Spiritual Growth Ministries (Bible Studies and Prayer)

All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of the Lord stands forever. I Peter 1:24

Like the disciples, are you longing to pray more biblically, fervently, and faithfully? Are you wondering why you lack joy in your walk with the LORD? Do you need wisdom for godly living in your day to day life and relationships? God, in His Word, speaks His truth to these questions. This fall, we will be addressing them in our different small group weekly studies. So, come join in fellowship with your POPC sisters around the Word of God. On a weekly basis, we will be looking deep into the heart and mind of God concerning prayer, joy, and wisdom.

Things to Remember

*If you are unable to participate in a Bible study, but would like to purchase a book, please contact Tammie.
