Are you going through hard and difficult times, with faith hard to hold on to? Come join Women of the Word for help and guidance. WOW is an interdenominational Bible-centered study with weekly small group interaction, large group worship and teaching.
Attendees will learn to grow in faith, hope and love by studying lessons from teacher Ray Vander Laan. By using scriptures from the Bible, Vander Laan will guide participants to a better understanding of God and help them through those difficulties.
WOW will start its 16th season with a Growing in Godliness Kickoff on at 7 p.m. Aug. 28 at Waterman Presbyterian Church, 250 N. Cedar St., Waterman.
