It will equip you to better study and know the Word of God.

Right Where You’re Supposed To Be: A Study of the Book of Esther

A six-week study in the First 5 mobile app, starting September 25.

And even when we don’t know where He is or what He is doing, we can still participate in God’s good plans as we take one obedient step after another.
