Walking With Purpose

Walking With Purpose (WWP) is a weekly women's bible study. Through personal study and small group discussions, the daily struggles that we face in modern life will be linked to solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Church. Do you crave meaningful connections with other women at St. Mary's, and want to grow in your faith? Would you like to know more about how Scripture relates to your everyday life and all its challenges?

If so, we invite you to join Walking with Purpose here at St. Mary's Parish. Join us this Fall and discover something more! Come as you are and see what our wonderful program is all about!
Walking With Purpose meets Thursday evenings, from 7:00 - 8:45 p.m., beginning in October. Our first evening together will be October 7, 2021. We will continue to meet through April 28, 2022. All of our meetings will be held inside St. John Neumann Church's Seelos Hall, or inside St. Mary's Elementary School. There will also be an option to attend virtually.  
We will be offering two different bible study courses:
1.)  "Opening Your Heart":  This is a great course if it is your first time joining Walking With Purpose. No previous background or experience is necessary, just a desire to explore the bold plan that God has for you! Come learn about the purposeful life you were meant to live. Discover a more personal relationship with Jesus, and increase your trust in His unconditional love.
2.)  “Beholding His Glory”:  Experience an abundance of love, joy, and peace in your life, as you recognize the greatness and power of God. You'll learn of His desire for deeper intimacy with each one of us. Only Christ can solve our problems. Only He can satisfy our needs. We’ll also see how all of Scripture points us to Jesus, our Redeemer, even starting in the Book of Genesis.
