New Year, New Women’s Bible Studies at Montrose Church


On Fridays through March 27 from 8:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. and on Wednesdays through April 1 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., Montrose Church is having a women’s Bible study focused on the book, “Seeking a Heart Like His” by Beth Moore.”God will never give up on you.” Explore how David’s life proves this promise to be true. In this examination of the “man after God’s own heart,” David will delight and disappoint you. You’ll want to be just like him at times and nothing like him at others. If you’ve ever experienced doubts, temptations, losses, family problems, or personal inconsistencies, this study is for you! Childcare provided.

On Sunday mornings through March 29, a study of Beth Moore, “Breaking Free” takes place from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“Breaking Free” leads readers through a study of the Scriptures to discover the transforming power of freedom in Jesus Christ. In this study, Beth Moore explains that anything that hinders us from the benefits of knowing God is bondage. With themes from Isaiah as a guide, you’ll identify spiritual strongholds in your life, no matter how big or small. Childcare provided.
