If you long for the covering of God’s grace, let Kay Arthur guide you through the Word of God. Discover how to appropriate God’s grace for every situation and every emotion you must face.  Contact: Judy Mansfield (808)2693823,

Voices…Hearing God in a World of Impostors by Pam Gillespie. In a world of sensational spiritual claims, do you ever wonder when you should listen and when you should run? Jesus warned His disciples in Matthew 24:24 that “false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” IT’S TIME TO STOP WONDERING and start discovering biblical answers so you can discern and stand firm in these last days. In this study, you’ll examine the Bible for yourself and hear God’s voice throughout the pages of the Old Testament. You’ll also start learning how to identify the source and methods of other voices that seek to destroy. Starts Thursday evening, February 7th at 6:00 pm.        Contact: Kim Alessandra (505)507-7119,
