Gideon: Your weakness. God’s strength : Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm : This will be a 7 session women’s Bible study written by Priscilla Shirer. Jill Parkaney and Kim Cargill will be leading this study each week.  From the book overview : “When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that—bigger than any one man and his mark on Israel’s history. Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles.”  They will be meeting in the chapel at TCC Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm.
