13th. They currently have 9 participants and do not have a limit. Each participant will be purchasing their
own book Click here to order the book “Sip, Savorand Drink Deeply” by Deb Burma ($9.99)

This is a 7 week study. Information from the study:
Take a break from the daily grind. The idea of a coffee break is enticing, isn’t it? Even if coffee isn’t
your beverage of choice, you look forward to downtime, especially if it is spent with a friend who
wants your company. Jesus is such a friend. The Lord wants our company. He invites us to meet with
Him in His Word. Just imagine what He has in store for us as we meet Him with our “cup”—our self—a
vessel created and chosen by God, redeemed in Christ, and ready to be filled for His purpose. Time
spent in Bible study will fill you to the brim and beyond with God’s Good News. Sip, savor, and drink
deeply from His Word. Receive the outpouring of His grace, His joy, and His peace!

Please Email Rebecca Schiltz or Email Katie Pece for more information.
