Women's Life Discovery Bible Study
9:30 AM
A great community-wide Bible study that has been occurring for decades here in Lodi. Emanuel invites you to come and join in the gathering in the specious Social Hall.

Life Discovery Bible study was the idea of a group of women who wanted a time away from their families and children so they could get together for fellowship and study the Bible. They began to meet on a week day morning while their children were in school and husbands were at work. The result was that a women's interdenominational Bible Study called Life Discovery Bible Study came into existence.
