THANK YOU ANN WHITFIELD FOR YOUR RECENT BIBLE STUDY SERIES !!!!!  We thank Ann for her superb Bible instruction on the topic of how we, as Christians, are to live during these increasingly turbulent times. Ann’s dedicated instruction and keen insights of the Biblical text offered bountiful reassurance to those who attended her class that our true peace is with the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus.
