remind us that God has equipped us to flourish — to live in the transforming power and beauty of his grace in every season. Books can be purchased at the first circle meeting.

Circle Location & Meeting Time

  • Bethesda/Potomac - "Rebekah" | Third Monday of the month, 7:00 p.m.
  • Bethesda/Potomac - "Martha" | Second Monday of the month, 7:15 p.m.
