Cedar Falls Bible Conference Womens' Event with Lisa Beatty

Title:  Faith for the Journey

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

2:00-4:30 p.m.

Event Center

Through faith we come to know Christ as Savior, but the moment of conversion is not the end of our journey of faith. God calls us to trust Him and stop depending on our own personal perspectives about life as we seek to follow Him with whole hearts. Together we will explore the life of faith and consider the lives of two New Testament women who demonstrated a commitment to walking by faith, not fear. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:8)
