Women in the Word:
How do you pray? Who is Jesus Christ? How is the bible relevant to my life? What can I do with this knowledge today? How can it help me deal with my worries and fears? Come and join us as we delve into the bible to answer these and many more questions. Whether you are seeking, hurting, or wanting to grow in your faith, this is a safe place to explore and find support. Our groups meet at the church September to May on Wednesday mornings at 9:15AM with childcare provided, or Monday evenings at 7PM. We also have other community groups that meet at homes around Tsawwassen and Ladner. Find what works best for you.
