Priscilla Shirer’s book The Armor of God
(includes inspiring video of Priscilla Shirer for each lesson)
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, The Armor of God study is for you.
Only three days of homework per week. Book is $12.99 per person, available at the study.
We will meet each Friday of September and October:
9/4, 9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/9, 10/16, 10/23, and 10/30.
This is a fundraiser for the Bryan Viking Band. The meal includes brisket, sausage, beans, potato salad, dessert and drink. The meal is provided in part by Ruffino meats, J. Cody’s BBQ, and Chicken Express. You may eat inside or go through the drive-thru and take your meal home.
