Fall Bible study will begin the Monday after Labor Day, September 14, 2015, with Priscilla Shirer's study, God Is Able.
Best-selling author and speaker Priscilla Shirer brings her most popular speaking topic to print, working from Ephesians 3:20-21 to show how God is our solid rock in life's most trying times in God Is Able.
No matter the details of your circumstance, God's power potential and immeasurable ability refuse to cower in the face of any challenge. God Is Able is a biblical reminder that God is always up to great things, even when His great things are greater then instant remedies and visible change.
