Join Lenya Heitzig and she Ministries as we dive into the powerful book of Joshua in our Bible study, Live Fearlessly. We will learn to march forward in faith and come to know the ultimate victor—Jesus Christ—who promises us victory: "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith" (1 John 5:4, NIV).
This semester, we will discover that victory comes to those who faithfully trust and obey the Lord. As we learn about God's enablements, presence, tactics, and monuments, we will acquire His strength to live fearlessly.
Join us each week for a semester of powerful teachings by Lenya Heitzig, meaningful worship, and intimate small groups where we will learn to put the Scripture into practice in our everyday lives. This semester, don't miss Titus 2 Tuesdays, where we will learn practical and valuable lessons that will equip us to become godly Titus 2 women in our homes and communities.
